Eco-friendly building

Nowadays we can offer many options in a build project to help you save energy - here are some key benefits to consider:

• Much improved insulation values throughout the structure

• Energy efficient light fittings & bulbs can be fitted throughout

• E-glass can be fitted to all new windows & skylights

• Solar panels can be fitted to roof during the project

• New energy efficient condensing boilers available

• Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly materials from sustainable resources

• Any waste from a project is recycled wherever possible

These energy saving options will not only reduce your fuel bills, but will also provide your house with a better rating in energy performance.

<<Example of a recent new build project in Somerset

The slideshow on the left shows the stages of a new 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 before schedule.

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.

New 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 delays.

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 home.

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.
