Extension, Wickford Essex, Part 1

Another small extension, this one at a location we have been before a few years ago.

To see previous extension on this site Click Here

The new extension will link the roof overhang built previously and the small upvc laundry room.




With the old conservatory removed and the concrete base and footings in place , the timber framing can be built, the gas boiler and gas meter have remined in place and will remain when complete.


With the frame complete, the boarding outside can be done on the walls and roof.


Next stage is the roof covering.


With the roof on the plastering internally is now able to go ahead on the insulated and plaster boarded walls.

We have a specialist gas boiler engineer coming to extend the boiler flue through the roof before we seal up the building.



Note the added w/c area below.


Meanwhile the garden directly outside has been cleared and levelled ready for the patio area.


Next the doors and window.
