If you need extra room, but don't want to move house, why not make more of what you've got? A home extension is a great way of adding space and versatility to your property. It might be a playroom for the children, a study or a kitchen extension, there are countless possibilities and the only limits are your budget and your imagination.



You can't beat a hot shower or a long soak in your relaxing haven to make you feel on top of the world. Especially if it's a clutter free sanctuary where the everyday shampoo bottles and toys all have a place to hide.

It is time to use your imagination, to find that unique storage space or ultimate accessory for your bathroom. Try to utilise every corner and eliminate wasted space. Storage doesn't have to be big to be clever, and the right storage won't make your bathroom appear crowded.



The kitchen is the heart of a home. As the room that everyone in a household needs to use on a regular basis, a kitchen is a kind of social centre cum workspace and the place for conversation as well as cooking.

What these awesome people have to say!

Ben and his team came around to work on my new shower room. They carried out a very professional job, completing the work to a very high standard. I would recommend them to anyone.

Turnkey Builders built me a timber framed extension, on-time and on-budget. Everyone involved was friendly, clean and reliable. From groundworks to roofing, the whole job was carried out with care and attention to detail. The site was well managed and we felt well informed at every stage of the build. Brilliant job.

We contracted Ben Maclean to construct a new extension to our house at 80 Gladstone Road, Broadstairs between October 2014 and January 2015. This involved arranging for the demolition of a conservatory and two outhouses, digging foundations and constructing a timber-framed building to join onto our existing kitchen, which also had to be significantly adjusted internally. In addition to this, exterior support walls had to be opened up with steels to support.

We are absolutely delighted with the outcome of Ben's work. The work was so precisely accurate that our very experienced kitchen fitter said he had never before worked on a new building that had so exactly matched the original design. Throughout the process Ben, and any sub-contractor he used was entirely co-operative, efficient and open to alterations and opportunities to save money as well as being very friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with. He even managed to do all this in the immediate vicinity of three small children, with whom he always strove to get along.

We recommend Ben without any reservation whatsoever and remain hugely impressed with the quality of his work and the value for money he gave us.

Having employed Ben Maclean of Broadstairs Builders at our previous house, when we embarked on refurbishing our new property, we were in the enviable position of knowing that he is a skilled and trustworthy builder who we would feel comfortable have working in our home. We were not wrong. Over the past year he has been responsible for the redevelopment and updating of our new house.

This has included the refurbishment of two bathrooms, a walk in wardrobe and creating a utility area and building a new staircase banister rail. It also involved the construction of an extension forming a new 12 metre wing. He has achieved this splendidly; even matching the new roof to run seamlessly from the existing reclaimed Kent peg tile roof.

He has remained positive, innovative and very helpful as our plans have morphed over time. Arriving on site around 7.30 and working incredibly hard with a minimum of breaks to refuel, Ben has worked diligently to deliver a thoroughly pleasing result to a high standard within the timescales estimated. Where Ben has brought in other specialist trades, they have all been excellent in terms of their standard of work and reliability.

The house had been transformed from its former dated and neglected state into a bright, fresh comfortable home and we cannot thank Ben and his colleagues enough.

I have used the services of Turn-Key Builders on a number of occasions over the past few years and have always been totally happy with results achieved. Projects include a loft conversion which included an en-suite shower room, conversion of a garage into a beautiful dining room, the building of a double garage, fitting of a kitchen as well as the replacement and upgrading of a shower facility.

Ben always works to a high standard of quality and in a very professional manner. His work is very clean and he is most reliable and trustworthy. I would strongly recommend him for both small and large complex projects.
