Beach Hut Extension – Mersea Island


Mersea Island, near Colchester, Essex has wonderful south facing beaches and stunning scenery overlooking the Blackwater Estuary.  Ten Hut were asked to look into a beach hut that had been built smaller than the allowable 3.6m and following our advice were asked to extend it to maximise the available space.

As well as maintaining the structural integrity we looked to ensure that the beach hut was secure and decorated to protect this family get-away for years to come.

The roof and sides were extended in keeping with the original structure, and care was taken to make the extension blend seamlessly.  Storage areas were reconfigured and kitchen units were added so that the family could enjoy their time at the hut.

New decking was added to the front of the beech hut to provide a stable platform.  This was a great project from start to finish and the team completed it to their usual high standards.
