I am pleased to report that our refurbishment project is complete – all bar a couple of small items that the client has asked for us to do in addition to the contracted works. The photographs below are taken from very nearly the same viewing point, the first was taken in April the other at the end of September.
A brief outline of the works carried out includes the removal of the old collapsing roof structure, the rebuilding of a new lowered floor and the addition of a Mansard roof which allows for an extra bedroom and bathroom suite on the upper floor. The refurbishment works consisted of an original contract which has been added to by the client significantly. Despite the additional work, the project has been completed within the required timescale and the client moved in on time. The finshes have all been specified to a very high standard and the client is reporting how pleased he is with the standard of workmanship.
The house now consists of garage parking for upto 4 cars with a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom flat above. A galley kitchen and a living room complete the living space. The large bi-folding doors lead out onto a roof terrace on which has been laid a composite decking. The use of this system allows for a floating deck design; something standard timber decking does not do well due to its tendancy to want to ‘warp’ as the weather changes. The design means that the deck frame attachment does not penetrate the GRP roof cover of the garage below.
Other than fitting the roof terrace balustrade our work is now done.
