Bungalow to 3 Storey House in 5 Days

Tailor Made Designs were recently called upon to assist with the addition of two further floors to a Bungalow in Bookham, Surrey.

The client stripped the existing bungalow roof and prepared the existing walls to provide a level wallplate from which our team erected the timber structure. This included the new first floor joists and steel beams, first floor wall panels, and an attic roof construction.

Prior to manufacture Tailor Made Designs provided the client with detailed drawings of the timber frame structure including line and point loads, the client employed a local engineer to check the existing ground floor brick and block structure and foundations.

The entire structure was manufactured off-site at our factory in Leominster and incorporated design features to allow easy on-site adjustment if required. However, due to the accuracy of dimensions provided from site, adjustment was not required and the structure fitted perfectly.

The timber frame structure was completed in just 5 days and transformed this bungalow into a large 3 storey house.
