Identification Which type of TruSteel is this house?
Thank you for the website and detailed articles, they are extremely helpful. I am looking to purchase a property and upon viewing was advised it is a Steel Frame construction. Enquiring further, the Estate Agent advised it is a 'TruSteel' construction house, but neither they or the sellers are able to advise which type it is (3M or MKII). They have advised they think it was constructed in/around 1966, which would put it around the cutover date I've seen on yours and other websites for the MKII and 3M type. So far, they have not been able to provide a photo of the roof structure which should help to identify it.
Please could you assist with identifyign which house type it is and any other details about it from your knowledge and records?
The postcode of the property is TA1 4JF. I have also attached 3x photos of the property to help aid identification:
Something I found confusing was when looking at your website, the same house is pictured on both MKII and 3M TruSteel pages that looked similar to the one I am enquiring on:
- Trusteel MKII Steel Framed House - Non-Standard House Construction - Information & Resource Centre (nonstandardhouse.com)
- Trusteel 3M - Steel Framed House - Non-Standard House Construction - Information & Resource Centre (nonstandardhouse.com)
Both pages display the same house (see below image) in the pictures, however it is labelled '3M' on the TruSteel 3M page...
Thanks in advance for your time and let me know if I can provide any further info.
