We’ve had a makeover! Have a look at our new design – same great content as always, with a fresh new face. Tell us what you think, and why not share it with a friend?

This month we’re showing you the progress of our extension at Prospect – modern in a clean, streamlined style and Maylands, modern in a beautiful traditional style.

Want to know how you can have WOW bathrooms without busting the budget? Check out Part 2 of our blog “Luxury Bathroom Designs on a Budget”.

Prospect Before – if your rear end looks like this, give us a call!




Prospect – you can see why we’re here!

The story begins in our first video





Continuing in video 2, this is shaping up to be a seriously beautiful building.





This project is moving unstoppably forward. So quickly, we can’t keep up with the filming! Here’s what it looked like at brickwork stage. The kitchen’s in now, the wet areas are complete and we’re ready for handover, so keep watching this space.





Maylands – the video diary

Do you want a very up to date extension that also honours the traditional style of your villa or bungalow?





Watch the video diary of Maylands to see this beautiful project from start to finish to see how we do it.





Here’s video 1 so you can see how we’ll solve this difficult layout. Have a look at the “Before” images in the video to get the full picture.





In video 2 you’ll see our team has cut through the back of the house. Look scary? Not to us – we do it all the time!





A lot’s happened now! Watch video 3 to see the brickwork up and the roof on.





Cyprus pine floors are being laid in video 4. Kitchen next – traditional style with modern features – large island unit with stone top – just one of the great features.





Keep watching this space – a full set of Before and After images coming soon.

We’ll be adding to it over the coming months, but for now, here’s the latest page:

If you’ve already got plans, we’d love to see them. You can email them to us and we’ll have a look at them and give you a call to chat about the estimated cost of building from your plans, and how we’ll move forward.
