Since the last update at the beginning on February, work had continued by RW Thomas Ltd on the construction of this new family home for our client.
The Rainwater harvesting tank has been installed ready to provide water to the house for flushing wc and filling the washing machine as well as providing water for the garden.
You will see from the photos below that as the month moved on, the block work continued to be built up to first floor level. The steel work at this level was installed allowing the first floor joists and flooring to be laid. This provides a safe working platform for the bricklayers in addition to the extra level of scaffolding on the outside. the steelwork has been ordered for the roof and for the next update we should see the roof timbers been added.
A good deal of time has been spect finalising the order for the VELFAC windows that are to be installed. These are composite windows with a timber frame inide but with aluminium sashes externally to reduce maintainence issues. They will also look great and I can’t wait to see them installed. We have used them before and believe they offer a competative window even when compared to UPVC.
Even at this stage you get the impression of what the first floor rooms will be like. The view from the front upper floor lounge with its 5m wide sliding doors will be fantastic.
Meridian Consult have continued to make site visits as Approved Inspectors and are happy with the work to date.
