SJP Builders work with home owners to create the perfect living environment.
For many people the dream of the perfect home is dependent on location – house by the sea or a home in the English countryside. A city centre flat with shops, restaurants and bars right on the doorstep. Many people move to catchment areas of popular schools or to be close to friends or family.
Knowing where to move to is half the battle but what happens when we find the location but can’t find the house?
SJP Builders have the solution. We can work with house buyers to create the perfect home from a house bought in the desired location.
Most people are familiar with the concept of barn conversions. A disused outbuilding in the country is redesigned and converted into a modern structure, maintaining some of the original features while adapting the space available to suit the new home owner. The same concept can be applied to almost any building, almost anywhere.
SJP Builders work with established architects to help you design the home you want. With years of experience in house conversions and extensions, SJP Builders know what is physically possible, what is advisable, what will work and what the finished project will look like.
Most people think of a house as a collection of rooms: a kitchen, a bathroom, bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a hallway, a garage. SJP Builders think of it in a different way. A home is foundations and supporting walls, flooring, ceilings, partition walls, a roof, plumbing and electrics. By thinking of a home as a collection of its constituent parts, SJP Builders can unlock the potential in any building. You tell us what you want and we can convert almost any house to make that dream come true.
By including conversion and rebuilding costs into your budget you can actually save money. There is no need to pay over the odds for the right house in the right location when the wrong house in the right location can be redesigned, converted and rebuilt for less. And the ‘new’ house will have been designed and built to meet your requirements and your specific desires.
Many people already live in the perfect location. The home they live in holds memories. It is in a good area and they are surrounded by the friends, family and neighbours they have known for years. There are costs and inconveniences associated with every house move including conveyance fees, solicitors’ fees, estate agent fees, removal fees and then the hassle of reregistering with a new GP or finding new schools.
But people outgrow their home. The family grows and more space is needed. Or it starts to feel tired. Perhaps the children have grown up and left leaving unused bedrooms and wasted space.
Whatever the problem, SJP Builders can convert your existing space into the home that suits you now and in the future. SJP are specialists in extensions, redesigning and creating new rooms where none had existed before. Recent changes in the planning regulations now make this easier and more affordable than ever before.
We rebuild kitchens, we can move kitchens, we extend kitchens, add utility rooms or downstairs bathrooms. We can widen existing rooms and convert garages into office space, home gyms or anything else you have in mind. We can build upwards, making the most of the loft space or we can redesign your home to take into account you health needs or the environmental impact of the property, reducing energy bills and increasing warmth.
SJP Builders can extend the makeover to the space outside your home. Patios and patio decking add living space to any home. Proving to be increasingly popular we can build stand-alone rooms in the garden to be used as offices, workspace or workshops, in keeping with you existing property, with plumbing, heating and lighting as standard. SJP Builders offer a full landscaping and gardening option, changing the views from your windows and allowing full use of all available space.
We are always happy to talk to you about your ideas, hopes and ambitions for your home. We are sure we can even add a few of our own.
