If COVID has taught us one thing, it’s that our homes are indeed still our castles. But lockdown living has also shown us that our living spaces need to adapt for all sorts of purposes. Even when lockdown eases, many of us will continue to work from home. Over the past twelve months, in and out of lockdown, others have seen the benefits of dedicated workout spaces and outside entertaining areas. As a result, we’ve noticed that more and more enquiries are from people extending or altering their homes to suit a new sort of lifestyle. Of course, before you can begin any building project in your Sussex home, you need to complete some groundworks preparation.
Groundworks preparation for Sussex extensions and alterations:
At Timberley, we’re here to guide you through the groundworks preparation for your Sussex building project. We can help you ensure your home spaces are more suitable for your lifestyle. Whether you’re planning an extension to accommodate an elderly family member, an outside studio for your home office or gym, or a beautifully landscaped area in your garden for entertaining, we can help get you started.
A clean slate:
Any building or landscaping project needs careful groundworks preparation, and we can help you begin with a clean slate. Talk to us about clearing your building site. We have the workforce and machinery to ensure this process is fast and efficient, allowing you to move on to the exciting next steps.
Getting the foundations right:
Foundations are one of the most important elements of any building project! The strength of a building lies in its foundation. The primary purpose of the foundation is to hold the structure above it and keep it upright! Even if you’ve ordered a pre-fabricated garden cabin for your home office or gym, you need to prepare the surface properly it’s going to sit upon. And that’s where we come in.
Finally, if you’re installing a pergola or similar to your outside entertaining area, we can help ensure it stands the test of time!
Drainage and service installation:
Your extension, outside garden room or your landscaped entertaining area will all need power, water and telecommunications. Which means they all require trenchwork.
Similarly, they’ll all need good drainage solutions. Giving drainage the thought and consideration it deserves as part of your groundworks preparations can save you from headaches and expense at a later date.
Groundworks at the end of your project:
Finally, although much of the work we complete will come at the start of your building project, we can also help with the finishing touches. If you’ve installed a garden cabin for your home office or gym at the bottom of the garden, we can save you from soggy hems with paved pathways similarly; or, if you’ve added an extension to your home, talk to us about dedicated driveways or access.
