MODERN TIMBER FRAME EXTENSION IN OLD CATTON
We took control of an existing project to build a stylish and contemporary extension on the back of a converted stable block near Norwich. This was a stick-build construction, made with a timber framework that is then boarded up and rendered.
The brief was that this should be a high performance building to optimise efficiency. We used a high quality insulation, ensuring very low heat loss, combined with efficient construction producing a beautifully high standard finish.
For this job we created bespoke machined skirting and architrave to add a stylish shadow gap detail, which we then took through to the existing house to tie it to all together.
Attention to Detail
Every one of our dry oak pegs are hand hewn in our Heydon joiners workshop so that the natural fibre of the wood isn’t broken. Dry oak pegs are used in a green oak frame to absorb moisture.
