Originally house had a doggy extension with no foundations, pvc leaking roof , some damp problems. It was very cold place in the winter time. Not really useful space.
Ajax took over the project as design and build. So we had to we have drown plans, submit them to building control, structural calculations in one word complete building service.We have discussed with owners their plans and expectations and full architectural, electrical and detailed plans was done.
Side foundations were designed as beams on foundation footings( not usual for the extensions ). And side walls as timber structure insulated with Kingspan 100mm TP10 insulation. This allowed us to be able to give extremely good price as cost of side walls were reduced. Also it helped with the party walls as we didn’t have to put any extra loads to neighbours extensions causing potential cracks in their properties.
RSJ beams where installed to support rear walls. Beam bearings were restrained and underpinned.
Roofs done as warm roof construction with Kingspan TR31 insulation, 2 velux roof lights installed to provide extra light to the room.
The final results
The results exceeded the owners expectations. The full ground floor renovation gave complete new feeling of the house. With the simple house extension living and dining area were connected to suit modern life of the young professionals.
This Home extension blend with old house giving so much extra space and providing needed space for young family.
Internally owners wanted “cottage style” looking kitchen with Huge Range Cooker, bar style oak worktop, and all modern appliances.
Hope the house pictures after the renovation speak for them self.
