The Capel Building Project Series #7 – Walls & Roof Assembly

The Capel Building Project series follows the renovation and extension of an unusual property designed by architect Michael Newberry in Surrey.

Carpenter and Builder Robin Clevett is taking the first glass and steel house in the UK which was built in 1957 and extending it and refurbishing it, including the addition of a pool house, while paying homage to its original design values.

The building was revolutionary at the time it was constructed when similar structures had been built across parts of California but they’d never been done in the UK.

In this building project series Robin talks through the challenges of this unique project and shares his top tips, techniques and tricks of the trade.
