Ground Designs

You’ve seen the first floor, now it’s time to have a look at our plans for the ground floor. Here is a more detailed look at the floor plan  ↓ Make sure you visit our blog regularly so you can be kept up to date on all things Chapel!

Roof Roof

The main Chapel roof is on, and in only one day! How you ask? By using Nulok roofing system! Firstly Nulok battens are fixed to the rafters in the conventional way, replacing traditional timber battens. Then specially designed Link Channels are snap fitted to the battens to form an interlocking grid system. And finally our slates are slotted…

What goes up…

Can’t come down.   One way of getting the slates up to the roof! Can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s all done, let’s hope we don’t get a sudden downpour of rain..  

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?

Planning Approved part 2…

We were so excited to receive our first planning approved document for our Chapel, which we received back in September 2014…… naturally, we didn’t expect to receive a 2nd one.. Unfortunately, our planning application had one very specific condition, the garage door opening had to be a whopping 5.4 meters wide. Why? to fit 2 cars…

What’s in the boxes Phil?

Phil arrives at the current office with a smile on his face, lets hope what’s inside the boxes will be just as fun to put in! In summer I keep heat out, In winter I block cold air – what am I?  

Spot the Difference

  What we hope the after picture looks like.. ↑ Using Autodesk Maya we can bring to life the vision we have for the Chapels future. We are in the process of building a second floor to take advantage of the high walls that the Chapel offers, the window shapes will be kept but the inside structure changed, a glass panel on the floor…

When a door closes a window opens

  There are so many different shapes and sizes of windows especially if you are looking for a contemporary design. So we asked David from Landmark Window Solutions to come to our office in Andover and inspire us! He brought with him the Rationel  sample discussing the fitting requirements for our exciting new adventure.  …

February

The back wall was taken down in January – before it fell down and we are now ready to rebuild. For the first time we have building materials on site, rather than the constant removal of rubbish to date. With scaffolding up for the roofers, this is the first time that the team has seen the Chapel…

The Team

Our team is growing as are the developments with the Chapel! Even with the English weather, we are pushing on to hopefully move in before Christmas and once again have our tree lit up outside as is tradition in Whitchurch.     Keep an eye out for more updates..

Early January

Early January brought a welcome relief from the rain, but it was bitterly cold. Phil constructed a ‘home inside the Chapel’ so he and the team could keep warm when they were having a cup of tea. Essential. Removing the render has made a huge impression on the building. Painstaking work, but really worthwhile. Work is continuing on…

December progress

Clearing the site has revealed the Chapel for the first time. The front roof slates have been removed an a tarpaulin is now keeping the front section relatively water tight. Turning our attention to the rear workshop, we notice with horror that the rear wall is badly compromised. It has been pushed over centre by…
