These pictures look so good they must be stock photos? Well, they’re not. You’re looking at actual work we have completed. No stock photos. Just glorious pictures of our work commissioned by the project architects Scarratt and Martyn .

We provide a wide range of building and contracting services in West Devon and surrounding areas working with private individuals and architect led projects.

Family run with many loyal, fully qualified and multi-skilled staff we are committed to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction – much of our business comes from the recommendation of our existing clients or their architects. As one of our recent repeat clients reminded us, “you like a challenge and you like different – that’s what you’re good at!”.

General Building, Roofs and Landscaping

Not everything is a ‘project’, sometimes you just need something doing or fixing.

But let us start by saying this – we understand granite. Our forebears have balanced and broken (and sometimes bodged) granite into the landscape that today defines Devon be it a boundary wall, a barn or the back of your house. It isn’t always the easiest of materials but we know it and can help you live with it and love it.

Bricks, blocks, concrete and plaster all come quite easily after granite so our team are happy (sometimes grateful) to find themselves building a block and render wall between urban gardens, refurbishing a valley-gutter on an Edwardian property or floating a replacement parking apron and being Devon it is of course, across a slope.

And yes, we do fit new kitchens and bathrooms including doing all the decorating and electrical and plumbing and heating and tiling work. We make it happen.

Barn Conversions

Working in Devon, especially around Tavistock and Yelverton and up on the Moor,  we know that local materials and age-old building methods can be a challenge but we take this in our stride and our staff have all the necessary skills. And we’re equally happy taking on new technologies whether it is an unusual insulation-technology or a challenging ground-source-heating installation.

But we also undertake modern additions and new-builds – we can cover the whole gamut of building styles and technologies. We have also undertaken many significant extensions & conversions in the Dartmoor National Park area and pride ourselves in having excellent product knowledge, understanding of local building traditions and a solid reputation for quality workmanship.

Extensions and Remodelling

Changing what you have already is often the most practical option. Adding a couple of rooms, putting a staircase where there wasn’t one before, putting a few feet onto an existing room to allow the design you want space to breath or sometimes completely re-purposing a space but retaining the existing footprint and protecting special features.

Small changes can make surprisingly large improvements when properly done.

And if you’re not adding whole chunks of house, we can refurbish your kitchen or bathroom or en-suite providing the building, tiling, electrical and plumbing services to ensure that the project is managed to a successful conclusion and meets with your expectations.

Our experience in the business means we have the right contacts that can provide bespoke-build kitchens or off-the-shelf designs to suit your pocket.

We take your ideas and make them happen. Working with you we bring in our team that you need to turn your ideas, drawings and visualisations into reality, get the people on site and finish the project.
