this house extension design as the house architect and
the house extension building work as the house builder. The house extension
project involves a ground floor house extension which creates an open
family, dining and kitchen area with a level external deck for the
owner, who need to move around in wheelchair. The house extension
of timber frame brick veneer construction. The cathedral
ceiling was achieved with a steel portal frame at the end of the
extension and a laminated beam that spans between the existing house
roof structure and the portal frame. The verandah over the deck
follows the same roof pitch of the extension.
HOUSE EXTENSION CONSTRUCTION
original house was of timber floor structure, full brick wall
construction. The ground floor extension repeats the
same floor construction, ie. timber floor structure with timber strip flooring。 The roof
construction was timber roof rafters with terracotta roof tiles.
Internally, the finish were timber strip flooring,
painted plasterboard wall lining and painted ceiling lining， which follows
the roof slope. The kitchen area was fitted with a half glazed
roof which was a continuation of the kitchen window。 This helps
to bring in a lot of sunlight into the space and make the kitchen area
a bright and pleasant place to be in.
As the site sloped towards the rear and the new deck needed to be at
the same level as the new house extension family room, a new timber
stair needs to be built to link the new deck to the rear yard.
The ground floor house extension was completed successfully.
