Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Extension, Roof Terrace & works in Links Close, Churston Ferrers
Churston Builders, the Torbay and South Hams Builder, completed this extension, roof terrace and refurbishment project in Churston Ferrers near Brixham during 2018.
Back on home turf in Churston, where our company started back in the mid-eighties under the direction of my late father John Andrews, this project started as an extension to add two large dormers to extend a bedroom and add an en-suite bathroom. The nature of the project meant the structure in place would be open to the elements so a full-roofed scaffold was installed by our sister company Churston Scaffolding. Once weather-tight, work started with the framework for the new accommodation and roofing elements. The client had requested that the new structures were to match the existing dormers so as not to appear as an added structure. Churston Builders were able to source the correct materials from their extensive network of trade suppliers to ensure this expectation was met to the customers satisfaction. The customer had also requested a roof terrace which was constrained by a number of structural considerations. This meant we had to work closely with the structural engineer to ensure the best possible outcome that complied with building regulations and exceeded the customers expectations.
Once the new structure was weather-tight the interior fixes went ahead. The original plans evolved along the way as opportunities for improvement of the interior layout became apparent. We were particularly please with the entrance to the en-suite that was concealed as one of the built in wardrobe doors!
As work progressed our customer scheduled further work both internal and external. A further bathroom was refurbished along with redecoration of the hallways, stairs and landing, replacement of all internal doors and the front door. Externally, all the garden pathways were relaid with contemporary sandstone flags all cut in pleasing curves to really lift and modernise the grounds. To finish over 100square metres of tarmac driveway was relaid.
