Grainger Timber Frames built a practical Timber Frame House with comfortable living space.
" We selected Grainger Timber Frames (GTF) to build a new house for us in 2016. Working with our architect, Brian at GTF helped us finalise the detailed layout and design to ensure practicality and efficiency. "
Timber Frame House
Grainger Builders were employed to undertake a major renovation to this property in 2012.
"I am absolutely delighted with the end result. The reliability and quality of their work is first class AND they turn up when they say they will! Altogether a very professional company who I have no hesitation in giving the highest recommendation."
Renovation & Extension
Grainger Builders were employed to form a tea rooms following the erection of a timber portal frame. This involved all internal finishing, a cedar shingle roof, kitchen, toilet, plumbing and electrics.
"The Thorp Perrow Estate has used Grainger Builders on several occasions. The most important work that they have done for us recently was the original construction and subsequent enlargement of the Thorp Perrow Tea Room."
Thorp Perrow Tea Rooms
Grainger Builders were employed to build a new first floor extension over an already existing office. The work commenced in January and tented scaffolding was erected to ensure no disruption to the building works during the harshest of the winter months.
"We are delighted with the finished product and visitors to our premises comment on the high standard of workmanship. Coming to work is now a joy."
This was a traditionally built house, complicated by the fact that it was on a sloping clay site. Some of the foundations were 2.4m deep to compensate for some huge Turkey Oaks which sap moisture from the ground.
"During construction, Brian Grainger personally was on site for the whole course of the contract. "
This traditional 3 bedroom bungalow was built on a site previously occupied by a 1940's bungalow which was past it's sell by date. The owner decided to demolish it and build a bungalow, to suit his needs - maintenance free.
Dormer Bungalow with Windows in Roof Space
Grainger Timber Frames were employed to construct this 4 bedroom house - double and single storey, 2nd build for the customer.
This large 4 bedroom house fits in well with the surrounding village properties. The facing bricks (Chatsworth Antique) were chosen to be more in keeping with reclaimed bricks. Grainger Builders were contracted to the project from dig to decorate.
Traditional Block and Brick Build
This very large timber frame bungalow was constructed on a concrete raft foundation. Over the years the site had been built up with brick rubble which meant a dig down to 1500mm to find good bearing ground.
The customer opted for timber frame because of the speed of build and low heating costs.
Large Timber Frame Bungalow
Grainger Builders constructed three bespoke timber frame log cabins, using spruce half round logs for the outer cladding. The project was completed from dig to decorating.
"Grainger Builders were employed to erect 3 log cabins. They started and completed on time, were very professional and well organised.
Brian has an excellent team and I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
