We bought the house with a pink kitchen and adjoining small dining area. We decided to make the area one large kitchen. We gutted the kitchen, relocated the pantry, and designed a new kitchen.

We designed the kitchen ourselves, fitted the Insta – cupboards ourselves, and completed most of the work ourselves including the plumbing. The tiling and plastering of the ceilings was carried out by casual tilers and plasterers.
