What We Do

New Builds

We can provide a complete package to construct a new build home. We are happy working alongside clients and architects to create a uniform bond during the project, through until its end.


House renovation projects breath new life into tired homes. We have significant experience working with listed buildings and ones within Heritage and Conservation areas. We use building techniques that are sympathetic to the building.

Garden Rooms

We make beautiful, hand crafted modern garden rooms, garden offices, garden studios and insulated garden buildings for year round use.

Extending your existing home can often be the cheaper and less stressful option to moving. You can take the opportunity to shape it how you see fit and make the building work better for you! We will guide you every step of the way. We know some great architects who can help design the space, apply for planning permission and produce detailed plans.

All Plastering

We offer all aspects of plastering, whether that be repairs or a full wall/room replastered we have you covered!


We offer all types of conversions, whether it be a simple loft conversion or a much bigger job such as a full barn or church conversion; they are all services we provide.

All Roof Work

The roof is an integral part of a building and the first line of defense against harsh environmental catastrophes. Keeping your roof in good condition is ensuring your safety and peace of mind even in inclement weather.

Brick Work

In need of your old brickwork to be repointed and make it look as good as new? Or need a garden wall built up?

Block Paving

Nothing finishes a job off more than some fresh paving! A simple path or a whole new driveway, you cannot go wrong with either.
