This site documents a range of design and renovation based projects and is named after my two Dachshunds – Klaus and Heidi.
It started (and continues) with the renovation of a four storey Georgian house in South East London. The house had been owned since the late 1940s by the same lady and over the years she lived in less and less of the house. When work started the house didn’t have central heating or hot water but did have serious damp in the basement and very scary wiring. This site is intended to be a record of the (hoped for) transformation and also a reference point for the materials used, helpful shops and any other useful information.
It also covers wider design projects, a sub-project fitting out a flat, ideas of things to make and anything else that takes my fancy….
I’m afraid I don’t accept offers to guest post. This site is very much a documentation of the things I do, see and any ideas for the future. If however you’ve got an event or something you think might be interesting then do feel free to get in touch. Occasionally I do, for example, review products or attend events but only if I can be open about this association with any visitors to this site and if it’s genuinely something I find intriguing.
