Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Single-Storey Family Room Extension, Marldon.
Churston Builders constructed this single-storey family room extension with stylish roof lanterns during Spring 2021.
The owners of this recently built property on a development in Moorview Crescent, Marldon spotted an opportunity to add a family space as well as privacy to the rear on their property. A single-storey extension was planned and working with the client we specified a large glazed area opening onto the rear garden. The family room extension would feature floor to ceiling windows along with bi-fold doors and contemporary roof lanterns to maximise lighting.
After necessary groundworks were completed for footings and drainage the concrete base was poured over a damp proof membrane. A double skin of blockwork followed along with rigid insulation, quickly rising to roof level. To support the roof structure and the large area of glass a bespoke steel framework was added. Once secured the flat roof timber joists were built along with the framework for the roof lanterns. To ensure a high level of thermal efficiency the roof featured 120mm of rigid insulation, roof sheathing and a membrane surface that allows a good level of flexibility to accommodate the lantern structure with the flat roof area. With the roof and soffits completed the structure was ready for windows and doors and first fix trades.
Work then started on boarding and plastering, followed by second fix electrics and carpentry then progressing to final decorating. The finished effect tied in perfectly with what was already a modern build but gave that extra family space that the customer desired.
