MODIFIED "A" FRAME - GOOLWA BEACH

 


THIS WAS AN EXISTING "A" FRAME STYLE HOUSE CONSTRUCTED FROM 200mm DIA. DIAGONALLY PLACED POLES THAT WERE VERY INTRUSIVE INTO THE LIVING AREAS AND THUS CREATING SOME VERY SMALL LIVING AREAS ON THE LOWER LEVEL AND TWO SMALL BEDROOMS ON THE UPPER LEVEL. APROXIMATELY 90% OF THE EXISTING FLOOR AREA WAS RETAINED BUT WITH SOME MAJOR INTERNAL RENOVATIONS. THE FRONT RAKING WALLS AND POLES WERE REMOVED AND NEW VERTICAL WALLS BUILT OVER SOME NEW FOOTINGS ALONG WITH THE NEW BALCONY AND POLES. THIS PROJECT REQUIRED SOME STRATEGICALLY PLACED INTERNAL WALLS AND BEAMS TO SUPPORT THE REMAINING POLE FRAME. THE BUILDING WAS ALSO EXTENDED TO ONE SIDE BY ABOUT 40%. LOOKING FROM THE SIDE VIEW, LEFT OF THE RAIN HEAD IS RECLADDED EXISTING BUILDING.
