PROJECTS JUL - SEP 2018
This customer contacted us with an idea of making their already impressive sized home even bigger. Discussing with them their requirements and what options were available a loft conversion was decided. We arranged for the plans to be drawn, building notice issued and the calculations were conducted using a 'Telebeam' system which allows for the trussed roof to be completely removed making complete use of the loft area.
The customer wanted a complete 'wow' factor as part of this work so an en-suite was formed as part of the space with large walk in enclosure, 'his' and 'her's vanity units and a luxurious freestanding bath finished off the room.
Part of a large scale project which spread from May until August, this property had plans submitted for a 1st floor extension to make this already large property even bigger. Whilst plans were being approved we set about the renovation of the existing part of the house. With walls removed, electrics and heating 1st and second fixed, including a Worcester System boiler and Gledhill unvented hot water cylinder. All of the rooms were plastered and then new second fix joinery. Then followed the extension and further alterations to the ground and 1st floor. With more steel work being lifted into place and the irregular roof constructed following structural engineers designs.
The rest of the property was face lifted with grey windows, doors and cladding in place of the existing white items. A lovely family kitchen was installed as well as a family bathroom and ensuite.
Another returning customer this time had a major revamp to their property. Work included moving the ground floor bathroom to the first floor, removal of the internal ground floor walls to create a larger kitchen with dining area. At the same time a set of French doors were installed in place of the window to open up the space to the garden. The Howdens kitchen was installed along with tiled walls and floors. The walk in shower with glass deflector panels, tiled walls and units were fitted to the new 1st floor bathroom. Work involved excavating for new drains externally and reinstatement. Structural steel work including building inspections.
August and September saw us spend some time on one of our own developments. This 3 bedroom detached property is having a major refurbishment including a 2 storey side extension to make a lovely family 5 bed property. In August we concentrated on swapping out the windows to the existing part of the house. A new stair case, fitting in an ensuite to the front bedroom and commencing on the ground work and brick work for the extension.
