The journey towards completing this timber framed new build home began by visiting the Grand Designs Live exhibition at the NEC to meet potential key suppliers to help bring their dream home to life. After collecting one of our brochures the homeowners requested a quotation off plan to ensure that our products would fall within their budget. With a clear view of our prices the homeowners made the journey to our Flagship showroom in Leeds to learn more about our products and services.
The bespoke glazing within any project is always a high-ticket item so for peace of mind the homeowners also took a tour of our World Class manufacturing facility to see where all our products are made and to gain a real insight into the size, scale & quality of our operation.
When carrying out a large-scale project such as this it is not uncommon for plans and ideas to change. Likewise, several options and quotations were sent as ideas were discussed before the final decisions were made and we set about manufacturing the products required for this high specification new build.
Now complete the properties outer layer is made up of red brick, composite cladding & sleek render to give depth & distinction to this modern home. The external elevations and rooms also benefit from a mixture of our leading products all carefully selected to suit the usage requirement in each interior space.
Panoramic sliding doors have been installed on the ground floor with the minimal framework perfectly suited to the contemporary interior space. The slim sightlines of our sliding doors create a clear connection with the garden that gives a real LA feel to this open plan home. Lift and slide patio doors have been used above ground floor. Installed into a more exposed location the lift and slide doors are perfectly suited to extreme weather, the ability to lock the doors in an open position is perfect for allowing ventilation and fresh air into the bedroom space.
Fixed picture windows, bespoke shaped windows, and our slender Scenic casement windows have also been installed throughout. Full height glazing has been utilised right through the property. The front elevation benefits from large format windows, while the rear elevation is dominated by glass with several shaped windows acting as feature products whilst perfectly complementing the contemporary house design.
Internally the house is expansive and bright with all rooms benefiting from the masses of natural light that can be gained from our slim framed products. This project is a great example of the benefits of working with Express. We provided all the glazing throughout, and our product portfolio allowed the homeowners and architect to choose specific products for each room within the house. Our expertise ensured that despite a mix and match approach to product selection the whole installation ran seamlessly with a stunning cohesive look throughout the home front to back and inside to out.
