Self Build House in Bradfield, West Berkshire

Our self-build clients in Tutts Clump, Bradfield contracted Vision Development in late 2017 to manufacture and install their new double garage with an annexe above so that they could reside in here whilst their new home was constructed. There was an existing dwelling that required demolishing prior to the groundworks for the new home.

The panels for the garage were pre-fabricated in our workshops in Beenham and fitted with 140mm Celotex Insulation as well as the gable panels to the roof. The attic trusses were supplied by Trusstec Ltd and fitted by our erectors who also fitted the boarding to the internal face of the trusses for racking purposes.

Here are some photos of the finished timber frame garage ready for the internal and external finishes. The garage will be cladded in oak to match the new home and have matching garage doors and windows to the house.

Here the garage structure has been installed and the roof has been covered over with a temporary protection prior to the roofers felt and battening the roof ready for tiling. You can also see some of the existing house prior to demolition ready for the new timber frame structure.

An internal view of the annexe area of the garage shows the gable panel insulated with Celotex and the sarking boards fitted for racking.

Here is the time lapse video we took of the timber frame structure being erected.

With the timber frame structure in place, the Clients commenced the external finishes which was chosen to be oak cladding with aluminium clad external windows and doors. Below are photos of the house from November 2018 which shows off just how spectacular the house is looking now.
