Stoneham Construction Ltd
With land at a premium, accessing a large enough patch for a property development can prove extremely difficult these days – especially when the area you’re buying the land on happens to be an island. And that was precisely the case with our customer, David Harris, a property developer on the Isle of Wight and trading under the name of Stoneham Construction Ltd.
David was keen for his company to provide commodious social housing for rent for families living on the island. As a result he was looking at building accommodation with two bedrooms rather than one. The difficulty was the units in the building he was converting had one large and airy room, rather than two.
Undeterred however, David saw his opportunity in the form of wall beds. As an experienced developer with several award-winning projects already under his belt he realised the solution was to insert an acoustic participation between the two rooms and for wall beds to be fitted in both adjoining rooms. This way he was guaranteed to maximise the existing space in each room while at the same time, come up with quality sleeping accommodation for the occupants. Our wall beds were the ideal solution as far as he was concerned.
“Investing in quality wall beds was the obvious answer to this very tricky dilemma we were faced with,” he said. “I’ve been working in the property development industry long enough to know what will work and what will turn out to be an unmitigated disaster. For this particular project I’d already decided that quality wall beds at an affordable price, was the only solution if we wanted to provide a quality product without going over budget and one which would appeal to all parties – crucially, the tenants.”
As a result of his decision David contacted us here at Wallbedking.co.uk and invested in 10 double beds on behalf of the company, Stoneham Construction Ltd. The beds would all be used for the new build housing units his company were building on the Isle of Wight.
David was pleased to find that not only did the Wallbedking.co.uk beds arrive on time, but they were also of an impressive quality and were simple enough to assemble and install. Importantly, they were also easy for the prospective tenants to use.
“The double beds were everything we wanted,” he added. “Really, I couldn’t have asked for better. Price-wise they were excellent, they arrived when we told they would and they work beautifully in the rooms.
“We’ve actually fitted them into a wardrobe and it’s painted a neutral colour – the same as the room – so they are completely unobtrusive and actually add to the aesthetics of the room.”
David assures us that for his next space-saving project he’ll definitely be returning to Wallbedking.co.uk as a repeat customer. Personally we’re delighted and can’t think of any higher standard of praise. We’re sure his tenants will be equally satisfied with their new beds and spacious accommodation.
