Rip out, Rebuild and Reigate continued

Following on from my previous Reigate post, I was asked to remove the structure (as seen in photos) to create more space in this loft room, I was unsure as to whether or not this was possible before removing the boxing in but as soon as i removed it I was pretty sure that it was structural and therefore should be covered back up.

There was a purlin set into the wall and running the length of the skeiling with struts on the far end for support, this was clearly here to stop the skeiling sagging from the weight of the roof, so with consultancy from a builder the decision was made to cover it back up.

This was done with a double skin of plasterboard which was cut to size, fixed, joint taped, skimmed and decorated, the rest of the room was redecorated using Dulux Trade Diamond matt emulsion for durability and a feature wall was lined and wallpapered.

The Ensuite Bathroom was decorated to match the connected Master Bedroom and tie in with the green tiles in Mylands Marble matt Brompton Road with ceilings in Dulux Diamond matt for moisture resistance and woodwork in Caporol waterbased satinwood.
