This was a fairly complex job which took place over three main stages. Communication was v good throughout; essential for a job of this type. We slept for several weeks in three different parts of the house as it was dismantled and rebuilt around us, including a relocation of the kitchen. I found Alan very easy to work with. He was always attentive to the details of our needs/requests and was the consummate professional throughout. Electrical and plumbing work was done v effectively by subcontractors.Tim
I want to create a double wide doorway from my kitchen to livingroom area which it through a breeze block wall - this wall could be semi structural and will need support girder. There will also be replastering and making good area as well as repositioning of some light switches and power sockets.
Completed the removal of a supporting wall between my kitchen & livingroom. DRB Carpentry quoted Job price, duration & specifications - Managed to finish the Job 3days early and to a higher standard than what I was expecting (I was expecting allot more mess - but DRB ensured that my house was left in the best posable condition everyday). Project management was amazing with best use made of every tradesman that was required and at all points kept me informed of how the project was progressing.Well deserved 5Chris
skim walls & ceilings, replace skirting boards and doors. Also considering new kitchen and bathroom - so potential installation too
Absolute Construction were able to offer us exactly what we were looking for without being over and above the budget we had. This allowed us to buy a house that had not been lived in for over two years and needed a good refurb to bring it into the 21 century and to the spec we wanted.
Dave and his team were able to offer us creative solutions to issues we had not considered and regular meetings ensured there were no surprises as the project progressed - would definitely recommend this firm!claire

We are buying a new home and need a builder to remove some internal walls some of which may be load bearing although I'm not sure. The walls to be removed are upstairs to knock out two walls 1. dividing the toilet from the bathroom and 2. between the bathroom and bedroom 3. We then need a one new stud wall put in after the toilet is moved to make bedroom 3 bigger.
Downstairs we need a wall removing between the kitchen and dining room to make one big kitchen diner. We need the internal walls knocked out at the back of the kitchen to remove the pantry, outside store and outside toilet.
Lastly downstairs we need to concrete floor raising after toilet is removed in the outside store and toilet to bring it into the kitchen.
We are looking for good quotes from local builders who are able to do the job quickly and possibly in phases depending on the cost.

4-5 bedroom two storey new build, with outdoor swimming pool, in brick, render, and stonework. Must have accesss to machinery for demolishin the house, and using the hardcore for new drive, etc and so crusher also useful. House will have Blockwork finish, roof tile finish, with trusses underneath (not Sips) . Would also consider wooden frame. approx 4000 sq ft, to include large windows in mullion stone finish. Plaster board walls, maybe concrete floor to first floor. As well as under floor heating we are using renewable energy, so builder must be up to date with these finishes. Would consider labour only quotation, owner will manage the job and supply all materials, through local merchants , as well as electrician and plumber although will consider builders own quotation. We are on a very tight budget. Interior finish will have stone floor downstairs, as well as some carpet, and some wood. Woodburning stove, and gas fire in two areas. Would possibly do concrete floor too. All wall finish may have spray paint finish. Good plasterer essential.
