Exceptional service from planning to finishing touches

All of our projects start the same way. We take time to get to understand exactly what our clients want to achieve and design a tailored plan to meet their exact needs and requirements.

Throughout your project we will keep you up to date with progress and ensure that we minimise any disruption to your home. We will be punctual and deliver value for money.

The end result is a luxury finish that will improve your quality of life.

New builds

We have built beautifully constructed new homes across Devon. Working closely with you and your architect we will help to bring your vision of your perfect home to life.

A new build is a big project to take on and we know it can be stressful. To help you feel more in control you can expect us to keep you up-to-date with progress and exactly what is happening throughout the project.

“I instantly observed a builder who understood his client’s needs. He has built brilliantly on our plans with some innovative ideas. I have relied on, and trusted, in Dan’s advice as the project has proceeded.”

Terry Headford, new build client


Each renovation project is unique, so we start by finding out what you need from your renovation. We are experts at upgrading properties to create luxury, bespoke homes.

“Dan does not just do what you ask, he also comes up with new ideas to ensure you get the best possible results. We now have our cottages up and running and with Dan’s help have created our dream holiday business.”

Marcus Bailey and Ryan Lynch, renovation clients

“Dan completed our precious house transformation on time and on budget. We asked Dan to do a few extra jobs on top of the build such as our wonderful terrace at the back of the house, this was added to the work schedule with no fuss and delivered on time.”

Christine Gerrys, renovation client


An extension can breathe new life into your home, giving you extra space and enabling you to create the layout you want, without the need to move.

From creating extra bedrooms or a home office to extending your living space, we can help you plan how best to make the most of your available space.

“Dan made some expert suggestions in the design of the kitchen, giving us more workspace and opening up the living room by keeping the amazing chimney breast exposed. We would never have visualised how these small tweaks could make such a massive change to the look of the original design.”

Mike Wills, extension client

“Once on site, Dan’s tidy and respectful team delivered the build within the time frame specified to a very high standard of craftsmanship. They often surpassed my expectations of what I thought was going to be delivered and it was all overseen by Dan each day.”

James and Kristy Bale, extension client

Loft & garage conversions

Turning unused loft space or a garage into an extra bedroom or home office can make a huge difference to your quality of life.

We will work with you from the initial planning stages through to the finishing touches.

Our portfolio of loft conversions includes gable end conversions, L-shaped dormers, rear dormers, rooflights, Mansard loft conversions and hipped loft conversions.

“Dan was able to help me visualise the inset in my new work space and how that would work. I was very pleased with the workmanship of the team.”

Barn conversions

Barn conversions are popular in Devon and we have helped many clients repurpose agricultural buildings to create high-quality bespoke homes.

We will work with you and your architect throughout the project to ensure that the end result is a stylish, functional home.

“Dan Cook Carpentry and Building has exceeded our expectations on so many fronts. You can be confident that Dan and his team are honest and want to do the right thing for their clients.”

Marcus Bailey and Ryan Lynch, conversion clients
