Progress has been at a rapid pace as we have been working through the whole house, all at the same time, at our project in South East London. In the loft, the roof was being constructed, and down below, the rear of the house was being rebuilt, simultaneously.

Once again, attention to detail is always a priority… right down, or up… to the chimney pots!

As well as a bedroom, the new loft space includes a bathroom, constructed from a timber frame at the rear of the house.

On the first floor level, there are three more bedrooms and another bathroom.

Even outside, the home office is now well under way, and bamboo plants will provide a screen from the busy road that the house backs on to.

We discovered that the flank wall (the side wall to the rear addition, the opposite side to the party wall with the neighbouring house) was unstable. We also discovered that the first floor joists were not tied, sufficiently, into the building. That means, at our job in Greenwich, we have now taken down the whole of the flank and rear walls of the rear addition. You can see the before and after photos here…

As well as dismantling more of the house, we have now started constructing too!

The home office is really taking shape, and we’re excited to share a photo of it, so far…

If you love your home, and don’t really want to move, a home office/outdoor room could be the perfect solution in creating extra space for you and your family. Another outdoor room we created in the past, is this one, below… remember that you can have power, heat and lighting all supplied to your garden room, and it really can be a beautiful and comfortable addition to your living space.

Another way that many people choose to create additional space in their home, is of course to convert their loft. In Greenwich, the works to the loft are also progressing. We are now ready to start roofing…

Here at Create, we’ve had a busy 6 months, and we’ve completed some exciting work! We’ve also, very recently, begun a large project to refurbish the whole house, add a loft conversion, a kitchen extension, AND a home office in the garden, to a home in South East London. We’re looking forward to sharing updates and photos as we go along!

To begin, we stripped out the interior, including the kitchen, bathroom and some of the plaster, ceilings and internal doors. Next, the scaffolding went up, and we began to remove the roof tiles, ready to begin the loft works. We’re also starting to dig out for the footings to the extension, the sub floor to the kitchen and the base for the home office.

For the duration of this project, our client has moved out. It means we can work on the whole house all at once, rather than room by room, if they were still living in the space. It is making for good progress and an exciting pace of work!

The work so far…
