Bringing clarity, confidence and character to home improvements Scroll Down

Every home, like every family, is unique and full of its own character and style.

As your family grows and adapts to change, so does the demand that it puts on the house you share together. Living in one space can both strengthen and challenge those relationships – and making that space work for you can help!

Housebuilding projects, redevelopment or simple refurbishments bring their own challenges, we know. That is why we have developed a clear, simple six-step plan to bring clarity, confidence and a definitive end result to any changes that you might be considering.

When it comes to building for your family’s future, you do not want to leave anything to chance.

Jump to the six steps

Steps to your dream home

Step

Your dream

Everything begins with a conversation. Our favourite projects are the ones that start with your family and understanding the need or dream you are looking to achieve. A meeting in your home is essential so we can start to explore some initial ideas right away and open the door to what solutions might be possible.

Step

Scribbles

This is where the fun and adventure begins!  From our earlier discussions, the brief that we will help you to write, and a measured survey (if necessary) we draw up some initial options. Then, together with you and your family we start to unleash the magic of potential and narrow down which of these will best work for you. All of our customers love this part of the process, and so do we.

Step

Meet the builders

After decades in the construction industry we have worked with some great builders and can help you find someone who you can trust with your home. We will introduce you to a few, or you might have one or two of your own in mind, and we’ll get some ballpark costings on paper for you.  Important Note: Meeting some builders super-early in the process is key to getting the result that you want at the end.

Step

Planning

The first official stage is the planning approvals. Don’t worry, we will submit these on your behalf and chase them up until we get the OK.

Step

Building regulations

With a successful planning approval, a set of drawings is now required to achieve compliance with all the building rules and regulations. Once again, this is done by us, and not something that you need to worry about at all.

Step

Construction

Together we will have agreed on the materials and a plan of how everything will proceed. The construction stage is where we relay this information to your builder so they know what is going on too.

What our clients say.

Great process, make me feel in control, Gordon and the team are all very approachable and walked me through the steps. I love my bathroom every morning!

Amaia Borja, 2018

A seamless process from start to finish. Meeting to kick things off so Yoop can understand the need. They put the need into pictures so you can visualise your dream and then they get the dream through planning with their technical drawings. A very easy and professional process.

Gary Philip, 2018

Yoop understands how people live and how houses work. They love a planning challenge or a tricky construction detail. Don’t look any further, call them.

Andrew Clifford, 2018

Gordon and the team helped so much with the planning process, the design and layouts and gave us some great ideas. Using YOOP made the whole building project a lot smoother – thank you
