Alterations to a house in Stroud

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.

Progress in Eastcombe, Stroud with the construction of large retaining walls.  The walls are on a steeply sloping site with the lower level  incorporated into an extension to a house and the upper level forming a terrace accessed from the new first floor.  Constructed from Stepoc hollow blocks with reinforcement they can be installed quickly without the need for shuttering.

The architect is Design for Living and the contractor is InShape Stroud.

Conservation statement and Historical Report

Marian has recently completed a Conservation Statement and Historical Report for this property in Stinchcombe, Gloucestershire. Dating from the mid 17th Century, this Grade II* Listed property has been extensively extended and modified since originally constructed. It is now due for further works but prior to this an extensive archive search has allowed the history of the building to be established.  This has helped to inform which features are original and which have been added at a later date.
