Remarkable Renovations features Durisol ICF
Episode two of George Clark’s Remarkable Renovations features a Staffordshire couple, Adrian and Laura, who transformed a derelict 19th-century coach house into a multigenerational home. Airing on TV this week, the programme follows their progress as they renovate their 18th Century coach house and create a new adjoining two-bedroom annex for Adrian’s parents.
Adrian and Laura chose Durisol ICF as the structural material to replace the demolished barn, which became their kitchen, and build the single-storey annex, attached to the main house by a glazed walkway.
The Durisol part of the build was initially undertaken by local builders but when the budget began to dwindle Adrian took it on himself. The simplicity of the Durisol build method made this possible, enabling the family to make cost savings while continuing with the build.
Adrian comments: “The blocks were fantastic to build with and ticked so many boxes for us. I think the whole family laid at least part of the walls including the kids! Such a great way to build well insulated, solid walls that come together really quickly. Highly recommended.”
The Durisol annex was finished with cedar wood cladding and the original bricks from the demolished barn to create this stunning new home.
