An orangery in Didcot. Part 3: completed and decorated.
As promised in a previous blog-post, here are some pictures of the completed extension in Didcot that was built by Admiral Windows of Oxford.
Because the doors between the house and the new orangery were to be removed, all works were carried out under a formal building notice, with the council’s building inspectors approving each step.
Foundations: the clay soil was dug to a depth of 5 feet.
Roof: Eurocell Lusso orangery roof, fitted with Pilkington Activ Blue glazing. Lusso has a larger glazed area than a ‘lantern’ style orangery roof, allowing more light into the adjoining kitchen.
Walls: full-height brick and block.
Windows: Duraflex PVCu with opening top lights.
Doors: Duraflex PVCu bi-folding doors (3 leaf).
Glazing: A-rated glazing was used throughout.
Lighting: internal pelmet contains down-lighters.
Many thanks to our customer for allowing us to take these pictures, and we hope that the new extension will be enjoyed by the family for years to come.
