|| Week seven of the Two Storey Side Extension Project in Bexley, Kent
Follow the daily progress during the seventh week of S M Berry's twelve week extension
Scott and his team are ready to begin the internal works on their Two Storey Side Extension in Bexley, Kent at the beginning of the seventh week.
At the end of last week they had completed the construction of the extension and everything was made weather tight. This week Scott and his sons will begin to knock through into the house...
Follow their progress this week by clicking on the tabs below....
The two storey extension that S M Berry Building Contractors Ltd have built in Bexley, Kent was built around a smaller existing two storey extension. Today Scott and his team demolished the first floor of that original extension therefore knocking through into the main house.
All the rubbish was cleared from the site ready to begin the interior works on the first floor which should be completed by the end of next week.
Chester happily showed Elliot and Jed all his party tricks today ... sitting, lying down and rolling over. Then, to show just how patient he is, they began balancing small pieces of their sandwiches on his paws, nose and top of his head, which he left there - although drooling - until they allowed him to eat them. Is Chester learning the building trade or are the team learning how to be dog handlers?
The flooring was laid on the first floor today and the stud partitions (modelled here by Mike - the owner of the new extension!) for the new en-suite and hallway were completed.
Jed was upset because it was egg 'n' bacon sandwich day today and it was his day off!! Poor Jed.
A new structural opening was created from the main house into the new extension and then a new hallway was formed across an existing bedroom to gain access into the extension. The photographs show this being formed and the new studwork in the rear bedroom of the extension once it had been plasterboarded.
After the Building Inspector had been this morning to view the roof construction Scott and Elliot removed the felt and batten from the existing roof to open up the loft space. Another opening was made in the existing hallway and Elliot and Jed filled the new loft space with insulation.
Blackfen Windows came in the morning to fit the first floor windows to the front bedroom and the en-suite.
In the afternoon Tony Munday, the electrician, came to assess the electrical work that needs to be done. When Chester discovered him in the house he wasn't very pleased and took and instant dislike to him. Jed had to bribe Chester with a biscuit while Tony made his escape... it should be fun when the electrical work is carried out!!!
The vapour barrier was put in place ready for the plasterboarding tomorrow....
The ceilings in the Master Bedroom and the en-suite bathroom were plasterboarded today.

We had an extension by Scott and his two lovely lads. Wouldn't recommend anyone else but these guys. Always friendly, polite and easy to talk to - even took their shoes off when they came in! Building work is never a good experience but it was made so much easier with the attitude of these hard working men. Thanks.
