The brief

We purchased a garden plot with planning permission to build the beautiful new home in the West Sussex countryside. It was important to construct a building that sits comfortably within the wooded setting. Soft brick tones and larch cladding gives the property a natural appearance and the intricate lead work dormer windows, display real craftsmanship.

The work

Day one and we discovered the ground conditions were not as simple as the soil investigation suggested. Running sand and an obsolete septic tank, provided some head scratching for the engineers. A steel beam and driven sheet piles were designed and fabricated to secured the foundation design. Once out of the ground our directly employed brick work team and carpenters set about constructing this beautiful new home.

The result

The house was completed in December 2017 and sold in Jan 2018. This is testament to great design and execution. Don’t take our word for it, here is was the new owners have to say…

What people say about us

The attention to detail inside and out, the craftsmanship and design of Gorse Bank is why we fell in love with our forever home. All dealings with James and his craftsmen have been stress free and reassuring.  If your thinking of having your home built or adapted we would not hesitate to recommend King & Drury.
