“This is the second extension SMS Timber Frame have completed on our house, and the experience was just as good this time as the first one.
We used JCR builders to complete the rest of the structural works, and they have done a great job, reliable, on program and on budget”
Day 1- Concrete slab is completed by others prior to the arrival of Sms Timber Frame. Our 38mm soleplates are fixed to the slab using 100mm thunderbolts at 600 cts.
Day 1/2- Ground floor panels, floor structure and second floor structure erected ready to accept the roof structure.
Day 3- The roof structure is fixed in place without disrupting the roof over the existing house. The roof is constructed from a single ridge beam along with loose rafters and took just 2 hours to erect.
Day 3- Due to the nature of the roof, it is then sarked using 12mm WBP ( Weather Blister Proof) ply board to enhance the structural capabilities.
Day 4- Tiles from the existing roof are removed to allow for new roof structure hip to be cut into place. The roofers can now begin and are scheduled to arrive on day 4 of the project to ensure the existing building can be kept in the dry.
Completed Project Ready For Render...
Just a couple of weeks later, the external shell is complete and internal trades, plastering, plumbing and electrics second fix are well under way with completion due prior to Christmas.
