How Lapwings Can Help With Your Renovations

We can help renovate various styles and ages of buildings and properties from barn conversions to boat house conversions.

Recent renovations – We were invited to the stunning and remote Isle of Horrisdale, in Wester Ross to look at a proposed extension for a boat house and ended up renovating approximately 90% of the property.

We extended and created a new bedroom, bathroom, lounge, sun-lounge which included everything in our “10 Tips Every Self Builder Needs To Know”.
