Enhancing an original feature
A modern rear extension was added to the property using the same bricks as the original house but with a few upgrades
The client asked for some kind of period feature to go next to his dining table.
Making the best use of a small spaceIt’s amazing how much you can fit in when correctly planned, this hotel style bathroom in a bachelor pad really shows that well, should have seen it before lol
Working with acrylic
Acrylic is wonderful,all the upstands and countertops in this picture were spare off cuts that I glued together and carefully hand crafted what was needed,with no visible joins
Correctly discharging waste from your property
This creation discharged the waste from a kitchen,toilet and bathroom into the correct manhole with no smelly gasses
The rainwater from your roof and surface water from your patio has to go somewhere other than a manhole if possible as Thames water are struggling with the demands of an ever expanding population,where does it go I hear you ask…
Soak away pt 1
A soak away must be constructed to a size relative to the area to be drained and method of construction varies depending on soil conditions
Soak away pt2
For free draining soils I use a traditional mas fill and shelf method
Soak away. pt3
For badly draining soils a 1.5m3 soak away crate wrapped in geo textile must be used
Soak away. Pt4
Either way I like to top off with geotextile fabric situated 500mm below ground to allow the surface water to pass through freely and grass or plants can grow over the top yet the soak away remains solid
Soak away complete
When finished it is covered up it becomes invisible but you know that Ashworth construction has correctly discharged al of your kitchen waste and rainwater in accordance with the government laws and is built to last giving you piece of mind and no funny smells
Roof construction and covering
At Ashworth construction we can build you or recover your roof .Whether it be a simple lean to or complex pitched roof,rest assured you are in good hands.
Being a traditional builder that utilises both old and new technologies,Ashworth construction can provide an aesthetically pleasing and reliable roof that is watertight and breathable.We do favour the cold deck as opposed to a warm deck whereas the insulation is placed between and underneath the rafters as opposed to a warm deck whereas it is placed above the rafters and in some cases as above I use both working together using modern venting techniques.
A classic example of a warm deck during construction
Traditional roofing using modern technology
A traditional plain tile roof,except I use modern breathable membrane underneath and a breathable ridge and hip vent kit on top.Coupled with a modern eaves felt support system and a plastic maintenance free verge system, your roof is guaranteed to keep you dry while preventing degradation of your roof timbers from moisture/poor air circulation.
Eaves felt support system
Here you can see the eaves felt support system that I use on all of my pitched roofs,This ensures that even if there is a problem in the future such as a broken tile, then the water will roll off the roof into the gutter and not build up in the eaves and cause damp.Another example of modern techniques improving traditional building styles
planning/calcs/regs-I have a good working relationship with local architects,engineers and of course building control
Replace conservatory with masonary and insulation
Much stronger,warmer and better looking
simple loft conversion a great way to add room and value to your property
