House Renovation Project
Following the completion of another large extension project in Doncaster last year, our details were passed on to this customer who was looking for a house renovation to create a bigger living space. The house was on a slope therefore was 2 storey at the front and 3 at the rear, so they had a dead void space in the middle of the house. The customer also wanted to open up the rear of the property and install some large 4 meter long bi-fold doors to they could enjoy the inside and outside space together.
We began working in July, taking a team of around eight tradesmen onto site in order to provide a quick turnaround and minimal disruption.
The project consisted of:
Widening the outside brickwork and installing a RSJ lintel at the rear of the house ready to receive new 4 meter long bi fold doors
Remove internal supporting walls and install RJ steel beams all inline with structural engineers requirements
Dig out earth so that the space could be achieved and also reduce floor levels
Build new solid wall to retain ground and also install land drain
Damp proof walls below ground level
Preparing the floor with hardcore and damp-proof membrane, followed by insulation and concrete
Knock out new doorway and install composite door to side of property
Plasterboards and skim full rooms
Install new electrical points and energy efficient LED spot lights.
Install new woodwork such as skirting boards, doors, architrives etc
Fit new kitchen units in utility room
Alter plumbing and drainage for utility room and also radiators.
