Last week we talked about the new series of My Flat Pack Home, one of the episodes featured a flat pack extension by Buildings for the Future who have developed a flat pack extension system called Rapyd Rooms.
The Rapyd Rooms system offers a genuine alternative to other forms of home extension such as loft conversions, conservatories and brick extensions, the Rapyd Rooms website says the benefits include:
- At least 30% reduced cost – compared to traditional built extensions
- Speedy installation – days not weeks (5x faster than traditional built extensions)
- Significantly less mess – using pioneering foundation techniques (no wet trades required)
- Eco-friendly and sustainable – designed to meet green guide recommendations
The photos below showcase two recent builds the one is a garage conversion which was also extended by 3 m at the back.
The original brick left wall of the garage was highly insulated on the outside and varnished and the right wall was insulated from the inside and painted white to give the studio a rustic but also modern look as the client is a young graphic designer who wanted his office at home to be near his family who grew recently. The existing foundation were reinforced with steel beams which we installed on both sides of the garage to support the 2nd storey extension which will be built end of 2012 or early 2013
The other project was featured in the My Flat Pack Home programme; the couple needed extra kitchen space that was modern and trendy to be able to entertain friends and family with comfort and ease. The walls and roof are from flat packed panels which were erected in 2 days.
Rapyd Rooms have a nifty website which is well worth a visit www.rapyd.co.uk
