More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Lift lobby carpet tiles done

The main diary of the lift lobby tile saga is at

with full technical specs & fire rating of the tiles etc

Wesley O'Rourke of "O'Rourke Carpet Tech" fitted the carpet tiles for us.
I got three quotes using the "rated people" website
and chose the above.

As you can see, they did a good professional job, ensuring the tiles were laid directionally.
The finish to the fitting of the far from square lobby is good too, including the
well fixed trim at the lift door.
