We are close to completion with this modern two bedroom home. We are adding finishing details to the house and building the front and rear boundary walls. Once the walls are complete and the site cleared a little more we will pour the concrete driveway and also build a modern style sala in the back garden, though we have not been contracted to carry out the actual landscaping of the gardens.
I have previously posted about the design phase of this project. At that time, the project was scheduled to commence in August 2011. However, the client was not ready to begin until January of this year, since which time I have not made any further posts, yet there has been a lot of progress. In fact, all of the structural, block work and rendering has been completed. We are now in the process of fitting windows, tiling and painting.
As it is a long time since I have posted about this project, I shall include the original 3D rendering again.
Construction of the new home is to begin in around a months time, though a firm date has not yet been set.
It can be difficult to design a house without knowing the position, orientation and size of land on which it is to be built. However, in this case the size and layout of the initial design fit perfectly onto the clients chosen plot. However, I have substantial redesigned the exterior styling of the home following further consultation with our client. The architectural design work is now complete and we have now commenced the structural engineering work in order to produce a full set of construction drawings.
We are planning to begin construction some time in August.
