General Building Work

Your General Building Experts

Stephen has over 45 years of experience in traditional and modern construction techniques. Hailing from a family of builders, he has worked on projects ranging from barn conversions and new builds to specialist cob restoration.

With his small team of skilled labourers, Stephen partners with trusted local contractors to provide complete services from start to finish on your project. This collaborative approach allows us to bring in specialised expertise as needed - including scaffolding, electrical, plumbing, joinery, metal fabrication, and engineering. We aim to source materials locally and sustainably whenever possible.

  • On-site consultancy and teaching of traditional skills

With Stephen's deep knowledge of traditional techniques and materials, we can restore, preserve and enhance the historic character of your property. We combine time-honored craftsmanship with modern innovations as appropriate. Our expertise ranges from minor repairs to complete renovations and custom additions.

As a Guild of Master Craftsmen member for over 10 years, Stephen assures quality workmanship and professionalism for every client. He is fully insured for projects up to Grade 1 listed buildings. We invite you to explore our portfolio showing the scope of our past projects.
