Aspect Plastering & Building have recently converted a double garage in Nunthorpe, the conversion was carried out to achieve a purpose built Therapy Suite for our client Alex Adamson www.therapywithalex.co.uk 

Alex knew exactly what he required from the conversion and was involved from the initial design phase right the way through to completion. Although we thought some of his design ideas were a little out there i.e. the single sheet of rusting 6mm chequered plate steel behind the log burner and reclaimed World War two hanger lighting they actually turned out to be fantastic additions and tie in really well with the overall finish.

The build also threw up many challenges, for instance the original roof structure was deemed unfit for reuse once all the timbers were exposed but together we quickly and proactively came up with a solution. We chose to replace the roof and incorporate a vaulted ceiling design.

Take a look at the gallery below which shows some before and after pictures.

The Fat Lads on Bikes along with Aspect Plastering and Building have recently undertaken yet another challenge but this time it was done to support a young family in Saltburn.

We carried out a large Dormer Loft Conversion after the previous builder stole a substantial deposit without even attempting to start work on the project! 

Due to the build being stalled the couples 5 year old son Theo had to make do with a makeshift bedroom in the dining room.

With the kind help and support of local suppliers and contractors we were able to complete the build within budget and would like to thank Micheal Harrison Roofing especially for installing the Firestone roof completely free of charge!, we would also like to thank Gary Mcmanus of Burton Roofing Merchants (Stockton Branch) who agreed to provide the materials needed at better than cost price to help this young family complete this project.

Fat Lads on Bikes commissioned artist Dan Walls to paint a fantastic Spiderman wall mural on Theo's bedroom wall.

And finally a massive thank you to the Ellen Timney Foundation who have supplied bedroom furniture and accessories to make Theo's bedroom extra special.

Be careful when using 3rd Party mobile phone chargers, Aspect has just completed a Fire Restoration project to a property which was damaged due to a cheap phone charger being left on!

The family had left he phone charging on a bed and popped out to get some shopping, in less than an hour the house had been engulfed in flames.

You really do get what you pay for, is it worth saving a few quid to buy a 3rd Party charger? Stick with genuine products if you wish to prevent incidents like this.

Following the successful completion of our walls, ceilings and plastering contract to The Six Medals in Middlesbrough, Aspect Plastering has been awarded a new contract to complete the Wall Boarding and Suspended Ceiling Installations to a new pub in Eston.

Work is well under way on the Sandstone Nab near Tesco Extra on the A1085 Trunk Road which is due to be completed in November.

The pub is part of national pub chain Marston’s new build development programme which aims to deliver between 25 and 30 new-build pub restaurants in 2015 - the nearest being Six Medals in Middlehaven, which opens in a few weeks.

“The Sandstone Nab is named after the Eston Nab which is a local landmark made of sandstone, to those who live along the River Tees,” said Alex Watson, area manager for Marston’s Inns and Taverns.

“We are looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming the people of Eston.”

When opened the Sandstone Nab will be a family-friendly restaurant with indoor and outdoor children’s play areas.

It will offer a two-for-one deal on all main courses and its menu will be packed with traditional pub favourites such as fish and chips and steak and pedigree ale pie, alongside a varied and changing specials board plus a pizza oven.

The bar will serve a variety of drinks including Marston’s fresh cask ales from the chain’s five breweries, as well as a range of wines, ciders, soft drinks and spirits.

“We’re extremely excited about our latest pub, which we hope will build a great reputation locally, offering top quality pub food and an unrivalled selection of cask beers from across the country,” said Matt Avery, area operations manager for Marston’s Inns and Taverns.

The development - part of the Greater Eston regeneration efforts - on the three-acre farmland site next to Tesco includes a McDonald’s, which will create about 65 full-time and part-time jobs.

A statement supporting the original application stated the project will be a “significant” investment into the South Bank ward.

It said: “The proposal would create a significant number of new jobs in an area where unemployment levels are high. This would contribute towards the delivery of a thriving local economy.

“The site is located in a hugely sustainable location, is not at risk of flooding and would not result in the loss of or harm to any heritage assets or important wildlife habitats.”

A new access road will be built from the Trunk Road while the existing farm access will be closed.

The development includes 111 car parking spaces. The £40m Tesco store at Low Grange Farm opened last year.

It is part of the wider efforts to regenerate the area, which have included the Low Grange Health Village and library which opened in 2010 and a £3.5m eco-village in South Bank, which was completed in 2011.

The Six Medals pub was named after Wing Commander Adrian Warburton, who was born in Middlesbrough and was one of the most decorated pilots of the Second World War.

Due to his outstanding service, he coined the nickname ‘Six Medals’ by gaining two Distinguished Service Orders and four Distinguished Flying Crosses.

The venue, within Gateway Middlehaven Retail Park, will be a family pub featuring indoor and outdoor play areas as well as serving a wide variety of food and drink.

Construction work got under way in September last year.


On the new 16-acre retail and leisure development there will also be is a supermarket, a nine-pump petrol filling station, a drive-through KFC and a Costa Coffee.

Aspect plastering carried out insulation, boarding and plastering works throughout the building as well as installing MF Ceilings with a feature ellipse and curved walling.

Volunteers transformed Millie’s room to include a sensory room and wet room - they also had a special surprise for Millie’s brother and sister

After three days of hard work a group of ‘Fat’ lads and lasses have transformed the home of a little girl born with severe disabilities.

For the past seven months, fundraising force Fat Lads on Bikes have teamed up with firms from across Teesside to help bring joy to lives of Millie-Mai Mann and her family.

Millie, from South Bank, Middlesbrough, suffered brain damage at birth and was given a life expectancy of only five years. Now aged nine, Millie can’t walk, can’t communicate and as she grows up, she requires more space and specialist equipment to live a better quality of life.

Millie’s parents, James and Aimee Mann, who describe Millie as the happiest little girl they know, have been trying to raise the funds to build their daughter a specialist wet-room and sensory room through their gofundme page With Millie-ions Of Love.

When Teesside fundraisers Fat lads on Bikes heard about their plight, they took it upon themselves to not only raise the funds for wet-room and sensory rooms but to build them as well.

And this week, all the hard work paid off when the Fat Lads were finally able to reveal the finished article.

Neal Bullock from Fat Lads on Bikes said: “We did it the whole thing over three days. Everyone worked flat out completely voluntarily.

“We moved the whole family out to Redworth Hall who put them up for three days - complimentary - they treated them like VIPs, we can’t thank them enough.

“We worked so hard to get everything finished but when I saw Millie’s face when she came in - it was worth it.

“Doing this has been such a big part of my life, when I got home the night we finished I just broke down in tears.”

Not only did the volunteers transform Millie’s room to include a sensory room and wet room, they also had a special surprise for Millie’s brother James, 12, and sister Ebonie, 11.


Work completed on sensory bedroom and wet room for Millie-Mai Mann in South Bank which was funded and converted by charity group Fat Lads on Bikes.

Neal said: “We didn’t want to leave James and Ebonie out so we completely redecorated their rooms as well.

“Ebonie’s is a real girl’s room while James’ is a proper gamer room.”

All of the materials and labour were provided free of charge by local firms and individuals.

Neal, 42, said: “All of the carpets were donated by Peter Maley, the materials for the wetroom were provided free-of-charge by MB Decor and all the paint was given to us by Crown Paints.

“We need to thank everyone who came and helped make this happen, especially Dave Kay, Shaun Cooper of Aspect Plastering and Guy Powell who were amazing.

“We also need to thank Polyflor UK, The Finlay Cooper Fund, Pinnacle Flooring, Ellen Timney Foundation,”

Millie’s dad James, 43, said: “It’s unbelievable what they’ve done for us - they must all have hearts of gold,

“When she saw it, Millie was taking it all in and looking around.

“I can’t thank them enough, Neal is an absolute legend.”

Mum, Aimee, 32, said: “It’s absolutely amazing. When the kids saw their rooms it just blew them away.”
