Bungalow to House Conversion in Eversley, Hook

Bungalow extension projects are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their generous plot sizes, larger living spaces and ease of planning permission process. Self-builders are looking to timber frame for their new second storey extensions due to its flexibility of design and lightweight structure.

Our clients in Eversley, Hampshire have taken their existing 3 bedroom dormer bungalow and created a 5 bedroom home with additional living and dining space to the ground floor.

With the foundations completed for the new ground floor extensions, the scaffolding could be installed for the removal of the existing roof to make way for the new timber frame first floor.

The clients chosen builder undertook the removal of the existing roof along with any additional preparation works to the existing ground floor structure which would be supporting the new timber frame first floor and roof.

The clients went for a tin hat scaffold system that would offer protection for the workers completing the construction works below and ensure no delays due to inclement weather.

The scaffolders provided a loading bay for the timber frame panels and materials so that the timber frame erectors could install the frame from there.

The new posi-metal web joists are fitted first creating the new first floor. The chipboard flooring follows these to create a working platform for the erectors.

With the floor in place the new first floor external and internal wall panels could be fitted. The external wall panels are pre-insulated in our factory with H-Control and batten to the internal face.

The roof is assembled and the flat roof areas including dormers provided with OSB decking to assist the roofers.

Internal views of the new timber frame first floor and roof above the existing bungalow ground floor walls. Internal stud walls left open for first fix trades which will then be insulated, and plaster boarded on site.

With the large new extensions to the bungalow, the clients have created much better use of the large plot on which this property is located. Creating additional space and value with a thermally efficient, strong, and durable structure.

Timber frame is often the chosen method for converting bungalows to houses due to the speed of construction and its lightweight structure.
