Simon Benford (Builder) has been established since 1987. We specialise in building garages, stables, studios, offices and other outbuildings across the New Forest & Hampshire. Originally focusing on groundworks & totally restoring The Olde Barn working above the ground became more prolific and our direction of work changed to what we do today.
All building projects are different but here is an idea of a typical construction scenario.
We can demolish the redundant buildings if appropriate & dispose of. We then start in the ground by preparing the base and foundation, ready to receive the building of your choice, which can be made of any materials; typically brick/block built, softwood or hardwood.
Once the building is erected roof coverings of your choice will be fitted. We are then fully equipped to finish off inside, which could be for the use of an office, stable, studio, bedroom ,kitchen. Then our focus moves outside where we prepare the drive, typically block paving, shingle, and the surrounding areas; the patio and lawn etc.

Upon receiving your enquiry we will make an appointment to come and view your property and advise you of the appropriate options. We can also give guidance on building regs/planning/costs if required.
Very many thanks for your hard work and dedication - in all weathers! The building is a great success and we will all enjoy it. We know who to come to again if we need anything.
