This single storey extension, a project that has been running for the past 6 months is just about finished, at least in terms of the building fabric.

There is much external landscaping still to do as you can see.

I don’t usually advertise the residential work I get involved in. Remodel works better when its focussed in the commercial sector.

However, I wanted to credit the team who build this project and to point out the importance of using local trades when building. Its something I see repeatedly become an issue in my commercial work. Building professionals who don’t know each other take time to gel.

In this case the project team are all local to the site, have all worked together over years, and have done a very very special job in building this fairly large scale addition to a 4 bedroom family house. Here they are;

-Ratcliffe Joinery and Building Contractors of Laycock – Jonathan is the joiner, Anthony is the bricklayer.

-John C Pickard and Sons (Plumbing and Heating) LTD of Laycock – David Pickard is the plumbing and heating engineer

-Nick Raby of Oakworth – Electrical Contractor

-Terry Moon of Oakworth – Tiling specialist

-Hallidays Joinery of Keighley – Superb set of oak doors and windows including the massive Bi-fold door set.

– F.R.Varley Associattes of Skipton – Consulting engineers. Some pretty big steels when into this scheme.

-Kirkstone Quarries of Skelwith Bridge, Ambleside, Cumbria – ok not that local but its the best worksurface I’ve ever seen.

More soon on the interior.
