About Character Builders South West Ltd

We are a local, family run company based on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Character Builders is led by four brothers who each have areas of specialism, ensuring expertise across the spectrum of building work.

Our work mainly consists of period property maintenance with a portfolio that includes work on Devon Long Houses, barn conversions, barn restoration, cottages, timber framing, church restoration and general building maintenance.

We have a progressive and forward thinking approach to restoration work which integrates modern and traditional techniques to ensure the highest standards of craftsmanship. Our focus is on working with sustainable materials. Whilst we cover most aspects of general building work, including working with oak, cob and lime, we have close links with specialist craftsmen who work alongside us where needed.

The company’s philosophy is to work with the aesthetic of the surrounding countryside.
Working with both natural and modern materials to ensure the highest standards of contemporary restoration work our aim is to ensure any renovations fit into the surrounding countryside with as little environmental impact as possible. We also aim to support local businesses and suppliers where possible. This year we have backed the local arts festival where we are official sponsors. We also can be visited at the local agricultural show where we run a stand with stone masonry and plastering demonstrations taking place. We have also donated one of our ‘Character built’ ecological ‘compost loos’ to a local charity which runs rural adventures for city children. We have recently been featured in ‘Devon Today’ magazine where an editorial feature was run on our approach to building and client services.

Day to day we pride ourselves on our well run sites; our priorities being tidiness, clear communication with clients and reliability. Our company is well known in the community where we have established an excellent reputation through word of mouth recommendations.
