Third Phase of New Build Timber Frame Home in Woodcote
The build in Woodcote is progressing (please see our previous blogs on Phase 1 and Phase 2) with the brickwork now complete to the whole of the ground floor level of the main house and garage. The beautiful oak porch has also been fitted to the front of the house as well as screed downstairs and plastering to all of the internal face of the walls.
We have made a change of material for the cladding to the house and garage from cedar cladding as depicted on our initial 3D designs to a fibre cement board in an iron grey shade which we feel will be more in keeping with the surrounding properties. More reasons for choosing the HardiePlank are due to it being low maintenance for the new owners as well as being far more resistant to extreme weather conditions than timber cladding options, whilst still having the option to have a cedar effect (which we have also chosen) as well as smooth for an ultra-modern look. To read more on the HardiePlank take a read of their online brochure.
The cladding will be started in the next few days with the remaining windows & doors installed to the house, following this, the decorating will then commence as well as the kitchen and bathroom being installed with the landscaping to the surrounds of the property.
