About Us


Barn conversion and renovation completed in 2019

We have been operating in the south west of France  for the past 17 years and have a wealth of experience in the planning, new build and renovation business. Starting out in 2003, we began by re-designing kitchens and bathrooms for UK clients with properties in the Charente, before specializing in barn conversions in 2008 and now cover all aspects of the design and construction process here in the  North Aquitaine region.

Working exclusively with registered tradesmen, offering fully insured ten year guarantees on all work undertaken, we provide a reliable and trustworthy service to ensure that your ideas become reality with the minimum of fuss and hassle. We will work with you at project inception to translate your thoughts into actionable plans, dealing with all authorities and regulations to ensure that the finished article exceeds your expectations. We'll source all tradesmen and manage budgets prior to and during work to ensure that your project comes in on time and within the financial constraints you set.

Planning permission ground plan

Let us navigate the French planning regulations for you. We will  draw up and submit applications for properties under 150 m2 and for your larger construction projects , we use accredited French architects to ensure that everything is done within the parameters of the French legal system. Competitive rates based on the size of work to be carried out ensure that our services remain affordable. 

Estate Agency floor plans

Estate Agent floor plan

When marketing a property, presentation is key if it is to stand out from the crowd. Pictures tell half the story but a floor plan allows potential buyers to visualize the property in terms of scale and size and cuts down on the number of wasted property visits. We provide professional quality floor plans that give your buyers that little extra. Rapid turnaround means that we'll create the floor plans from your sketch and return them to you within 48 hours. 

Commercial property

Metal structure commercial building

Having recently completed  the construction of a 500 m2 steel structured building for mixed usage (residential and commercial) we are well versed in marrying the needs of the business and the comfort of home. Specialist steel fabricators create our buildings offsite, re-assembling them onsite and fitting them out to your specification.

Drainage and Utility services

Bio-rock compact drainage system

A rural property not connected to any mains drainage or utilities presents a challenge to even the most skillful renovation experts but with the connection packages we offer, we can ensure that your property meets the government requirements (whether prior to sale or prior to purchase) with modern compact systems that sit happily beneath parking areas or lawns. 

Swimming pool design

In-ground 8 x 5 metre pool

What property in the South of France is complete without a pool? We offer installations to fit most budgets, be it a smaller pool for cooling off  or the renovation of an old barn for indoor models. Anything is possible, let your imagination run riot!!
