Lifestyle Additions builder Alan Bain specialises in first-floor additions and extensions. ‘‘We take pride and pleasure in our work, aiming to ensure the addition looks like it was always meant to be there,’’ he said. ‘‘Many people have mistaken our additions fornewhomes. ‘‘If you are happy with the area you live in but have outgrown your home, or simply want to update and incorporate some modern features andincrease the value of your home, thenwecan help.’’ In most cases, there was no need to moveout of the house while the work was being done, Mr Bain said. Lifestyle Additions offersacomprehensive service, from the initial sketch, designing solutions withabudget in mind, preparing plans and documentation for council approval, right through to the completion of the project. The family business prides itself on producing consistent quality work and providing personal attention to the owners’ needs and queries.

Wear the appropriate personal protective equipment. ‘‘Read the manufacturer’s instructions. Keep your power tools’ safety guards in place.Makeall necessary adjustments to powered machines before switching them on. Never attempt activities beyond your level of skill.’’ Specialising in Shopfront & Domestic Roller Shutters SAVE $$$ - FACTORY DIRECT PRICES Master Lic:408646770 built-in WARDROBES GREATA for RAIN HARVESTING, with NO LEAD build up in your tank You can flash from TILE TO ZINC roofing LIGHTWEIGHT and EASY TO USE 20 YEARS WARRANTY THREE GREAT COLOURS to choose from Roller Shutters Shopfront Shutters Stainless Steel Doors Automatic Garage Doors Window Shutters Safety Doors Window Grilles Automatic Gates FREE MEASURE & QUOTES Showroom & Factory: IN STOCK NOW.
