A building designed for you

Subject to planning permission and building control approval, we work with you to design your ideal building that incorporates all the features you require, from the interior layout, the placement of doors and windows, right through to the exterior finish.

We know how important it is to design an attractive carriage house that conforms to planning requirements and is sympathetic to the existing property.  We will ensure that your timber carriage house sits comfortably alongside your property and complements its style, whether traditional, modern, or contemporary.  We can even guide you through your planning application.

We build and erect your carriage house ready for insulation and internal fit out by others.  Here is a good example of what can be achieved inside when your carriage barn is built:
