Are you looking to build your own home, extend or undertake some significant remodelling and want to make it as green as possible? The Kwosh team is passionate about sustainable building and the development of desirable homes. We have a wealth of experience in both the renovation of period properties and the development of new homes. Our portfolio includes homes that have featured in Ideal Home, Home Building & Renovation and Build-It magazines.

Features include under floor heating throughout, MVHR, LED lighting and rainwater harvesting. The build took a year and was completed in 2010.

April Cottage

April Cottage was built on the site of two derelict attached cottages that had been vacant for 60 years in a village location bounded on three sides by occupied dwellings. The original stone was reused to maintain the barn like appearance from the road side and the rear elevation was extended to create an innovative U-shape to utilise available space effectively creating a large four bedroomed family home that maintained a high level of privacy.

Hainton House

This project saw the renovation and reconfiguration of a Grade II listed period stone house while retaining many of its original features. The original 4 bed 1 bathroom layout was changed to provide 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a study area to suit 21st century family life. The house was extensively insulated, windows were upgraded and a glass link area was created to the rear which boosts natural solar gain during the winter months.
