Here we show in pictures the bulding progress of attaching a new extension to an old house. The house is consisting of two bedrooms and the extension will serve as living roomce.
The extension (future living room) will be built on the site of an old ruined barn and it will have a french door leading to the rear garden.
This is the old house which is to be renovated.
The property looks in a very poor condition but the structure is sound and it can be renovated. Old houses like this do not cost much as they are not inhabitable in the condition they are and also beacuse the new owner has to invest extra funds for renovating them. Usually the owners of such properties are trying to keep the renovation budget low and are looking for reasonable quotations.
When our company prepared this specific quotatio we advised the client that part of the building materials left from the removed old shed could be used thus this lowered the final price of our offer.
This photo shows the ruined old barn wich will be replaced with the new extension.
The building works in progress
1. Cleaning the place for the new extension.
The old barn attached to the house was in very poor condition and it had to be taken down. It had no foundations at all so these had be excavated new.
The old barn was taken down carefully and the materials (bricks and stones) can be used if required.
2. Excavating the foundations of the extension
There is one golden rule when excavating foundations of buildings. It is most important to excavate untill the solid rock under the soil is reached. This will avoid cracks on the walls at a later stage.
