Last push before Christmas break!

Over the last 2 weeks we have been flat out completing our trade fireplace restorations and delivering finished fireplaces to shops in London, Kent, Sussex and Surrey. We’ve been fitting in Beckenham, Crystal Palace, Catford, Croydon, Sevenoaks, Wandsworth, Wimbeldon, Brixton, East Dulwich and Herne Hill. Phew time for a break!! Just 2 more days to go!

Mean while in the workshop……..

Last minute rush time with the fireplace trade so a mad week of rushing around collecting, restoring and delivering all over London. We have just began restoration of a beautiful Edwardian cast iron fireplace surround, it has been sandblasted and now its waiting to be fully polished before being delivered back to East London.

Fireplace fittings in Beckenham (BR3), Herne Hill (SE24) and Wood burning stoves fitted in Sevenoaks (TN14), Forest Hill (SE23).

Wow busy couple of days this week so far. An antique tiled combination restored and installed with a slate hearth in Beckenham (BR3) and in Herne Hill (SE24) we supplied a beautiful made to measure oak surround to be fitted with the customers own original Victorian tiled insert, we also changed the tiles before installing for solid fuel use. We also installed a Gallery Collection stove with a made to measure pine surround, slate hearth, chamber piece and slips with a fireproof rendered chamber in Sevenoaks (TN14). In Forest Hill (SE24) we fitted a slate hearth, rendered chamber and Gallery Collection stove. Pics on http://www.facebook.com/rpsfireplaces in the near future.

Big day in workshop……

All hands on deck at the workshop today in a bid to break the back of a mountain of restoration work needed before Christmas. Both vans loaded and out on the road all over London dropping off restored fireplaces to London’s most prestigious shops, just in time for a load more restoration work to come in!!! Back to square one again lol

Wood burning stove installed in Beckenham (BR3), Kent and fireplaces fitted in Crystal Palace (SE20), South East London.

We installed a cream enameled Carron wood burning stove in Beckenham. The stove was installed with slate hearths, slate slips, rendered chamber and wood surround. Whilst over in Crystal Palace we fitted 2 Carrara marble surrounds with restored antique tiled inserts, original Victorian tiles and slate hearths. They were both installed as working solid fuel fireplaces. Pics on http://www.facebook.com/rpsfireplaces.
