'Trust is just one of the things we do well'

We have over 15 years’ experience of providing excellent renovations and new builds.

Our family run firm now focuses on high quality new builds in the Bristol area.  As an inclusive Developer we work with and engage the communities we work within.   We are a small, bespoke business that focuses on build quality, trust and professionalism using only the best quality sub-contractors.    Our new builds are designed and built as if they were our own to exceptional quality.

What our New Home owners say

‘I am really grateful that you decided to sell to me.  Thank you for building such a beautiful home. Rest assured it will be well looked after and loved.’

What our neighbours say

‘I would like to say how impressed I have been throughout your build.  The way you have kept disruption to the absolute minimum.  Your communicating with the local inhabitants has helped kept us informed of what was happening…. Your site was kept tidy and well fenced off …. The design and build quality fits in well with the local houses’

‘The construction is nearing completion and it is evident, and has been expressed by several local residents, that the work has been carried out to a high standard’

‘We were kept appraised of their intentions from initial planning …. The site itself …. Was left tidy and secure at the end of each day’

4x1 bedroomed Apartments, Bristol

20/02/2017

From the exterior you would be forgiven for thinking this was a pair of semi-detached houses but in fact the property housed 4 spacious 1 bedroomed Apartments.  The design of natural stone and render was so successful, some passers-by often thought this development was a renovation rather than new a build. All properties were sold before the project was finished.  

It is important to the Directors of CHI Homes to build homes, not just buildings, that we would be happy for our families to live in.  We set ourselves apart from the large builder who provide standardised homes by designing additional features which just make day to day living that little bit more comfortable.   

Each Apartment was highly specified, built to exacting standards, each being sold with a parking space and cycle store.   The Ground Floor Apartments each had their own private garden.  All properties further benefitted from their own entrance ie their own front door and hallway opening outside.  It is popular for First Floor Apartments to have communal hallways meaning a lack of personal space for wet coats and that extra space to put your shopping when you are unloading the car.  We wanted to ensure that our home owners had a different experience, and had additional private hallway space, away from the main living area, so even the Top Floor Flats have their own front door and stairwell.   

We were also keen to ensure the Apartments were economical to run and so we added Heat Recovery Ventilation systems, extra insulation, triple glazing and low energy spot lights.   The MVHR system allows filtered fresh air in without heat loss, allowing the building to breath and remove moisture, dust and odours without losing heat.  

All Apartments had little added extras like highly specified doors, door handles, soft close kitchen doors, soft close toilet seats and integrated wine racks as standard as well as Induction Hobs.  We also fitted TV aerials and provided integrated Virgin Media cabling as well as USB plug sockets.   The kitchens were designed with plenty of work surface, corner units and extra height cabinets to utilise all available space as well as breakfast bars.  The bathrooms were highly specified with waterfall taps, large bathroom mirrors covering the entire wall and heated towel rails, all important when you are living in small space.  

The 2 Top Floor Apartments are south facing and benefitted from floor to ceiling picture windows making the lounge area feel light and spacious on any day of the year as well as  full-sized shower.  The Top Floor Apartments further benefitted from feature vaulted ceilings, polished aluminium braces and feature lights in the main living area. 

The Ground Floor Apartments were slightly larger with additional space to the rear of the lounge which featured an area of vaulted ceiling of 9ft with feature lighting, extending the lounge space to provide a spacious airy feel.  The patio doors from the lounge, provided access to the private garden.    Providing privacy to our buyers was important and so we designed the building in such a way that each garden was not overlooked.    In addition, we fully fenced each garden, providing lockable gates and full security lighting, making the gardens feel like an extension of the house.    

A thoroughly enjoyable project resulting in a set of happy home owners.

What did our neighbours say?

‘It is evident and has been expressed by several local residents, that the work has been carried out to a high standard … the exterior of the building has been designed to complement existing dwellings and does not stand out as a ‘new build’

‘The design and build quality fits in well with the local houses’

What did our new home owners say?

Thank you for building such a beautiful home, rest assured, it will be well looked after and loved’
