kitchen wall to extension

R

raddy

I have inherited a house with a kitchen extension.

The previous owner moved the kitchen into an extension, behind the old external wall. The wall has been reduced to about 4 foot high, and is now the wall between the kitchen and the dining room (this was the kitchen) The work surface on the kitchen side is a the regular height - so the wall extends over a foot higher than the kitchen work surface)

I want to bring both sides to the same level, which would mean reducing the height of the old external wall to the height of the kitchen work surfaces to create a plinth.

I know I will have to get new work surface when it is completed, but who do i go to to have the wall reduced in height? Is it a DiY job?

Look under 'Wall Height Reducers' in Yellow Pages. There should be plenty there. :rolleyes:

Try 'Builders', but you might have difficulty getting someone out if its a small dmolition/plastering job.

If you persevere you will get some very good advice on here. But expect the same leg pulling you would get as an apprentice on site.
When I first did some holiday work on a site driving timber to 2nd fit houses, the gaffer spouted out a huge list of timber sizes and quantities and I thought I was supposed to remember them all - so I have no idea what to take to site. I should have asked to a pen and paper but I was too scared !
