The coach house was once our customer’s garage. The conversion was for their elderly mother to downsize too.
The lean too roof at the end of the building had to be taken down and rebuilt reusing the original bricks and a silica sand and lime mortar.
During the restoration process we stripped the roof and reinforced some of the sagging rafters. The team then did away with the fascia and soffit and fitted oak sprockets, and air dried oak clipper boards. We then removed an ugly RSJ and replaced it with an oak bridging beam machining two tie beams into it.
The entire floor was dug out and concreted. A timber wall was built all around the outside wall with a damp proof membrane to prevent water ingress. We fitted Accoya joinery and underfloor heating. The team also created a wet room.
The paved area at the front entrance to the building is Indian sandstone, at the rear of the building we levelled fitted brick edging and turf around the potting shed.
The Potting Shed
The purpose of the potting shed was to replace lost storage from the converted garage we created a timber frame building with oak weatherboard, slate roof, direct glazed oak truss façade with bifold doors the front was a seating area and the rear was storage for gardening equipment, should you be considering the installation of an Oak Building feel free to get in touch.
