  1. I have installed an automatic drain down system as recommended by yourselves. I can do the job in minutes and in the winter months am confident that even after a snap cold spell I will have no problems when I next visit.

  2. We have put in all new matching kitchen items, painted the large bedroom
    New curtains throughout , new bedroom carpets ( lounge this year)
    Decorated bathroom

  3. Installed British Gas Hive to control my caravan heating, lamps
    and CCTV remotely, via 4G solution.

  4. Unable to vote for more than one category, but have had new flooring, new decking, new fire and hob, new small kitchen appliances. We have also had, new bedding, light shades and cushion covers.

  5. New curtains, flooring, took out static seating installed freestanding settees,New beds and bedding, added built in storage areas, New patio and furniture replaced tungsten lighting for LED. Replaced sink and tap. Now more practical and energy efficient.

  6. I have fitted automatic draindown system plus trace heating system to stop any pipes from freezing(works a treat).

  7. Changing the floor covering and upholstery to a plain, light colour has increased the feeling of light and space greatly. Anything to do with leisure is always overpriced so I think carefully before I make improvements. Would I get several thousand pounds worth of use from a veranda? Probably not. I’d pay for a dishwasher though.

  8. New drain down system recommended by yourselves new lounge carpet removed hard standing furniture for 2 move able settees new curtains

  9. Installed double glazing, central heating, and new carpets in living room, bedrooms and hallway

  10. Replaced curtains curtain poles new carpet all seats reupholstered with arms added to sofa replaced dining table extended kitchen new sink taps worktops and splashbacks
    New King size bed bedding curtains etc
    Extended Decking side and front installed LED Decking lights New Patio furniture new tool shed installed ornamental Posts with rope and gravelled area as a feature… That’s it so far!

  11. What sort of paint is best to use to cover the original wall covering? I have changed soft furnishing but have been wary of painting the walls as the paper is textured
