Hampshire – GU51
Conversion of a rundown 1960’s bungalow to a contemporary two storey family house providing approximately 2500 ft2 of accommodation and sited on approximately 1/3rd of an acre.
The bungalow roof was removed and the external walls lowered to enable the existing concrete lintels to be replaced. The internal layout was reconfigured with walls removed, others in filled and new ones built. The existing foundations and ground conditions enabled the project to go ahead without the need for underpinning. The existing ground slab was retained but the original bitumen membrane was removed. The only elements of the original construction were the foundations, ground slab, external walls and approx 50% of the internal ground floor walls.
The new floor addition was constructed in timber frame built off a newly laid wall plate, metal web joists made up the first floor which was boarded before the factory made wall panels were lifted into place. The timber frame construction including roof structure took 12 days to complete.
The existing yellow brick facades were reworked to give a modern, clean finish using a combination of monocouche render and Western Red Cedar cladding. The roof was a premium grade Pardisi slate that compliments the grey aluminium powder coated A rated windows. The front door is bespoke Oak with detailing to match the cladding.
