Watkins have recently been involved in the latest BBC DIY SOS Big Build.

We took the call on the Tuesday, submitted designs on the Wednesday and were on site by Friday stripping out the existing heating system ready to start the following week.

The challenge was to build a special needs single storey extension to provide 2 further bedrooms, lounge area and a full disabled wet room including an assisted bath.

Not to mention a complete refurbishment of the family’s 3 bedroom home. This was the BBC team’s largest and most ambitious project to date and was completed easily within the 9 day window.

Details are top secret at the moment as the episode is not scheduled for a couple of months but the scheme was for a very deserving family and we are proud to have donated our services and to have worked alongside likeminded charitable trades who are all a credit to the industry.
