With most of us spending so much more time at home, many property owners have been considering embarking upon extension, renovation or remodelling projects.

And Anthony McCulley, director of A McCulley Construction and Contracting, which carries out a wide range of domestic and commercial projects in the Cheshire area, agrees now could also be the ideal time to start planning a new build home.

Q: Why is this the right time to consider a building project?

A: With the current pandemic, there is an expectation that house prices will drop by nine per cent – which is better than the 35 per cent that was originally feared – and so many people are opting to improve and add value to their own homes instead of selling. They are carrying out projects that have been hanging around in the background, while they are waiting for the market to bounce back – and it is envisaged that it will bounce back quicker and stronger than before.

Q: What about new build homes? 

A: Yes, the same goes for new build homes. Personally, I love a good new build. What better way to stamp your own mark on the landscape and express your own style and vision from a blank canvas? Our company takes on work ranging from home extensions and renovations to complete new build homes. We also carry out restaurant and retail fit out and work with some of the biggest names in the UK construction sector.

Q: Can renovation projects add value to a home? 

A: Understanding the market and how best to utilise space can change the whole demeanour of a home and is also the key to property development. A simple window, for example, can add value by transforming a gloomy looking corner into a bright, open entertaining space. A company like A McCulley Construction and Contracting, with its own team of architects and designers, can take a simple idea and turn it into a real life project. We love nothing more than taking a property back to basics and restoring it to its original character. Right now, we are seeing a new wave of young architects and interior designers bringing some cutting-edge, modern ideas into older properties.

Q: What are the first steps a homeowner should take? 

A: To get in touch with a company like ours so we can take all the stress and trepidation out of creating a dream home. While our architects are drawing up plans, we can also start to progress the interior designs. Given the approach we take to each and every project, with one point of contact and keeping the whole team under one roof, we can ensure our customers’ needs are met and the process moves smoothly and efficiently.
