Extending your property

If you’ve outgrown your existing property, or have recently purchased, with a view of extending to meet your exact requirements, we can help you to design an addition that is both practical and beautiful.

Blending in or making a statement

When extending, there are a number of things to consider, it's important that the extension looks good, but equally, it must be functional and serve its purpose - either way, we’re good at making sure, that an addition to your property will look exactly as you planned and stunning in every aspect, whilst providing the additional space you need.

Building from start to finish

We don’t just do the building work for the extension and leave you with a shell to finish yourself, we can manage the entire project with our team of skilled tradesmen and specialist craftsman. Whether you are extending to create your dream kitchen, adding an additional bathroom, or creating more living/sleeping space, we have electricians and plumbers, decorators and designers, so we’ll be leaving you with a bigger home that’s ready to move in to and use from day one, all with the least amount of disruption possible.

Handing back your home

When we’re all done and finished inside, we stay in touch, to ensure that any issues that may arise are taken care of. Our team of professional carpenters and joiners, bricklayers, plasterers, plumbers and electricians, will all be there for you, so you can be rest assured that as the building settles into the existing building we are only a phone call away. Joining new and old structures together can sometimes offer surprises, but we care about our reputation as much as we do about your home.

We understand that exceptional projects require exceptional standards and therefore you will require a team that you can trust, to align to your vision and to completely understand how to build a home to be proud of. We work with and guide our clients, at every step, from day one, involving them as much as they want to be and upon completion of the build, we help realise interiors to complete the inside of a home to the highest standards. We bring your ideas to life with master craftsmanship, creative thinking and the experience to call upon during unforeseen challenges.

Grocott and Murfit are Norfolk-born professionals; we live here too, proudly serving our county, knowing exactly what it takes to inject a little bit of Norfolk charm into our building projects.

  • How long will it take?

    Existing buildings can have site-restriction issues that a new build wouldn’t have and timings can also vary greatly according to details like the number of storeys and rooms. Additional considerations are also to be made, such as, whether the build is to remain in character of the existing, older building, or in a new style of construction? Your architect should be able to give you a rough idea of build-times, but we can give you a good indication according to what time of the year the build starts after taking a look at your plans.

  • How much will it cost?

    Your architect was probably given a budget, but a design can vary massively when it comes to actually building it. We don't charge a fee to quote for your work, and while we're probably not going to be the cheapest, we won't be the most expensive, despite the quality of our work and the expertise within our team. We will give you a good honest price and assurance that you're getting our full attention and skill-set when we start.

  • How far do we travel?

    Most of our focus is on our doorstep here in North Norfolk, but we've completed projects around the wider County and we would be more than interested to learn more about your project, wherever it is. We would prefer to use our own tradesmen for projects we take on, so we try to stay within sensible travel times of Fakenham, but we would consider working further afield for the right project.
