Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Double garage and workshop plus block paved driveway. Ilsham, Torquay
Churston Builders built this new double garage and workshop with a block-paved driveway and parking area.
This large detached property in Ilsham had extensive grounds but no garage. Only a small area to the rear of the property was available for car parking. We planned the new double garage building to utilise the lawn space to the front of the property where a new entrance from a side road would be cut through the existing boundary stone wall. Once the plot was set out and existing garden features, turf and topsoil were cleared the footings were dug ready for the building’s foundations to be poured. The structure was a double skin of blocks with a pitched roof which would be tiled in keeping with the main house.
The build progressed quickly and once the roof was complete the electrical fixes went in. This was followed by the uPVC windows, doors and an electric opening double garage door. The rainwater from the pitched roof and block paving was dispersed via a new soakaway. Once the soakway was complete roadstone was compacted as a base for the block paving. The rustic pavers were finished with a contrasting charcoal block border. The new entrance was made good and stone from the original wall reused in low walls around the project.
