Gaining space, making space.
The construction of the orangery and wine cellar will be the simplest part of the build. We have been spending our time making the structural changes necessary. A side effect of this has also been the removal of a chimney breast. In the washroom above, where there was once a wall taking up the corner of the room, will now accommodate a larger bath, shower was basin and toilet.
Preparing the structure.
Where there were once three rooms and an outside wall, is now one large open space. We have put in a considerable amount of steel supports and pillars to hold the rest of the external wall and internal structure. Clever design will ensure the pillars are not “in the way”. They will be incorporated into the new kitchen island, which will be placed in between the supporting pillars.
