Thinking of buying a house, it has a bay window going all the way to
the roof (i.e. ground floor and first floor) and it has a pitched
roof joiined with the main roof, i.e. not flat roof.
The bay window is currently made of plastic and looks to be about 20
or more years old and looks decrepid. If I buy the house, I'm
thinking of having a new bay front built from bricks or blocks (house
is construced with coursed stone - or possibly rubbled stone but I
think it is coursed).
So I'd need a foundation built and then have to decide on the method
Does anyone know how much this would cost in South Wales?
What are my options for method of construction, would there be an
inner and outer skin with insulation in between, or would the nature
of a bay window (narrow pillars) mean that double skin/insulation
would not be possible?
I suppose building it in the traditional way with stone and sand stone
would be the most expensive method. (the house would not be worth this
sort of expense on appearance.)
Looking forward to your replies...
