Timber-framed farmhouse extension, Côtes-d’Armor

Timber-framed farmhouse extension, Côtes-d’Armor

We worked from an architect’s drawings to construct these twin timber-framed farmhouse extensions. The clients wanted to extend their 200m² home near Mont Contour to create more kitchen and bedroom space, and make the most of the garden at the back of the building. This was primarily achieved by adding large glass sliding doors to the ground floor and two large balcony areas to the first floor bedrooms.

Timber-framed farmhouse extension: The work involved

The works included digging out the foundations, drainage, cutting the timber frame sections according to the architect’s drawings, installing the timber frames and connecting the new extensions to the rest of the existing property.

We also carried out internal works in the property such as insulation and plaster boarding, reconstruction of floor levels and staircase installation, and oversaw the design and installation of all windows and doors.
