Week 37 – Dream Home!
The 2nd fix of this impressive dream home continues this week, and with more than 11 tradesmen on site, it’s been a hive of activity! We welcome back BC Services PHE Ltd and they are working their way through the installation of all the bathrooms in this dream home as well as the MVHR system. We talked this about in greater detail back in week 18 when the BC team fastidiously installed all the pipework throughout the fabric of the metal web joists which were expertly manufactured by Robinson Manufacturing. Opting for metal web joists meant that we were able to shave weeks off this phase of the build as there was need to notch or drill for pipes and cables! Once the MHVR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) is fully installed in this complex build, our clients will have the luxurious feeling of fresh air flowing through their dream home even in the coldest of winter and the closeness of a hot English Summer (fingers crossed!)
Elsewhere in the plumbing and heating phase of this build, our clients chose all sanitary ware from Easy Bathrooms in Huntington, Their showroom was full of the latest trends and more classical heritage style pieces which our client was looking to create for their dream home, and with workable lead times in the current construction climate, we didn’t hesitate to get this all ordered and ready to call off over the next couple of weeks for the 2nd fix. Everything is still boxed up to project it from the dreaded builders dust, but be sure to keep following us over the next few weeks as we start to reveal the finished bathrooms of our client’s dream home.
It’s also worth bearing in mind, that with it’s also the week featuring the extra bank holiday arrangement for the Queen’s Jubilee, so the logistics of deliveries and movements around the site by the PHD team and our sub-contractors has had to be condensed for this week. Cramming 5 days work into 3 days is always going to be fun on a building site!
If you’ve been following us over the past 10 months or so and you have any questions or are considering embarking on your own self build journey, then please do get in touch we’d be delighted to hear about your project!
