This detached rural property is set in large grounds in Surrey. It consists of a number of apparently separately developed connected parts. Apart from small extensions to the existing property and some internal re-modelling the principal feature of the scheme was the recladding of the main elevations to unify the property and provide solar shading.
Initially, checks were carried out on the various forms of construction employed within the property and in relation to foundation details.
To avoid potentially expensive foundation strengthening costs the recladding took the form of timber frames partially cantilevered off the existing roof structure.
A repetitive template of plywood fins were designed to form the cantilevers allowing ease of construction on site.
