June 2011 - Hand over

Hand over

As June approached, we spent long hours ensuring that the property was ready for hand over. The client is extremely happy with the finished product and we are all set to move the construction to Hessle to begin work on our next project..

Martin Mist, Black Cat Homes site foreman, said: “It has been a pleasure to work on this build with Ian and Keith. We have produced a wonderful house for the client which we hope will give them much happiness in the years to come. I just can’t wait to get started in Hessle on the next one!”

May 2011 - Second Fix

Second Fix

As we are nearing the end of the build, one of the most satisfying elements is when we begin the second fix stage. Previously bare rooms start to come to life with the addition of bathroom suites, fireplaces and kitchens.

Catherine Melling, Black Cat homes director, said: “All of our hard work has come together in the last few months and we start to give the property its heart and soul by completing the second fix stage. We are already well into the planning of our next project and we just can’t wait to get started with that one.”

May 2011 - Landscaping


We are really enjoying working with this client as he has a vision in his mind as to exactly how he wants things to look. The sweeping driveway from an ornate driveway has taken shape through May and, as with the internals, the external element of the building is now taking shape.

Peter Melling, Black Cat Homes PR and marketing manager, said: “We have received a number of calls from people who have driven past and want us to look at building them a property. The quality of the structure speaks for itself and makes my job as PR manager easier as I can just direct future clients to the site on Beverley Road.”

April 2011 - First Fix

First Fix

The internal design is of a very high specification and having the building weather tight in March has allowed us to progress with the completion of the internal finishes. Once the plasterers had finished, it allowed us to begin refining things such as the ornate fire places that the customer has requested.

The client Mr Ian Holbrook said: “We get more and more excited every time we visit the site and all my ideas that we transferred to paper during the design stage now seems to be now coming to life right before our eyes. Black Cat Homes have been fantastic to work with and we just can’t wait until it is handed over in June.”

April 2011 - Window Installation

Windows Installation

It is now the beginning of April and the building is externally, nearing completion. Once complete we have plumbers, electricians and gas engineers all lined up to complete first fix of the services to then be followed by the team of plasterers.

Keith Saunders, Black Cat Homes managing director, said: “We are happy that we are still on programme and that the time we lost during the hideous weather we experienced in November has been made up. The customer is extremely happy with progress so far and is looking forward to moving in around June 2011."

March 2011 - Roof Installation

Roof Installation

We had a fantastic Christmas and new year as our very own Catherine got married to Peter Melling in December. Unfortunately we didn’t take many photographs during this time but you can see that by March 2011 the build was progressing at a fantastic rate. By the end of March we were on programme to make the building water tight and begin the first fix.

Catherine Melling, Black Cat Homes director, said: “After an amazing wedding and honeymoon it was great to get back to site and see the level of progress that had been made whilst we were away. My new husband has also decided to join the company to set up a chartered building surveying company and the brand is going from strength to strength.”

October 2010 - Ground Clearance

Ground Clearance

Following contract award, the client handed the site over to Black Cat Homes on 29th October 2010. The site was overgrown and the first activity was to clear the foliage and level the ground ready to excavate the trenches for the concrete strip foundations

Keith Saunders, Black Cat Homes managing director, said: “It is exciting to have been given the chance to build this house. The specification is for a high end spec building and we are looking forward to handing over a fantastic house to the clients in October.”

June 2010 - Request for a Quotation

91 Beverley Road

Black Cat Homes was approached in June 2010 by a client who had purchased a plot of land on Beverley Road in South Cave and who had already completed designs with a local architect. Black Cat Homes reviewed the plans and formally tendered for the work in July 2010 with a start date of October in mind.

Keith Saunders, Black Cat Homes managing director, said: “These are exciting time for Black Cat Homes. This will be our first contract and we just can’t wait to get started on the build. This project will provide the clients with the house of their dreams.”
