This project was a real pleasure to be involved in as it went away from the recent surge for all things modern but was a throwback to old school building practices and materials.
Our customer based in Knowle visited our showroom and spoke in detail about how he was unable to find a company that would agree to imitate his current brickwork style. Framemaster was more than happy to accommodate and take the challenge on and produce a perfect end product.
The customer wanted the tile creases put into the brickwork to match the current style of the house but importantly wanted the patio area out back and match the pattern.
Handmade Yorkstone is not an easy material to deal with, as by nature they are all different sizes and thicknesses making it a really skilled installation & process.
Originally the brief was for a small patio area in front of the French doors approx 30sqm but instead the customer decided on an excavation of 105 sqm with a set of steps outside of the French doors, a new retaining wall and a ramp to allow for the sit on lawn mower to access the garden with ease.
This was carried out and the photos show how big the area was. We suggested a Modern Roof Lantern give the extension a twist.
Internally we carried out other works such as spot lights, under floor heating, stone skirting boards and window sills plus knock throughs with structural lintels to allow for the open plan living with a new kitchen.
This was a great project and the customer was delighted and very kindly asked all workers on the project round for a Christmas party to commemorate his new Framemaster extension.
We work on a range of custom designs and builds, if you have an idea in mind please contact us.
