This week has been partially spent pulling together a second application for an established client in Dorset and designing a swimming pool and outside kitchen for clients in Devon. There is a trend for this new way of entertaining, more sophisticated than a BBQ or pizza oven, with a proper separate building providing shade and preparation space adjacent to the pool for those endless hot days which are a consequence of global warming.
These images show a secondary chimney stack which is redundant (too close to the thatch) which has been leaking for decades with rainwater tainted by sulphates permeating the house and causing the finishes to fail. We are raising one stack on the main house, reducing the other and capping it off. Extreme ends of the spectrum, but all in a weeks work.
