Woodbury Avenue - Petersfield


We were contracted to substantially reconstruct and adapt this chalet-style home. The existing front porch/sun room was demolished and the oak beams retained and renovated for incorporation in the new works. A Staircase enclosure and Utility Room were constructed at the rear. A temporary roof was installed over the whole building, and the existing roof tiles were removed and conserved. The whole of the first floor and roof structure was removed and materials segregated and recycled.

Substantial structural steelwork was accurately measured and manufactured to millimetre tolerances. This was installed beneath the new first floor and with columns above to support longitudinal beams the full length of the building front and rear.

The new structure to form the roof, dormers and first floor rooms was cut on site utilising hundreds of metres of treated timber. The roof was covered with a breathable membrane and new clay tiles.
