Electric, Plumbing, Tiling, New Roof Beams Case study

Jan and Renate bought this very large empty property with the intention of turning it into a bed and breakfast guest house. At the time, the property had no electricity and a lacked plumbing. The couple did not know what the regulations were for owners of small hotels; so, they were keen to find out what needed to be done and how the changes could be made to make their property legal.

This was the first time that either Construcciones Blanes or Jan and Renate had created a commercial bed and breakfast, so everyone learned a great deal from this project. The building was well built, the floors were solid, and the rooms were constructed well, so the main problems were the total lack of plumbing and the fact that the whole building needed to be re-wired for electricity.

One of the quirks of the house was that it had two owners – the front door had two locks, each owner had a key to one of the locks, however the front door (either side of it) opens into the same hallway – only in Spain!

Total House Renovation Case study

We were looking to buy a property in Pinoso as we wanted to move inland and away from the coast of Mazarron. We wanted to live in a more Spanish area and were introduced to this property by Karen, Brenda and Maggie from Country Fincas. At the time, however, the house needed complete renovation and modernisation; we decided to buy it in November 2017 and we agreed with Jesus to start work in mid-February 2018 with an ambitious plan to move in on the 1st June 2018!
