This project in West Buckland included a large kitchen extension finished with a zinc roof and roof lights. We also completed a full refurb of the top floor including 3x bedrooms, a new vaulted ceiling in the main living space and a mezzanine area. The building was finished with vertical larch cladding externally with new aluminium powder coated windows and doors throughout.

"Matt and his skilled team clearly enjoy what they do and this shines through in the quality of their work. It was great to be able to have complete confidence and trust in our contractor, as well as a jovial relationship. Our job was quite a fiddly refurbishment with various big structural changes, and prompt communication and logical thinking helped us achieve exactly what we wanted for our family home.


We’re extremely pleased with the attention to detail of the finished product and have a new sense of pride about our house. We couldn’t recommend Shackleton Construction enough."

An extension or conversion will maximise your property value and extend your living space without having to move house.


Refurbishments may be essential if you are planning to sell your home, improve it or if your property requires general maintenance and repair.
