For this new build project, we constructed the building in the old orchard, using the style of build and position of the property to take advantage of the beautiful views of the Derbyshire countryside. The masonry was done in the style of Flemish garden wall bond, to give an authentic overall appearance to blend in with neighbouring properties. We used a combination of Oak and Idigbo timber to achieve the desired timber appearance whilst being conscious of build costs. The internal space was finished to the clients specifications; we future-proofed the property by installing a ground floor wet room, wider door openings and low thresholds to turn this into the client's ideal home.Architect: Architect Creations.Special features: Large apex window.

For this job, we completed a full renovation of an existing barn, giving a derelict building a new lease of life. We working closely with the architects and clients to maintain the structure and external features of the building, whilst also making it a cosy, modern living space. The materials and installations included timber windows, solid timber external doors, underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, wooden floors and an oak staircase with stainless steel balustrade and external oak cladding. Externally, we re-landscaped the space to create a patio and grassed area, all on different levels. Finally, we re-shaped and re-laid a shared access driveway which involved building a new double garage.
