What we do
Throughout all our contemporary build projects, we continuously strive to embrace new building materials and building techniques which encompass up-to-date eco designs, home automation, and utilising the latest technology such as sound and security systems to multiple areas, wall mounted plasmas, wet rooms, cinema rooms and much much more - building houses fit for the future!
Our primary aim is to create a lifestyle for the future, but first and foremost a home and space you can love and grow into - giving all our customers the confidence and knowledge that their home has been built with minimum impact on the environment and built to the highest standards at that time.
As a design/build firm, we are able to help clients make informed decisions in every phase because we deeply understand how design affects construction. At each project milestone we endeavour to strike the right balance between three priorities: Design, Cost and Schedule.
We believe that great architecture begins with great relationships with our clients. Design is a collaborative process in which the client’s knowledge of their own needs is as important as the expertise of the professionals involved.
We want our collaborative design vision to be realised coherently throughout, in spaces large and small and indoor and outdoor.

"I just want to say thanks for everything to Terry and all the team. They are amazing and we would never have got the fabulous extension that we have, without THD. We are over the moon. We started out with builders and we ended up with friends.
"If you are looking to improve your home or build a new property, speak to Terry Huggett Developments first. From start to finish, they were amazing. Terry and everyone who works with him are a brilliant team, trustworthy, reliable, hard working and perfectionists. They take your vision and make it a reality, but better than you could ever imagine. We cannot recommend them highly enough, and look forward to working with them on many more occasions in the future."
Mr and Mrs P Stringer
"We first approached Terry Huggett Developments in early 2009 as we were embarking on building a first floor extension to our home and his company had been highly recommended to us from a family friend. Also, after learning that Terry’s company had won a recent building award, we were very keen for him to undertake our building project.
"At the outset, Terry was a very friendly & professional person who had a great understanding of our vision for our home. He came across as a trustworthy, honest person who had a fantastic knowledge of the building trade and went through every aspect of the build with us. He took care of every detail so there was very little worry or stress on our part.
"We confirmed a start date of 30th March 2009 and this was adhered to and the build was to take approximately 4 months. In that time, Terry and his team worked tirelessly and conscientiously to complete our extension, which was built within the timescale, with very little mess or inconvenience and we were extremely happy with the end result. Terry and all members of his company (and contractors) were very hardworking, reliable, professional and courteous people and it was a pleasure having them at our home. We became good friends with Terry and his family and have remained in contact since our extension was finished.
"We would highly recommend Terry Huggett Developments to anyone wanting a first- class, superior quality building project on their home."
Richard & Sharron Brooks
"Having known Terry for a number of years we were keen to discuss our plans for a proposed single storey extension to the rear of our home with him and his team. Whilst we had a good idea of the concept and living space that we wanted to achieve, it was Terry's input that brought the inspiration to develop our initial plans into the contemporary indoor/outdoor space that ticks every box to fulfil the needs of modern family living.
"Following the initial design discussions (and a very competitive quote), we knew that Terry was the right builder to employ to carry out the works on our house. The whole team from THD worked extremely hard under difficult weather conditions to ensure that every aspect of the build process was carried out in a professional yet personal manner. Terry's positive nature and enthusiasm instilled confidence and re-assurance to us, which invaluably contributed to the successful conclusion of the project.
"All elements of the extension were completed on time and within budget. The standard of workmanship was exceptional and we do not hesitate to recommend THD to our friends and family who are looking for a high quality and reliable service."
Paul and Nicola Casterton
"Within the 15 years of living in our house, Terry Huggett Developments has under taken a wide variety of sized tasks both indoor and outdoor on our property. Every job has been completed within the quote and time scale given and finished to a high professional standard. Terry always keeps us informed of the progress and any concerns he has over the task. We are always really happy with his work and professionalism."
James Ward & Penny Gill
"When my family and I moved into our 1977 4 bedroom, detached cul-de=sac property, unfortunately it had all the interior design features of a 33 year old property with Kitsch internal features such as a free standing aluminium shower cubicle, marble vanity units, thick pink carpets, flocked wall paper and even a separate rooms one containing a bath with a second containing a wc.
"The house needed its entire interior re-designing and updating to fetch it dragging and screaming into the 21st century, with contemporary finishes, modern appliances and services that a modern family demands.
"Obviously we reserved the largest percentage of our budget for the kitchen and master bathroom, after all we felt the house deserved investment after the abuse and lack of investment it had had to endure for the past 33 years.
"We asked several companies, including some major turnkey bathroom companies as advertised on TV! When Terry, the MD of THD, shared his vision for a modern master bathroom with whirlpool bath, wet room and dimming mood lighting we knew which company we wanted to work with.
"The result is amazing and now one of the focal points in the transformed property."
"I have known Terry Huggett for a number of years, during which time he has done work for both myself and my clients. I have always found him to be a highly professional contractor, whose reliability and honesty is second to none. From property refurbishment to extensions and bespoke new build projects his flair for design and attention to the small details has always stood out."
Surveyor and Valuer
"Terry Huggett and his team have done numerous jobs for us over the years. He has completely transformed our bungalow. Every room has been replastered, new skirting boards, coving, new radiators and doors. He completely revamped our cloak room/wash room in the hall it looks stunning, everyone comments and always ask who did the work.
"He has a good eye for detail and is a perfectionist in everything he undertakes, he advised us when we were unsure about certain things and always pointed out alternatives that would make a difference and he is on the mark when it comes to the latest planning regulations and new innovations he also shares his contacts in the trade for tiles, bathroom fittings etc.
"I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Terry his work is of the highest standard we have never had to call him back to anything."
"We have known Terry for many years and over this time he has completed a number of increasingly larger jobs for us. It’s his attention to detail that had always impressed us, so when my wife and I decided that we wanted to become “Grand Designers” Terry was the natural choice to turn our dreams into a reality.
"It’s an amazingly daunting prospect giving a huge sum of money over to someone you don’t really know, though working with Terry and his team I never once felt my trust was misplaced. As our building knowledge was non existent it was so refreshing to have Terry guiding us through the building process step by step, always on hand to answer the most trivial questions.
"Terry and his team had the vision to turn our ideas into practical solutions, again throughout the build it was Terry’s attention to detail that ensured we always had enough time to make both the big and small decisions that would ensure our build never stood still.
"One of the key reasons for choosing Terry for our build was the ability and skills of his team. From the bricklayers, to the plumbers each was a true expert in their field and I lost count the number of times they saved us making costly mistakes.
"I have recommended Terry and his team countless times in the 4 years that our house has been built and feel that over the time he worked on our build he stopped being an employee and became part of the family."
"I was introduced to Terry Huggett about a year prior to my build commencing, and from that day forward I found him to be passionate and extremely creative about his work. This attribute alone would be enough for me to recommend him to anyone who will settle for nothing less than perfection. He is proud and loves the project he is working on constantly researching and offering ideas and support to achieve something unique and personal.
"The workmanship of all the team is first class and I have utmost respect for everyone of them.
"As our project was relatively large it has taken more than a year to complete the barn conversion and as I have been on site every day, I have seen the way that Terry motivates and breathes positivity. Difficulties are overcome in a very calm, confident and competent manner leaving no stone unturned in looking at the best solutions.
"Terry as a builder is in a league of his own ..."
Judith Brook December
"I have had a number of jobs done by Terry Huggett over the years, and must say his work and attention to detail is second to none. My latest project was a wet room and bathroom rebuild, and with his help and the skill of his team, I can only say it is utterly stunning!!! Little wonder he is in great demand.
"Well worth the extra cost of such a skilled artist."
"THD have carried out numerous small developments on our terrace house over the years, we use THD due to their friendly, innovative service and workmanship that can always be relied upon. We wouldn't use any other firm.
Matt and Nic McMullen
"For us, the POD's all about flexibility. It really is a new living space we can use all year round, whether for entertaining, working, relaxing, or just escaping for some peace and quiet (ours is a busy family home with three generations living together). Working with Terry has been amazing - he's so passionate about helping his clients make the very best of the changes they're making. Seeing the POD take shape over just a few short weeks has been really exciting; nearly as exciting as being the first in the family to use it!"
