A woman has slammed the 'horrendous' state of her house after spending more than £50,000 on building work only for it to abruptly stop leaving her with a large repair bill and 'no kitchen.'
IT worker Lisa Morris, 50, EVDEn EVe nAKliyaT says she hired a company called Eva-Lution to renovate her Llanharan home but the work suddenly stopped last November.
She says she paid the builders £52,900 for work including a kitchen extension - but she claims her kitchen has been left with exposed wires, bare brick walls and no ceiling.
Now Ms Morris, claims her property has 'no kitchen, having ripped the previous kitchen out' and that she is 'emotionally and physically exhausted' and EVDen EvE nAKliyaT living on 'microwave and evdEN EVE naKLiyAT air fryer meals.'
Ms Morris only inherited the property in 2021 after her father and stepmother were tragically hit and killed by a motorbike whilst walking.
Lisa Morris, 50, says that the renovation works have cost her over £50k and still aren't done
Ms Morris says she has been forced to live in the half finished house for weeks
She said: 'What makes it worse is that it's their house.
I was renovating it with money my dad had gifted me shortly before he passed away.
'The house was all I had left of them. I'm emotionally and physically exhausted - this has consumed my life for months.
'I took time off work but I've had to go back because I can't afford not to work, with the situation I'm in.'
Eva-Lution, whose director is 27-year-old Chloe Eva, had eight employees in 2022, according to Companies House.
Ms Eva denied the work on Ms Morris' home was of a poor standard and claimed it was halted due to a 'cash flow issue'.
She said Ms Morris rejected the offer of a £24,544 refund for parts of the job left unfinished.
Ms Morris, who previously lived in rented accommodation, had hoped the renovation would be complete by the time she moved into the house.
She heard about Eva-Lution in June last year through a recommendation and eVdeN evE NAKLiYAT paid a £3,500 deposit the following month.
As work progressed over the following weeks, Ms Morris transferred more money for materials. In the event you beloved this information in addition to you would like to receive more info about eVden eVE nakLiyat i implore you to go to our own web page.
In early September she went to Howdens with a member of Eva-Lution's team and chose a kitchen.
She transferred £11,000 to Eva-Lution but claims she only later learned that Howdens had never received payment for the kitchen.

According to Ms Eva, her company had ordered the kitchen but had not paid Howdens.
An Eva-Lution worker told Ms Morris by text that all the upstairs, living room and front-of-house work would be done by October 16, adding: 'Hopefully we will have the extension built with just the inside left to do.'
Because of this she arranged the end of her tenancy for October 16 but she claims it eventually became 'apparent that the house wouldn't be liveable' by that date, so she extended her lease by a month.
Ms Morris claims she moved in on November 5 with no kitchen, no cloakroom, an unfinished hallway and a garden 'like a building site'.
She added: 'I went on holiday on November 12 and was told that the frame of the extension would be up by the time I got home.
Again this did not materialise.'
On November 28 the company told Ms Morris there was a cash flow issue but a £250,000 investment would be in its accounts by December 2.
'I was also told at this point that they didn't even have enough money to pay for the cement, so I gave them £400 to get the necessary materials so the footings could be completed,' she added.
Eva-Lution workers have not attended Ms Morris' home since the end of November when concrete was laid for footings.
She alleges that the extension's timber frame never arrived and that another builder has since told her the footings were laid incorrectly and will have to be removed.
Ms Eva disputes this and claims the footings were laid after consultation with a structural engineer.
