Refurb Success Story 2 - Over Stair Bulkhead, 5 May 2018
At some point in the house’s history, someone saw fit to box over the stair ceiling. The motivation for doing this was not clear to us, as the resulting bulkhead was quite unsightly and created a meaningless void.
Investigating the bulkhead revealed that the timber framed stair partition continued into the void intact. We therefore ripped it all down and started a process of making good; this included re-plastering the ceiling and masonry wall, repairing the stud wall, repainting, and introducing a new light over the stair.
