Plastering done

During the first phase, the empty properties were refurbished to create one larger adapted residential home for young carers and their families one complete with lift outside for wheelchair access, cafe ,boutique , and a walk-in support and advice centre .

The aim of the project was to create a place for young carers within the Blackpool community, the advice centre will have a private space for counseling .

Propping under floors

Propping underneath the floors was a cramped and dirty job but was necessary to help the props up above carry the huge weight of the central walls while the lintels were installed enabling the wall underneath to be taken out to create one large room .

Building up front garden area

Nick Knowles, the BBC DIY SOS presenter, said: “We couldn’t have done this without the amazing support of all these trades. The enormous amount of help – in time, materials, labour and much more- is a tribute to our nation’s building industry.”

The front patio crew

The front garden area was a huge challenge requiring over 40 tons of hardcore to build up the levels before the patio could be laid enabling the fitting of the disabled lift with steps to the other side. We created huge planters from railway sleepers a new tarmac path then plants and turf could be laid to create a property to allow these young carers some respite .
