Holcombe Rogus - New Build
The client had a clear idea from the offset of how they wanted the project to turn out. We took this on board from day one, which meant that we were able to form an excellent working relationship. This was vital as the site was in continuous occupation with the client living in the existing property next door. Good site house keeping was adhered to every day throughout the build.
Our on site team worked with great skill to produce the required features such as hand crafted oak trusses and purlins, oak skirting and door frames, oak flooring and the clients pride and joy… the bespoke kitchen by Paul Lawrence.
The property benefited from solar panels and ASHP feeding the underfloor heating.
Finished with some stunning ‘Farrow and Ball’ colours throughout by of skilled painters this home is well set for the owners to enjoy for many years to come.
Externally the property sits well within its environment with handmade oak and aluminium windows sat in stone walls, natural slate roof and large lead rolled roof crafted by our leadsman.
We are proud to have helped our client achieve their vision, delivered on time and within budget.
Stoodleigh - New Eco Home
Westcott and Son Construction were instructed to build an individual detached house in Mid Devon. The first task of the challenging build was to demolish the existing farm house. After digging 5m into the hillside we laid 300SQM a gabion basket retaining wall and a huge amount of retainment and waterproof tanking as the rear of the house is underground.
The ground floor was constructed of traditional masonry with floors 1&2 being timber framed. The house was of a complex ‘orange peel’ design and contained Sarnfill roof, aluminium powder coated windows which contained built in blinds which complemented the cedar cladding. The homemade oak staircase was made off site and installed next to the lift which fed the 3 levels.
Our skilled tradesmen installed a 25 person sewage treatment plant and full rainwater harvest system.
The project was dressed with high end decorative finish and hand landscaping. All was completed on time and within budget.
Cullompton - New Build
Site setup commenced December 2017, ready for start on site January 2018.
The modern 5-bedroom holiday let comprised of 3 bathrooms and was built to a high specification including impressive feature works such as log burner, glazed façade, Juliet balcony and bespoke oak windows.
A focal staircase with glazed balustrade connected the floors. The client was keen to produce a lounge conclusive for relaxing. This was achieved by installing 4m bi-fold doors serving the decked area and the large vaulted ceiling.
The scheme was heated via an oil boiler which fed the underfloor heating. We also installed solar panels.
Externally the building was finished in cedar cladding the property was accessed by a new 300m road finished in hoggin, although not adopted, it was built to adoptable standards.
Once the 50 person sewage treatment plant was installed, great care was taken to connect the sewage treatment plant to our new build and existing 9 holiday lets. Then the carp pond was formed. The externals were completed by extensive landscape work, a decked area and family sized hot tub.
As with every build there are issues. During the build we noticed the steel frame finished over the window. Working closely with the engineer we redesigned the roof above the glazed window to allow for vaulted lounge.
The contract was completed with budget and as per initial programme.
Demolition of existing garage and removal of existing oil tank.
Erection of New Garage, Boot Corridor, Utility and Shower room with raised terrace. Along with demolition of existing WC for replacement with Glazed garden room. Complete with lead roofing, large bifold and cladding.
