manly project update


The rear of the building has been demolished making way for a new two storey element to lock into the existing federation cottage. All the bricks from site have been retained to use for the garden retaining walls and a wall backing the kitchen. This wall will become a feature wall that will be back lit behind the clear glass splash back.


The slab has been poured. The final product is a polished concrete slab, so special attention was required to ensure no cracking during the curing of the concrete.


Luckily we had a bit of wet weather to assist with the curing. Set down above is where the new bi-folding doors will be located and new decking fame on the lower slab edge. The external should meet with the internal floor level.

Here is a sample grinding of the slab to show the client.
