Devonhurst Guest House, Broadstairs - second storey extension
An extension built over the existing roof, partly on the existing cavity wall below, with the rear and side suspended on structural steel frame. The job was made more challenging as getting the materials including the steels onto the roof required access from a narrow side footpath. One of the many challenges we have to overcome on a regular basis.
Matching bricks is challenging in a seafront property due to weathering however since completion, they have weathered very well and blended into the existing structure. The roof was finished with a very cost-efficient roof dome, bringing natural light into the rear bedroom.
