Complete building requirement solutions

 

We have experience in extending and altering houses for over 45 years, having completed projects ranging from small lean–to extensions to complete remodeling of properties, including adding additional stories to entire houses.

 

We have also completed numerous loft conversions to allow additional living space without encroaching into valuable garden areas, and conservatories and sunrooms to bring the outside in. To allow the extension to integrate with the existing building can sometimes require a structural opening to be formed. This is a process that we have successfully carried out on numerous occasions to enable an open plan feel.

 

Listed buildings can be more challenging to extend sympathetically but is something that we achieve on a regular basis. Using a mixture of traditional methods of craftsmanship with modern building standards to current regulations we have been able to increase the size and more importantly the ease of living in many listed homes. Our joinery shop is able to produce purpose made joinery to comply with conservation requirements and staircases to unique dimensions in all materials including oak. We have also been able to extend thatched cottages and listed timber framed houses with great success. Please view our portfolio of extensions
