The insulation is now being fitted to the external walls ready for the application of the through colour white render. Even though this is just the insulation already we can see just how much of an impact the colour change combined with the cedar cladding is going to make.

All the external structures and cladding are now in place and the rendering has begun on the garage. The main house is having an insulated rendering system to the existing facade due to having a mixture of timber and masonry constructions on the wall. Because timber and masonry move differently you cannot render onto them both without an unsightly expansion gap, so the insulation creates a common background to remove the need for expansion gaps on the facade. The internals are also progressing with the addition of the plasterboards and metail stud framing as we start to put the internals back together again.

The contemporary entrance canopy structure is now complete and is being stained. The cedar cladding has now been applied to the battens on the existing brickwork walls and the black sections have had there first coat of several black stain layers. The next stage is the white through colour render.
