This project had it all, conversion, new extensions, rennovation, bespoke oak framing and luxuriously appointed and comfortable interiors.
Press release from FMB
Ben Mitchell is the winner for his work on a property in Ticehurst, creating a modern yet traditional guest suite / studio. Ben claimed the region’s prize thanks to a keen eye for detail, unfailing good humour and bucket-loads of enthusiasm for the job.
Ben will now go through to the national finals. The national winners of the eleventh Master Builder of the Year Awards will be announced by architect and TV presenter George Clarke, who will present the coveted accolades at a ceremony at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London on 20 March 2013.

Reference from the Client
Mitchells Construction and Development Limited carried out the conversion of a dilapidated existing three car garage at our home.
The work involved a number of features including the erection of an oak frame to provide structural support, provision of under-floor heating; creation of a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and the creation of new windows and doors.
MCD also carried out various external works in association with the project, a grass banked Ha-Ha wall and a Folly wall of traditional appearance together with a formal pond and related pathways.
We were and still are extremely pleased with the quality of the work and the final outcome.
We have since asked them to build a front extension in oak framing and a first storey bathroom with which we are also delighted.
I am happy to recommend the firm and Ben and Joe the people most involved in the works.
