The Proprietors ...

We are Andrew & Denise, we own the building plot in Southwaite, Cockermouth, and have every intention of building ourselves a forever home and converting The Barn at some stage too. Please read our ‘About Us …‘ page to learn more about us and the history of our beautiful plot.

The Builders ...

It didn’t really take us very long to determine that we would use Lattimers as our builders. They are a very reputable local company who have won many ‘building awards‘. From day one of our meetings with them they inspired much confidence and we just knew we wanted to use them to build our new home.

With their roots very firmly planted in Cumbria they have built an enviable reputation for providing exceptional design, build quality and attention to detail that has established the Lattimer Group as one of the UK’s premier home and commercial property specialists. Their award winning builds have received both County and Country wide recognition, with a series of successive awards acknowledging their commitment, skill and continuity in building outstanding homes as well as commercial properties across Cumbria and beyond.

Please go to their ‘website‘ to read more about ‘Lattimer Homes …‘ .

The Building Team ...

The building team consists of specialists and sub contractors supplied from Lattimers.

These include:

Tony, who did huge amounts of background work prior to the start of the build, is the project costings manager. He gathered together costings and every single detail and aspect of the build so that whole build would run smoothly once the build started.

Craig, who will deal with all build and project management details, is the project build site manager.

The Guys, are the team of hard working guys who will do all the hard labour.

Sub Contractors ...

All, or should I say most, of the sub contractors will be project managed by Lattimers, our builders. However, we may employ our own sourced Kitchen Company, which will still be a local company but one whose kitchens we love. We will also source, locally if possible, our own sub contractor to fit internal window shutter; I’m initially think Laura Ashley.

Take a look at ‘the galleries …‘ for images at every stage of the build, they will be updated often.

Internals ...

The design of the inside of the home will be mainly by Denise with liaison with Andrew, as it will be a compromise of tastes and ideas. Even though, the house is in the country, the internals will be a mix of styles. I always just go with what I like personally, which is usually very pretty and girly. However, I always take Andrew into account and if he seriously hates something I never push it. That said, if I seriously LOVE something he never, usually, disagrees.
