Millhouses Design and Build have been responsible for numerous successful planning applications as well as the construction of 100s of beautifully-finished new homes and extensions as well as attic, basement and garage conversions.
Once we have drawn up your plans we will provide a detailed fixed-price quotation from us for building your project. If you already have plans, we would be delighted to prepare a quotation for carrying out the building work.
We specialise in extensions with structural steelwork, tanking etc. Detailed fixed-price quotations, guaranteed, so you can budget with confidence! We offer competitively-priced plans that achieve planning permission and are drawn to incorporate building regulations ready for approval by building control, designed to give our clients the result they hoped for via cost-effective construction techniques and materials. Possibly unlike the architect you might be considering using (or might already have engaged) to draw up your plans, as our team includes experienced builders we bring a very practical and down-to-earth construction-oriented approach to your exciting new project.
We really are able to turn your dreams into reality, as can be seen from the many projects in which we have been involved. We tell our clients that anything is possible – and it is, but it does depend on your budget. We will always be pleased to discuss the various options and provide a ball-park figure for the different possibilities along with our personal recommendations based on our experience and knowledge of other jobs on which we have worked.
We specialise in projects that many other builders will avoid, including tanking (waterproofing), retaining walls and structural issues such as structural openings from one room to another, or removing the back of the house to increase your living space and then incorporating french doors or bi-fold doors across the width of the house to bring light in and to create the illusion of even more space.
If you would like us to arrange for you to meet any of our previous clients, this isn’t a problem! We are always able to organise a visit, and it gives you the opportunity to do more than look at photos and read words on a website. Most importantly, you can see the finished result and have a chat so you get a feel for the level of service we offer and how pleased our customers are to have chosen us.
Millhouses Design and Build is a domestic and commercial building firm and architectural services provider based in Sheffield, specialising in providing professional, appropriate and cost-effective plans with Building Regulation approval, adept in dealing with the planning system and expert in building high quality extensions (and other residential alterations such as loft, garage and basement conversions), new houses and commercial properties for excellent value. We might not be the cheapest (though sometimes we are) but we believe that the level of service and the quality of plans and build that we offer is second to none.
We pride ourselves on our detailed quotes and our fixed, no-hidden-extras prices as well as on the exceptional quality of our plans and building work. All our work is guaranteed. The company carries full insurance including £1,000,000 of public liability insurance.
NHBC-accreditation is no problem for us – we can build your new-build property to obtain NHBC certification and have done so on many occasions.
We have extensive specialist groundworks expertise – if your new house or extension is to be built on a hill or slope, if there are trees on or near to the site or anything unusual about the ground conditions such as an underground stream nearby or even just a ground level that will be different from the outside to the inside you can be sure that by using Millhouses Design and Build, your project will be built by professionals who are experienced in dealing with these situations. As an example, there are some photos here of a project we carried out that required extensive and crucial underpinning.
