This is a new 'Manager's House for a Golf Club in the West Midlands.
The house is built of traditional cavity wall construction and has been built to a very high standard of workmanship.
One of the many interesting features is the construction of the roof over the main Living and Dining Areas. (The single storey part of the building)

 

It has been constructed using purpose built timber trusses manufactyred in clear douglas fir and the trusses are open and integral with the Living Areas.
There is also a 'double' aspect gas fire which serves both the Living Area and the Ding Area.  The fire was a 'Boley' fireplace supplied and installed by Modus Design.
The facing bricks are Ibstock 'Red rustic' laid and pointed with coloured mortar in black and with feature 'chamfered' bricks to all window cills. There is also a featured 'corbelled' eaves detail with no need for a timber facia.  The roof is covered with Redland 'Grampian' interlocking tiles in slate grey colour.

All of the photographs were taken during construction in May 2003
