Beech Drive is complete and the for sales signs are up!
The foundations and block work was started in December 2017 and now as you can see December 2018, the houses are complete and ready for their first owners.
We have battled with all weather conditions on this build, we had the awful wet winter making ground conditions extremely difficult and slower moving for our excellent ground workers, Chris Davies and his gang, and then as we came out of the other side of winter we got hit with the snow in March.
The block layers were in full swing at this point and had to pull off site, its almost impossible to lay blocks in the snow, not just from the practicality side of things but if you are to lay blocks in the snow the mortar will freeze. If this happens it will effect the integrity of the build as it will not be as weather resistant or watertight which obviously is extremely important.
We had a slight break from the elements after the snow which was nice for everyone involved in the build to get a bit of sunshine at this point, until the summer came… you would think that the super hot summer we had this year would have helped move things along. In fact, at many times over the summer it was too hot and sunny for the renderers to render the outside of our houses, the render would dry too quickly and crack, again something we do not want to happen. We had the same hold up with the painters, it was drying too quickly so we had to leave the outsides until the weather cooled down.
December 2018 and the houses are completed and all trades have now left site. All of us at Greendale Living are extremely pleased with the way these three detached houses have turned out, and we simply could not have done it without the superb team working for us on the ground as well as the help from all of our suppliers all of who we say thank you to and wish an extremely Merry Christmas and a well deserved break!
