Ugly House to Lovely House

This year we were approached by Amazing productions, Producer George Clarke, to tender for a house extension and renovation in the Lexden area of Colchester. The concept of the TV programme is to bring houses constructed at a time when house fashions and styles were not at their best or have lost charm very quickly over the years. This becomes a challenge to use an existing building layout and bring it up to date with current construction ideas and interior architectural design.

We were very pleased to hear we won the tender and got to work immediately on the project in hand. The Architectural designs have been produced by well known London based Chris Dyson Architects (CDA), and are currently being constructed by us at All In One.

The second series of Ugly House To Lovely House is due to air in October 2017, which gives us very little time to construct this build. However, we all love a challenge…

The project is well underway and we are met with camera crews regularly as well as George Clarke visiting at various stages to view and record our progression.
