some questions for folk that know about GAS...


We have boiler in the current kitchen. That kitchen is getting knocked down, and rebuild into a sunroom type living space. I want the boiler moved outside into the new garage. This (in my head) is a simple extension of pipes out around 6m.

The builder says the Gas Board will need to be contacted etc...

Why? I'm not home and Fee is useless at this type of stuff listening.....

cant remember the name of the colour, but it was mixed a bit after first coat to lighten it a bit.

Its quite a pale gray, but once all walls are done it richens up

building work is due to start in a week or so...



The kitchen extension layout wont be exactly like that internally, and the garage details have changed with new trusses rather that steel ridge beam.

New Kitchen space will be 9.3m x 3.3/3.4m. Kitchen on far wall, with island in the middle. Bottom space will have a corner sofa and TV somewhere... with bifolding doors on bottom and side walls (L Shape 2.7m x 3.6m)

The garage will be 6.2m wide, 6.7m long with 3.8m peak height. Units on back wall with the large double doors to garden. Lift on left side.

Black and white porcelain tiles, red gloss units, dark work top

Kitchen will be gloss white units, oak worktop, solid wood floors, underfloor (piped) heating


a bit like these

Ace work, with regars the gas, I don't see why it would need the gas board to come unless it is due to the pipe exiting the property then into another building.

re-design of trusses and raised peak.... side wall height remains but useable ceiling height (2/3rds of garage width) increased to 3.3m

6m roller door

length increased to >7m

It 'feels' pretty big when just standing in the foundations LOL.

Founds are laid, and block work up to DPC/Floor level, back filled and ready for poured floor

Kitchen...

What used to be dining room and kitchen (kitchen was in an extension... thats gone in these pics... )

Steel beams added, chimney brest gable wall knocked through... bi folding doors yadda yadda.

Kitchen will be in the back bit, with living area in the outer glass bitty







Ordered some skirting... hated this as always preferred to keep it perios and use exiting or salvaged. BUT the room is too big to use what I do have, and the local salvage place has shutdown.

Went for some 'Victorian' mid height (200mm)... thats a little smaller than the norm for the house but isnt tiny like a new build Matched the facings/architraves but would have preferred them a little wider (100mm)





Garage..

Demolished old 1.5 and build wider, longer and taller

starting to take shape... few things I'll hold judgement on 'till its a bit more complete. i.e its never good to see things part done






floor will be up flush with the Bi-Folding door's threshold. Underfloor heating / insulation under the concrete floor off 3 way system (floor, heating, water).

'Engineered' wooden floor to be laid - wide boards... cant remember the wood type/finish Oak i think

Some thoughts on the above....

Not 'keen' on the way the pillar is looking to be finished :/

I Beams above door - should there be insulation in the voids? I know heat transfers through metal a fair bit.... but... er.. I dunno. I would have expected something in the I
