Your Home Reimagined
10 April 2020

At Bruach we know that the Bank Holiday weekends are usually a time when you start to spring clean your home and begin DIY projects.  We also understand that this Bank Holiday weekend will be unlike any other.  You may find yourself staring at your own four walls wondering how you could change them.  During this period of lockdown, has being at home with your children made you realise that you need more space?  Are you dreaming of extending your home in the future?  Have you been building your own dream home on The Sims, or watching architects with VR headsets on the TV?


Well now may be a good time to put your plans in motion!

We, like other businesses, have been looking at ways that we can alter our working practices to continue doing our work, whilst respecting social distancing rules.  If you have been thinking of extending or altering your home we may have a solution for you.  We are offering a fixed price feasibility study service for £480 where we will do the following:

  • Gather basic information from you about you and your home such as address, photographs and details of any previous alterations
  • Encourage you to consider what is most important to you – should you extend, what would be the most important changes for your family?
  • Carry out a virtual meeting where you can walk round and show us your home by video
  • Gather key dimensions of your home from you, we can point out the important ones to measure
  • Prepare sketch layout options for your proposals including 3D visuals
  • Provide outline costs for the project including professional fees, local authority fees and possible build costs



We would encourage you to gather ideas for your project.  Instagram and Pinterest are great resources to gather visuals for your designs.  There are also many websites to help you such as:


Time is always tight in any construction project, particularly when you have to obtain Planning Permission and Building Warrants, and this can often cause stress when clients are keen to start building as soon as possible.  Why not use this time to put all of your plans in place and get the wheels in motion for your home alterations?  After all, we all need something exciting to look forward to!



Contact us here now to learn more and let us help you transform your family home.


We hope you have a great Easter weekend with your families.
