This week, the cladding has started going up. We’ve gone with a cedar cladding with modern, sleek lines covering the top half of the front of the house, to add a bit more detail and break up large sections of white render.
If you look closely, you’ll also see that we’ve started lining the inside of the entrance area either side of the glazing. We’re using Stucanet, which is a metal mesh (lath) attached to timber battens. This can then be rendered over in the same way as the block work without having to use any special techniques.
Using Stucanet means we don’t have to have thick block work which would take up a lot of space in our entrance area.
