Its been a long time since I updated my lease plan blog – sign of a good year I think. Things have been busy in a good way. Just right for juggling my job as lease planner, mum and artist in my spare time.
I’ve had some really exciting jobs over the last year – including a lease plan of a shop in Maida Vale where I almost got stuck in the very dark, very unpleasant basement. Managed to haul myself out of a small hatch just before my make-shift steps crumpled beneath me! I’ve been in some spooky empty flats to do residential lease plans (weird noises and shadows and all), plus some tenanted properties whose sights, smells and sounds were quite an eye-opener. Its funny – when I tell people what I do, they often glaze over a little, but it is genuinely quite an exciting job as you never know what you’re going to find behind the next door. Couple that with flexible hours, being my own boss and providing a much valued service, I couldn’t ask for much more!
Here’s a little picture of an old range I managed to photograph down in the very dark shop basement. I think the whole basement floor used to be the kitchens for what was once, a very grand house. (The whole basement was pitch black so this is with my phone flash).
