Removal of weight bearing wall to form open plan kitchen (West Heath)

This project involved the removal of a weight bearing wall to form a new open plan kitchen with the dining room.

The removal of weight bearing wall requires building regulations approval and inspection. This was sought and approved. The cost for a building notice application and inspection was £160.00. This is essential because should you wish to sell your home in the future, you will need to provide evidence that permission was sought and approved by building control to carry out the work.

Using Acro Props we provided support to the first floor ceiling joists and wall.

A new 8″x2″ primed steel beam on padstones was installed.

New plasterboard and plastering was carried out to make good.

We also carried out:

Installation of new radiator
New skirting boards (installed after floor was completed *not illustrated)
Kitchen area was taken back to brickwork and new plasterboard and plastering was carried out.
