How Can We Help You?

Making that drawing a reality takes a lot of decisions. The benefits of self-build are that you get exactly what you want in the location of your choice with considerable savings on the price of a similar spec, size and quality ready-built property.

To achieve a successful building project you must plan meticulously and develop a high level of trust between yourself and your contractors. This requires excellent teamwork, collaboration, communication, and patience. We are here to help you achieve this.

The Cornish Place

This renovation has been a labour of love not only for the owners but for the team at Melvin Construction.
Phase one was the renovation to the main house shortly after the owners purchased and along with interior work to the house, the biggest feature involved a 2-storey gable wall addition of full height feature glass windows on the second floor.

Then followed the extensive renovation of the existing dilapidated barns surrounding the main house into
stylish luxury holiday lets and entertaining barn space.

Now the buildings are a fully thriving holiday and wedding venue business surrounded by acres of beautiful countryside.

There are currently 5 renovated letting barns with Melvin constructing another new build addition for the 2022 season
