Marcham First Floor 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.

“R&B Builders LTD have recently completed a loft conversion at our house in Marcham. They finished well within the 8-10 weeks time frame originally stated. All of the team of tradesmen were polite and friendly, reliable, punctual, efficient, trustworthy and honest. R&B Builders LTD were adaptable to making changes if they occurred and gave advise if required. They were very professional in their nature, displaying high levels of skill and workmanship and providing a wonderful finished loft bedroom with en suite. We would not hesitate to recommend R&B Builders LTD for any building work. Thank you Brett, Ray and Andy and the rest of the team for all your hard work, dedication and excellent craftsmanship.

Kingston Bagpuize Extension Refurbishment

Our customers on this project were suffering from a really cold house, the original part of the cottage was built pre 1940 with further extensions we guess around the 70’s. there was very little or no insulation in the walls, floor and roof. Solving these issues led onto a larger project.

Testimonial:

We employed R&B Builders to completely redo the ground floor of our house, with a new kitchen, flat roof, bi-fold doors, underfloor heating, patio etc. I am very glad we chose R&B to do the work for us. They were professional and friendly thoroughout the whole process, everything turned out just as they said it would, and there were no surprises on the project or the final bill. The quality of the work is excellent. I recommend them to everyone and will be using them again myself.

 

Work Carried Out:

  • Remove flat roof
  • Dig out old multi level floors
  • Remove most plaster

North Oxford Extension

Testimonial:

“We were very pleased with the work R&B Builders did for us on a quite complex extension. They were skilled and cheerful but also very keen to give us what we wanted. Occasionally they would come up with an alternative idea that improved on what had been designed. We would definitely work with them again.”

38 Norrise Close

This project was in Cumnor Oxford, it involved removing a wall, a chimney breast an old kitchen and digging out the floors. It was then re-build as an open plan kitchen dinner, with waterfed underfloor heating. A full re-plaster and a Howdens kitchen, finally fully decorated reusing the existing doors after being dip stripped, R&B Builders would like to thank the whole team that worked on this project.

Testimonial:

“Scouring around to find a construction company for building a conservatory and re-fitting our kitchen, we were struck by R&B Builders work in a house in a nearby town. They were so impressive we didn’t consider anyone else. Now we have added our 5 stars to their tally. In a nutshell, the work was completed well within sched ule which was important with the approaching cold weather. The quality of the work was of high level and there were no hidden costs added beyond what was quoted. The builders were very helpful with advice and responded well to changes that we kept introducing during the work. Any problems were resolved quickly and to our entire satisfaction. We have a new conservatory and kitchen that we are now enjoying to the full. We have no hesitation in recommending R&B Builders Ltd.”

2 Story Extension

On this project R and B have been contracted to under take a new 2 story extension to include a new master bedroom with en-suite and dressing room, downstairs an open plan kitchen, dinning and living space and a reconfiguration of the existing rooms upstairs. We have a scheduled time of 14 weeks weather permitting.

Feature of this project: to keep the exterior as traditional looking as possible hopefully after a year or two it will blend in with the old and you will not be able to see the extension. The interior to be modern spacious and a real family space. This property also has a well that will be centered on the living area, with an 11ft drop to the water line it will be quite a conversation point.
