Why choose Vernacular Homes?

A home that works both now and for the future

Building a new home is a big project – and we don’t underestimate the leap of faith it takes for our clients to allow us to be their partners in creating a home that works for them both now, and in the future too.

We’re the experts in barn conversions, new builds, successful planning applications, renovations and extensions.

Experience is listening

We could talk all day about our experiences, past projects, expertise, knowledge and qualifications, but where our success really lies is in listening to our clients and designing a magnificent home for them which meets their lifestyle needs.

We bring your ideas to life

Clients come to us with brilliant ideas of what they want, the layout, the size of the windows, views, kitchen and outside space – it’s our job to make sure that the house gives them as much of this as practically possible.

We start with questions, to find out what they want, what’s important, how they want to live and what they do and don’t like.

We create a virtual tour of your home

Once a design has been created, virtual technology can transport them into their home to walk around it before a single brick has been built.

Experience the flow, look and feel

It’s an extraordinary moment – they can see their view when they sit at their dining table, when they wake up in the morning, or do their washing up. They can imagine what it feels like to walk from one from to another, to look up and down, deciding if this flow, look and feel are what they want.

We listen again, then we tweak designs until we have the right one – then we manage the whole build for our clients, taking on the stress and strain of the project throughout the entire timeline.

We keep on listening, reassuring, calming, problem-solving and informing our clients of what’s happening and when. Communication is key!

Testimonials – Past & Present

Here are some words from our past and current clients – we’d love to hear from you about the project that’s currently swimming around in your head.

“They’re a fantastic family company and the quality of the house is brilliant.”

“We’d already spoken to two or three architects and had actually taken one on, but it didn’t quite feel right, so that’s when we approached Vernacular Homes. The fact that they take care of everything from the architectural side, through to all the trades was really appealing.”

“They started out by asking us to focus on our top three requirements – lots of light, a more open feeling, and to connect to the barn on two levels. We really liked that.”

“Although they had lots of suggestions, they were very open to our ideas and listened to what we wanted; we didn’t feel like we had a big flashy architect telling us what to do – it felt very collaborative.”

“We found them extraordinary to work with. Everything was so timely and planned well. We knew in advance exactly when we would need to decide about things like paint colours and bathroom fittings, so we never felt like we were being made to make last minute decisions.”

“We were always informed about what the next stage would be, and when payment would be due.”

“We’re so pleased that we chose Vernacular Homes, because we really felt they worked with us and listened so that we got the home we wanted.”

“The moment we met Trevor and the team, they immediately gave us a great deal of confidence in their ability to work with our vision.”

“We were so impressed by Vernacular Homes’ professional approach, standards of workmanship and attention to detail.”

“We would have no hesitation in recommending Vernacular Homes to anyone seeking to develop a property of character to a high level of specification.”

“I could see from their previous work that Vernacular Homes was just who we were looking for. Trevor was so personable the first time I spoke to him, and I could tell straight away that he was very knowledgeable and trustworthy.”

“They’ve come up with some great ideas that we wouldn’t have thought of ourselves. Their site management has been very impressive and the build continues to amaze me.”
