Our Services

Bathrooms & Plumbing

Our full house renovation service includes everything from project conception & advice to interior and exterior remodelling. Clients living overseas entrust their property to us so we ensure regular updates & photos to show progress along the way. 


Pointing & Interior Renovation

Many of the French houses need interior & exterior re-pointing to bring them back to life. We have years of experience renovating older properties using sympathetic techniques where appropriate to retain the charm & character of the local style whilst realising additional spaces in attached barns and outbuildings.

Kitchens & Tiling

Often using locally sourced materials to complement brand new kitchen installations. We work closely with local trades and electricians, to provide a complete service, including re-wiring, underfloor heating, sourcing cabinets & furniture, everything a house renovation might need. 


Good to know:

What types of renovations do you specialise in?

Most of our work has been in the renovation of old stone properties for owners wishing to create extra space, either by adding additional bedrooms to the attic for example or into attached barns. Almost all requiring new kitchens, bathrooms and window replacements. We've been in the business for almost 20 years now and we've carried out renovations which have included old Chateau to small town houses and everything in between. 

Are you licensed and insured?

Yes, we are fully licensed in France and have a French 10 year decenniel insurance.  

Do you provide project management services?

Yes, we can overseas an entire project. We've had many UK based clients who wanted their entire projects managed, including the overall design, sourcing kitchens, bathrooms and even furniture. We have cultivated relationships with other trades over the years, trusted electricians, fosse-septic installers / ground workers and carpenters. We are happy to hand-hold with the planning process and local authorities, particularly if the client doesn't live in France full time.  

Do you speak English?

Yes! We are English and moved here almost 20 years ago. We speak French and can help with most translations! 

Here's what some of our clients have said :

"Max did a full refurb on a small property I bought near Peyrat Le Chateau. 
He managed the work well and delivered the perfect project with no supervision at all from my end. Everything was perfect and the costs seemed very reasonable.
Could not recommend more highly" James Knowles


"Max undertook a renovation on an old mill. He completed the work to a very high standard and within budget. He is enormously helpful in providing sound advice and guidance. Keeping us updated on progress, or various issues that arose. We highly recommend Max and plan to ask for his building services again". Michael Meehan

“ Extremely happy with the work. Everything professionally completed and importantly always left in a clean and tidy state. Due to the co-virus situation we totally relied on Max and Sam to complete the work in our absence and felt very comfortable to rely on their work standards and integrity. No hesitation in recommending them” Mr Crawford

"Max has replaced windows, moved the front door involving a knock-thru, planned, sourced & installed the kitchen & bathroom and mended the roof of our cottage, all at very reasonable cost and to a high standard. We know we can trust him to carry out work to our satisfaction when we are not around" Mr & Mrs Hamilton


"Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks for your professionalism".  Mark Singleton

"Our project was a complete house renovation including a large loft conversion. The work was very comprehensive . We had a new configuration of our first floor making 2 large bedrooms family bathroom and en-suite. An additional 2 rooms created in the loft space with en-suite. Installation of velux windows which has now made a vey light airy space.
Max also installed a fully fitted kitchen with all new plumbing and tiling to the ground floor.
We are extremely satisfied with the standard of work carried out by Max and would highly recommend him as we found him to be conscientious, trustworthy and meticulous throughout the whole project. We would not hesitate to endorse his ability and skill required for renovations or any other building work" Mr & Mrs Ormston


“We really are very pleased with the work and blown away with the crepi and pointing. The internal work is excellent too and the finish in the en-suite is great. If you need us to endorse you for other clients we are more than happy to do so, you can provide our email and telephone number”.Mrs Rourke
