Residential building services

Residential and domestic building services for Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West

Photo of Residential building services projectOver our years in business, we’ve worked on a broad portfolio of residential renovations, sympathetic extensions, and barn conversions. We cover all types of domestic and residential building projects ranging from new build to historic and traditional Lake District buildings, and we have good experience of work on properties for the lettings and holiday rental market.

Our skilled tradesmen deliver the highest quality of workmanship, and we can co-ordinate the full range of trades required for the site - from general builders to plumbers, electricians to plasterers, stone masons to joiners, decorators to carpenters.

We always aim to exceed expectations, complete on time, and work to your budget. We are proud to be members of the Federation of Master builders, and we’re committed to the highest standards of customer service and workmanship in the industry through their code of practice.

We can help you with the planning process, we will work closely with other specialists (architects and surveyors), and you can expect us to manage your site professionally and tidily. And of course we are local and family run so we’re easy to talk to and we enjoy chatting with our clients over the odd mug of tea (only if it’s well-earned of course).

Please see our FMB page and our projects pages for more details of our successful approach to residential and domestic building works in Cumbria and the Lake District.



  • Victorian terraced house

    We are delighted with our Victorian terraced house after a complete renovation by THI. It was a major job as the house had been neglected for many years, but the project was very well managed with minimum stress for us. It was carried out by a skilled workforce who were always polite and cheerful. Neighbours have commented on their considerate approach in minimising disruption to adjoining properties. We benefited greatly from the expert knowledge and advice of Jim and Paul, who were enthusiastic and careful to get things right, while keeping within budget. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending THI for any home improvements.
