Case Studies

Double Extension


Karl James constructed this large double extension, creating extra space at the rear and side of the house. Photos show before and after.

Landscape Work


We completed extensive landscaping work to this client's garden. Includes an ornamental pond with water feature and decorative paving. We also knocked down the old wooden shed and rebuilt a new shed with reclaimed bricks.

See photos for before and after.




Karl James designed and built this modern kitchen diner extension. Includes roof lights, contemporary breakfast bar with adjoining seating area and an exposed brick wall, providing a traditional yet contemporary feel. 


Side Garage Extension


Karl James demolished a small porch area at the side of this house, allowing us to construct a large new garage, making far better use of the space.

Side Extension


Karl James unertook this large project in the Blackrod area, consisting of a new side extension, landscaping work, and a fitted kitchen.

Pitched Roof


Karl James constructed a new pitched roof on the extension of this propert, replacing an old flat roof which had started to leak. The client decided to also renovate the extension at the same time to create a wider living space. Photos show before and after of the roof.
