We were contacted by our clients who were looking to extend to the rear of their property with a super insulated and highly energy efficient timber frame construction.

Using our Closed Panel System we manufactured the panels for the new walls to the extension ready for delivery to the site. As we weren’t able to use a crane for lifting the panels into position, we are fitting the Magply Board on site to overcome the issues with access.

Below are some photos of before, during and after the timber frame extension where you can see: the outbuildings demolished; the panels and steels installed and then the roof installed. The extension will house a new large living area to the ground floor and a large bedroom above with galleria looking into the garden.

Before the outbuildings were demolished and site was cleared and excavated.

The outbuildings are beginning to be removed to accommodate the new block walls.

The site is now cleared and ready for the foundations and new concrete pad to be poured for the timber frame.

With the scaffolding erected around the construction, the ground floor steel frames as well as timber frame panels were installed with floor joists above and 22mm peel clean flooring.

Internal view of the ground floor showing the underside of the posi metal web joists allowing plenty of access for first fix plumbing, electrics etc. You can also see the vapour control foil fitted to the internal face of the panels ready now for the Magply Board.

Once the first floor panels were installed the roof could then be assembled.

Sarking to the roof using 18mm OSB prior to roof finishes being completed by the building contractor.

We are attending the site next week to install the Magply Board to the internal faces of the walls ready for plastering and our part of the works are then done. As the build progresses we will keep you updated with more photos.
