Our Elevated Boathouse deck on Grand Designs TV Show

We built the Elevated Boathouse Deck a few years ago so it was great to see it on this weeks Grand Designs programme. Standing proud next to a very contempory new build on the neighbouring plot.

This waterfront property in Sonning is a brand new, mock Georgian boathouse. The brief here was to run the deck across the front of the property and out over the inlet, creating a dry area for a slipper launch to be moored. The underside of the deck had a secondary sloping roof to take away any rain that came from the deck out to one side to keep the boat dry.

Decking timber: Balau & Western Red Cedar

Fairmile Properties: “QTD built this sizeable platform which extended over the water inlet so that the celebrity singer could enjoy the river views whilst providing a shelter for their boat beneath. This project was executed professionally with minimum disruption for the client”
