Farmoor 2 Story Side Home Extension

With a 4 bedroom property in a little village called Farmoor just west of Oxford our customer wanted to add an extension to create a dressing room with en-suite upstairs study / reading room downstairs. Very little garden space was sacrificed with a large front garden and a fair size rear garden. The downstairs room had a knock through from the main living room and a large window at the front fitted along with a set of french doors to the rear. This enhanced the views of the gardens front and back. Upstairs the customer wanted to achieve a ‘secret’ doorway through to the the new area, we carefully removed part of an existing wardrobe and installed the new doorway through to the dressing room. Towards the end of the project the wardrobe frontage was modified and reinstalled so when closed it look the same as before we started. Inside the dressing room we built some floor to ceiling wardrobes with hanging rails and shelves, in the en-suite we installed a shower with tray and screen, a basin and toilet with accompanying base and wall units. The whole project was decorated by our in house decorator and the exterior was finished buy our groundworkers with a path / patio and a full height wall to divide the front and back

Yeats Close Home Extension

On this property it had a single garage to the side of the house that the customer wanted to retain, they decided that they needed to extend and so the decision was either to go out the back but sacrifice the garden or alternatively extend on top of the garage.

Islip Home Extension

Another 18 – 20 week building project mainly consisting of a 2 story rear home extension of different depths, downstairs we reconfigured the existing kitchen into a utility room and installed a new doorway to the side passage. In the new extension area the customer choose to have an open plan kitchen dinner that followed through to the snug area where they have the piano, downstairs we reconfigured the shower room and garage so that now they have a small storage area, an office and a toilet washroom. Upstairs we extended both the back bedroom added an en-suite to the master and installed built in wardrobes to both rooms. On the outside the 2 story part was built with matching bricks and the single story part was clad in Hardie Plank cladding.

Kirtlington Single Story Rear Home Extension

Based in the small village Kirtlington North Oxfordshire this detached property under went a ground floor reconfiguration, we added a rear home extension with a flat roof that tied into part of an existing garage, On this project our customer wanted to be very involved, he had an interest in how the build was constructed and chose to oversee the final stages of the second fix himself. The finishing phase was laying the patio which we think turned out quite nicely overall.

Morland Road Extension

This project made a great use of space. There was a long consultation period with R&B Builders, the architect and the home owner before any building work was started. The 3 bed house benefited from 1 very large room and 2 small rooms, the initial plan was to add an en-suite to this large room this would have worked well but would still only have 2 small rooms and the master suite. The home owners decided to commit to the building work a bit more and extend the first floor over the existing garage and ground floor extension, using 1 of the small rooms and the extension. This gave plenty of room for a master en-suite, at the other end of the house we divided the large room and added a new doorway on to the hall. This now benefits from 2 medium sized rooms and making the property a 4 bed house. As part of the project R&B Builders did all the plastering, tiling, 2nd fix, and decoration of the master suite, our plumbers also installed a new pressurised cylinder and configured the heating system.

Farmoor Dormer Alteration

This was one of our smaller projects, R&B Builders were chosen to enlarge a dormer on a Property in Farmoor just west of Oxford, the house is a converted bungalow with 2 bedrooms upstairs it had a small wash room in the middle with a toilet and basin. The project involved removing the old dormer and building a larger one, then installing a new suite with toilet, basin and most importantly a shower. The wall tiling, electrics and second fix carpentry were all finished off by the R&B team.

Testimonial:

I must say, I’m very happy with the way the job has been conducted and finished off, it is so often the hallmark of builders to neglect the finishing touches, thanks for all the little extra things you did like pressure washing the drive. The boys are really looking forward to using their new shower room!!

Marlborough Rd Loft Conversion

This loft conversion was in an old terrace house near Oxford city centre, the house dated pre 1900 so this great addition gave more space an a modern space in an old house.

1st Floor Cowley Rd Home Extension

This project was initially a 18 -20 week project, it required all trades and involved all the attributes R&B Builders pride ourselves on. Firstly we added a large 5m long, full width ground floor extension and then above had a 2.5m long full width first floor extension. On the ground floor we installed some large steel beams, this allowed us to remove the back of the house and open the existing kitchen up. We then partitioned off a corner of this large space to create a bathroom (as upstairs only had a shower room). A new Howden’s kitchen was installed and tiled throughout which gave the space a really upmarket feel. Upstairs the 2 small back bedrooms were doubled in size. At the front of the property R&B Builders added a small porch creating a nice space to store coats and shoes while not intruding on the house too much. The whole project was finished off with exterior decoration, a new patio with raised beds and at the front a new Cobbled Driveway.

This was a great little project on a slightly more modern house with a truss structure roof because of this it involved more complex propping to support the front half of the roof that was staying. The conversion consisted of a new master bedroom and en-suite.
