build project by Trotman Builders.
Hollyhedge House is a new three bedroom farm
house in Doulting, Shepton Mallet, which features
under floor heating on both ground and first
floors, with a double height entrance hall with
balcony over. The project was completed a month
The photos above
show an example of a substantial extension which
Trotmans built to almost double the size of
the existing dwelling in Dilton Marsh. Steelwork
was used to form a double height living space
with roof lights above. Under floor heating
on the ground floor was also a feature of this
project, and is now more commonplace in many
projects we undertake.
Builds and Extensions
Having been established for 90 years and with
over one hundred properties built to date, we really do
have a wealth of experience in this market sector. Ironically,
it is often thought that if you want the house of your
dreams constructed, don’t ask a “house builder”!
This may sound a little strange; however, bespoke homes
do need that extra attention to detail that an exacting
client demands. So commissioning Trotmans makes perfect
sense, with meticulous planning and consultations with
clients and designers, we make sure that your ideas are
fully understood and the building is professionally constructed
to meet your defined requirements - both on time and on
budget. After all, to us this is not 'just another house',
but someone’s future home.
For new builds, an estimated cost based on a simple design
and a floor area can be ascertained at a very early stage
in the project, making it simple to keep ideas and size
to a realistic budget. This enables the finalized designs
to be drawn, knowing that the project is financially viable.
Unfortunately too many projects need to be redrawn due
to this simple but essential exercise not taking place,
at considerable expense to the client, as well as understandable
Considering an extension to your home?
With moving costs rising, and the obvious stress of a
house move, the thought of extending your current home
may be a more appealing prospect. We have built numerous
extensions throughout Somerset and the south west, in
a wide range of sizes and shapes that have made our clients'
ideas become a reality and an integral part of their current
This is where we have an outstanding track record, easing
any concerns customers may have with regard to guaranteeing
that only fully experienced craftsmen will be working
on their homes throughout the project. From start to finish,
our same skilled tradesmen will be on hand to put your
mind at rest, with an understanding and polite work ethic
that other contractors strive towards.
