Ideal opportunity to have the house of your dreams. A lot of the hard work has been done. This project needs finishing. This lovely site facing out to the Atlantic and being just a short distance to the village. Works that have have done are: Extensive digger work. Improve the drainage and build up ventilated floor. • Lowered the floor level in the cottage to down to bedrock level (ca 1 to 2 foot deep). • Filled in with gravel. • Fitted underfloor pipes for ventilation along the outer walls to keep the walls dry. • Lowered ground level around the cottage • Dug drains and man-holes • Fitted heavy drain pipe and filled with gravel. • Made soakage 20 meter away from the house • Made area around the cottage ready for landscaping Water supply • Sunk well (50 meters deep) • Fitted percolation system for sewer tank. Electricity • Moved ESB pole out of view and installed underground cable for mains from the pole to the house. (no connecting wires visible) • Installed ESB box and meter. • Stripped all the old wiring Structural work roof • Took off roof and installed a ‘state of the art’ roof with external insulation (warm roof) with 100 mm insulation and room for an extra 50mm on the inside. • Added three fully insulated dormers (100 mm all around). • Installed three dormer windows with stainless steel mechanics and 4 separate double-glazed sections (not fakes with plastic inserts). • Replaced the Atlantic facing gable with roof supporting steel frames (80mm box sections extra heavy to withstand the western gales) • Added aluminium profiles to steel frames to hold tailor-made double-glazed windows (extra wide gap for noise control. German system used for professional shop fronts) • Roofed with natural slates.
