We work on oak framed garden room extensions with Timberpride, Tetbury. In addition to the extension, a large opening was formed in the existing rear wall. Below are some of the in progress photographs with final images here – Oak Frame Extension.
We worked on this project with Austin Design Works a few years ago. It was previously a house and separate garage but now fully upgraded and with a contemporary link. The building makes the most of the views across the valley towards Inchbrook. There are a few in progress photographs below but follow this link to see the final design – Cotswold Stone Family Home.
There are many different types of surveys and investigations for buildings and the Construction Industry Council (CIC) has produced a useful document defining the different types. The term “structural survey” although widely used should be avoided as it is not well defined and can lead to confusion as to what is included or excluded. A link to the document is included below.
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.
