Grownups have wish lists too, and homeowners sometimes have long ones, which may be very specific right down to the colour of paint they’d like.  Paint they’d like in a new kitchen family room, added on to their home, perhaps overlooking a small but very pretty terraced garden,
According to the experts at Weenen General Contracting Limited, adult wish lists sometimes include smaller, unexpected items, like repairs. Maybe a door needs unsticking or replacing or new lighting in a hallway would make things clearer.
Based on trends the company has seen over the past 12 months, homeowners want some welcoming comforts. According to Owen Robinson, of Weenen General Contracting Limited, a top wish is for a complete spa bathroom area, forming part of a master suite bedroom.  “Rainshowers, steam, porcelain slabs and heated floors are very popular,” he says.
What most people want though, isn’t things and possessions – it’s the seasonal spirit.  “We have the privilege every year, to work with wonderful people on their homes,” Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting points out.  “We’re very proud to be a part of their happy holidays,”
