Work House Deck

Sean Stack - Louka Fine Finish

Hi everyone,

work house deck 1

I thought that some of you would be interested to see a design that I came up with for a potential client – it’s a rather exciting “Work House Deck” which will be situated in Mid Wales.

 

As you can see, it’s not your usual sort of project; working on the unusual, bespoke and contemporary is what we do best.

Here are the design features in brief:

● Bespoke helical staircase has solid Oak treads
● Steps down lead to new outside dining area
● Helical staircase will lead down to an Italian-style pizza oven
● Nautical styled hand rails feature
● The building is designed to complement the rolling hills and countryside that it surrounds

The lovely people who we have prepared these drawings for have given very positive feedback so far so I’m hopeful that if it turns into a project that they will give their permission for me to feature it on my blog.

In this case, I will be able to keep you up to date with the design and build stages from start to finish!

It’s been an exciting time lately at Louka Fine Finish; we have a lot of projects on the go and the Barn Conversion that I told you about at the start of the month is now at design drawing stage.

Although I obviously can’t be too specific, my clients have agreed that I can share some of the drawings we have prepared for the project to give you an idea of what we are building.

As you can see, the drawings give the client a real feel for their project – this is always something that we make sure we do when taking on any new build or renovation. We work with people to realise their vision – in short, we design AND build.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject so feel free to chat to me on @loukafinefinish about any project that you have in mind.

 

In the meantime, have a great week and I look forward to bringing you my next update!

I believe that the client is everything. Now, I know that sounds a little bit cheesy, but it’s true.

 

Buildings should be a joint collaboration of vision and people should be able to work with their chosen main contractor from design stage and stay as little – or as heavily – involved with the process as they like until the build has ended.

 

With this in mind, I always make sure that I take time to get to understand our client’s requirements thoroughly and get a clear outline of what they want. It goes without saying that people would like to see their ideas come to life a little before a project starts; after all, who can really “see” properly from architects plans alone?

 

We work with our clients gain a true insight into their project right from the start and work with CAD and 3D models, as well as just putting pen to paper.

 

I am very excited about our latest Barn Conversion project and will be posting some of our design work right here on our site so keep your eyes peeled!

 

In the meantime, have a fabulous week and enjoy the sunshine – let’s hope it stays in place for some time yet!
