We have been involved with this scheme to demolish an old garage and create a new double garage, workshop and a one bedroom flat above. We introduced the client to the architect and constructed a superb building, using Cotswold walling stone and reclaimed stone roof tiles. We used Bath stone quoins and mullions. All windows and joinery were in Oak.
This high-class building blends in well, situated in the historic village of Lacock on one of the few privately owned properties not far from the Abbey.
This is a triple garage with an oak frame effect but the main construction being in softwood without it being obvious. This keeps costs at a sensible level while producing a traditional style open bay garage. The Façade is all green oak on staddle stones white the studs, trusses and feather edge are all in softwood. Roof is tiled in Retained Double Roman Tiles.
After completion the body of the house asked about the possibility of a traditional clock tower which we sourced and fitted.
This job entailed knocking down some unsightly buildings and constructing a two-bay garage with store and games room in concrete block work. To improve the visual impact we incorporated oak beams and used ebony stained featheredge boarding to provide an attractive cladding.
Careful siting and design meant that this improvement provided the additional benefit of altering the outlook from our clients’ property by effectively blocking the view of some rather unsightly, neighbouring, barns.
We also created a shingle access driveway to compete this project.
We replaced an old wooden five-bar gate with a pair of modern, heavy duty, electronic gates.
These imposing gates formed part of a much larger conversion but provide a secure and attractive entrance to the renovated property project above being as part of a larger project. The bricks are hand made Mickelmersh with Ashlar copings and caps.
Stone Garage with Wine Store, Southwick Trowbridge - The garage was built in a sympathetic style to match a number of barn conversions we had completed 10 years previously for the same client. The walls were built in a solid construction and faced with stone. The roof is formed of old pan tiles while the apron in front is Cerney shingle.
This was a design and build project to provide a double garage and a large workshop which arose from a direct approach by a client.
Because of its very rural location, it needed to look, in some ways, like an old barn. We helped to design the building, which comprised of a block work shell which we clad in softwood sawn boarding with oak posts for an authentic effect. The roof was formed with second-hand double Roman tiles to match other buildings in the vicinity. The building was designed in such a way that it would be very simple to make this larger in the future, if required.
