View across new roof over converted garage. The boundary wall is shared with the neighbour, as the garage structure is joined to a garage on the neighbouring plots. The boundary wall has been raised as part of these works to facilitate the new raised roof, forming a parapet to enable adequate waterproofing to the roof of the neighbouring garage. All works at this junction are in accordance with the party wall agreement established on this development.

Existing outbuilding is being opened up to receive the new link to the existing dwelling through the new rear extension. The works to the cavity wall are at various stages on this view, with part of the wall just taken to DPC level.
Detail of cavity wall built up at corner junction. Concrete block has been used below ground level, on the outer leaf engineering brick has been used from 150mm below ground level up to DPC level, and then matching facing brickwork is used from DPC level upwards.
Level changes to the converted garage. Hoarding and strutting in place for the new reinforced retaining walls, which have just been poured. Original roof is still in place to provide cover over the ground works at this stage.
