Contemporary Alterations and Extension in Wotton under Edge
We have been working on this contemporary make over of this house in Wotton under Edge. It has been a complete transformation of a house with extensions on three sides. There was a substantial part of the original rear wall removed to create a light filled room.
We have been working with PN Architecture on a house extension in Wotton-under-Edge. This involved removing most of the ground floor walls of the kitchen and supporting the first floor on new steel beams and columns.
Bouncy floors can be a problem in older houses. Over the lifetime of a building, the services such as plumbing and electrics can be replaced a number of times. If the positioning of notches and holes is not controlled then you can end up with quite bouncy floors, as was the case with this one.
These notches (top and bottom of the joist) were at the mid span. This had significantly reduced the load capacity and led to all the furniture wobbling when you walked through the room.
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.
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.
Taking apart a house by removing the roof of this house in Crudwell with Jagged Edge Design architects. The proposal is to extend the useable floor space at first floor level by reconfiguring the roof.
