From derelict to a safe, clutter free, healthy Habitat home
This home belongs to Colin who is 81 years old and had been collecting stuff for a number of years.
Sadly, the extra clutter had covered up the rotten floors underneath and meant the house was unsafe for him to live in. Colin had been forced to live in a care home until the work to fix his home could be carried out. Habitat came in and provided skips to clear the house. Once the house was clear we replaced all of the rotten floors throughout the house and installed carpet and vinyl.
Colin's home is now safe, healthier, warmer and drier.
