Extensive alterations are being carried out to this bungalow in Stroud by removing the original roof and forming a new roof that will allow additional rooms. Due to the configuration of stairs and windows, there was no room for standard attic trusses so all of the new trusses are formed on site with timber and plywood glued and screwed together.
Working with Jagged Edge Design we have been carrying out the structural design, with alterations to a bungalow, removing the roof and adding a new first floor. The new first floor structure is in timber frame to reduce the additional weight. The works were being carried out by Inspired Build.
We have designed extensive alterations to this property in Somerford Keynes, working with Corinium Architectural Services. Internally, the property was reorganised, opening the spaces by removing a number of internal walls. The garages were incorporated to form additional rooms and an extension was added to the rear.
