Kathie lives in the riverside suburb of Como in the Sutherland Shire.
Her home is a cheerfully renovated fibro-clad cottage on the side of a steep hill that slopes down to the Woronora River. She (and family) have called this place home for more than 40 years.
"It’s been hard to come to the realisation that it’s time to move on" Kathie explains, but the process has been gradual, starting with retiring and kids moving out - the de-cluttering phase has been going on for years.
Although she’s fit for 70 something, she’s thinking about the next move… her main downsizing requirements are a smaller, flatter garden. With nearly 100 steps between her carport and front door (a long way to carry your groceries!) a garage with internal access is on the wish list too.
So begins the process of getting the family home ready to sell. This is where Blanch & Doyle’s come in.
Slate floor rejuvenation
Kathie still loves the slate she had installed in a renovation 30 years ago. It did however need some work. The DIY sealers she'd applied over the years were fighting against one another and were bubbled and peeled. Now with a professional removal and reapplication, the floors will be easy to maintain for years to come.
“Blanch & Doyle's did an amazing job on my carpet, sofas, rugs and slate floor. The service was fantastic, a lovely bunch of people to have in my home.”
