Two walls were to be removed, which required a pair of steels beams, one to be supported off the other.

A fiddly job given the space restrictions!

Steel posts were also required. Due to the point loading, these had to be on new pad foundations, one of which was in the middle of the existing house.

A subtle green/grey finish to the hardwood goes well with the light paving.
