Why not utilise your space
South Lakes Building Company pride ourselves on expert craftmanship


"South Lakes Building Company has undertaken 2 significant, but very different building projects for us, both requiring high degrees of flexibility and creativity in design and construction due to the demands of the pre existing 17th century building and the topography of the land where the extension was to be built.
The results of both projects are excellent, creating just the effect that, as clients, we were both looking for.
Throughout, the craftsmens attention to detail and finish and in particutar as to how ideas could be developed and improved, was a key factor in our satisfaction with the project outcomes.
Although having building work done in your home is seldom easy (or tidy), the Southlakes team did everything possible to minimise any disruption (even to the extent of coming and going through the bathroom window!) and really did tidy up as they went along.
We would have no hesitation in recommending South Lakes Building Company,their work, work men and finished product."
