Stuart was on site yesterday to visit the works at our replacement dwelling project on the outskirts of harrogate. The windows are now in and the exterior of the project is looking a lot more complete, with external lighting, downpipes and window flashings complete. Inside the boarding out for the plaster is well under way and the internal spaces are becoming a lot more visible. We cant wait for the next step and finishing items to start going in.
Work is well underway on this replacement dwelling scheme on the outskirts of Harrogate. The steelwork is now complete and the first floor is in place meaning the timber frame which forms the first floor walls and roof is well under way. This starts to give an impression of the final form of the building, which we are very happy with. The fully glazed gables will look rather special once complete.
Shaw and Jagger are proud to announce that planning permission has been granted for the construction of a new boathouse on the shores of Derwentwater within the historic Lingholm Estate. The scheme has been developed over a number of years with careful consideration towards the National Park and with extensive consultation with the local planning authority. The scheme represents a modern reinterpretation of the existing dilapidated boathouse to provide a space for our Client to house his boat at the lower level, whilst the first floor will benefit from large expanses of glazing to maximise the views over the lake for the enjoyment of the public who will be able to rent the space as a holiday let. The boathouse has been described by the local authority as potentially the final boathouse to be approved on the lake and as such Shaw and Jagger are very proud to have been able to be involved in the design of the scheme which we hope will be received well by the public as a contemporary architectural feature on the lakeshore.
Work is nearing completion on the extension of a Georgian terrace house in Boston Spa. The new extension provides space for a kitchen and dining area and is designed to cantilever out from the rear of the building. The windows arrived on site yesterday morning an are almost in, running alongside the window fitting is the fitting of the ceramic tile finish to the exterior of the building. We cant wait to see the finished product in the new year!
We have recently received planning consent for the conversion of a U-shaped arrangement of barns into a single dwelling. The project comprises of a five bedroom house with leisure facilities and garaging. Work is currently under way to produce the working drawings with a initial start date of October 2015.
Work is proceeding at pace as we near the end of the projects works to the Castle. The inner buildings of the courtyard are in the process of being harled and the interior works are coming along, above is a picture of the master en-suite with feature copper bath. Francis is due on site next week and will hopefully return with more photographs of the internal woodwork.
Joe visited site yesterday to see how construction is coming along on the new stone built country house. The walls are nearly up to first floor level, most the ground floor window surrounds are in and the rooflight to the pool is on. Work should hopefully pick up pace as the milestone of completing the basement waterproofing is now complete as the last of the plinth stones was put in place at the end of July. We can’t wait to see the view from the first floor.
