This project was to demolish an existing storage building and replace it with a 4-bedroom house. Part of the project including renovating a small thatched roof horse shed and incorporate it to in the new house as one of the bedrooms with en-suite.
This project was to demolish the existing bungalow and build a split-level house with basement.
The modern 4 bed house, had a smart electrical system, aluminum windows and bi-fold doors, a beautiful white American oak and glass staircase and a two-sided fire place.
The first stage of this contract was to demolish the existing house. This cleared the space necessary to contain the new dwelling. As the site is on a slope the lower floors where formed by digging down 3 meters. Allowing for the ground floor, to be situated at garden level, and first floor to be situated at drive level.
The ground floor was constructed with reinforced concrete walls for increased strength. The roof was constructed from a cantilevered steel frame (as seen in photograph). The house consists of 5 bedrooms, with 4 en-suites, 1 main bathroom, a study, a family room, a dining room, a TV/cinema room, and a large kitchen and breakfast room that open out onto the garden.
The master suite, complete with dressing room and en-suite opens out on to a large balcony that overlooks the garden. This house was built to all appropriate specifications for a dwelling of this size.
Perry Pear Centre
The ‘Hartpury Orchard Trust’, commissioned this contract for the promotion of the ‘Perry Pear Centre’. The construction of this building began by forming the road and car park. All excavated materials generated by this process were stock piled and redistributed to landscape the surrounding area. The building itself is constructed with an oak frame, this frame was sourced from a local company, then oak cladding and other finishes were applied.
The property has ‘photo voltanic’ panels in the roof, which supply energy that can be stored and/or sold to the national grid. A rainwater collecting system was fitted to collect and supply water for purposes such as the flushing of toilet systems.
The building consists of a tractor shed, ‘a space which is used to manufacture cider’, 2 toilets and a small conference room. The building was partially funded by the ‘Heritage Lottery Fund’ and other local charities. We received an award for the construction of this building.
2 years later we were invited back to build an extension, which formed a library and an office.
