The existing staircase had to be repositioned, so structural work was taken for the new staircase and the preparation for the new balconies.
The first fix stage was to level out all floors throughout on both floors. To do this we built off the existing joists with additional cross floor joists to create a level floor throughout. The ceilings were dropped on the lower floor, on the upper level the vaulted ceiling was kept, but we prepared for the installations of two roof lights.
At this stage we were able to first fix all plumbing, heating and electrical systems.
With floor and ceiling ready we were able to install the metal stud walls to create the divides between rooms. A curved feature was created on the upper part of the staircase, creating an welcoming entrance to the upper level.
With all rooms created we could move on to boarding out and plastering the walls and ceilings.
Underfloor heating was installed throughout the upper level. This was then covered with Correx, which is a protection for flooring.
