Choosing the Stained Glass and Making an Entrance

The past few weeks at the chapel have seen many changes take place. The plastering is almost complete and as a result the interior is now looking amazing. Outside the ground work is underway and the brick walls making up bin enclosure has been finished. Today, Shelagh Davies came with her assistant, Barrie, to measure…

Another Brick in the Wall

There is a lot of work happening inside the chapel but, as you may have noticed, the exterior is also getting a lot of attention now. More of the aluminium cladding has been fitted, the ground works are underway and the brick enclosure at the front of the building is well on its way to…

We can see at last!

With the days being a little gloomy recently we decided it was a good to time to start thinking about the lighting. This has been a tricky task as you never really know how much light you may need, but it is rather expensive so getting too much in would be wasteful. As a basic…

Bubblegum flavoured concrete anyone?

Now-a-days, construction companies are using scented form release agents to impart a pleasant smell in concrete, the most famous being bubble gum. We didn’t opt for this however. But now that the first floor is in place, it’s time to concrete it. Downstairs we have a beam and block combination and in order to duplicate…

The Stages

As with any design, you’re constantly developing your ideas to create something that is unique, which inevitably will have a story behind it. Initially the design of the 1st floor was a lot more basic, but using design software we were able to see in advance how it would look. With that we could change the design before…

Stairway to…

Take a journey and see what we see. Imagine walking in through the large chapel doors, being greeted by beautiful wooden flooring throughout. To the right you see a staircase, you just have to see what it leads to so you start to walk up …     Do you see it now?
