Week 10:Week 10_450

The stair structure has been constructed in situ.  The plywood carcass will be finished with walnut treads and white painted risers.  The concept behind the design of the stairs is to create a staircase that is subtly carved out of this corner of the entrance space so as to emphasise that in moving from ground to first floor, you are moving from the more open living spaces to the more private quiet spaces at 1st floor.

Timber Frame Dwelling Upgrade, Wicklow – Week 9

Week 9:Week 09_450

This week saw the installation of the mechanical heat recovery ventilation system. Installing this system will mean that the rate of air change within the dwelling will be fully controlled at all time.  The principal of the heat recovery’ ventilation system is quite simple.  The system brings fresh filtered air into the dwelling and evenly distributes it throughout the rooms of the house whilst at the same time extracting the not-so-fresh air.  However, prior to the not-so-fresh air being extracted, the system takes the heat from this air and uses it to heat the fresh filtered air coming into the dwelling, thus maintaining a constant heat within the house and reducing heat loss dramatically.

Internally the plaster slabs are being installed.  Once this is complete, the electrical and mechanical second fix and the finishes generally can begin.
