We have reached the end of the first week of framing and a lot has been achieved. The garage is now underway. You can see, in the image below, the front double garage opening (4800mm) along with a single width opening (2400mm) at the rear. This will give us a lot of flexibility in the future for access to the rear of the property. We have also added two metres to the width of the garage. You can see this from the frame section to the right of the double opening. This makes the total internal width of the garage to be 7500mm. Plenty of room for a work bench, shelving (and most importantly) a fridge!
Today we received two copies of our Final Construction Drawings, Colour Selections, Sketches and a building variation. This represents the last opportunity we have to ensure all is correct before moving into the construction phase.
Once the content is confirmed as ok, Carlisle have requested that every page on both copies is signed by us and one complete set returned to Carlisle for their records, with the other remaining with us as the client copies.
From the contract stage there have been a number of further reports and site surveys that have been undertaken which have been reflected in the building variation.
