Brackstone Builders - Garages and Driveways
Whether it’s a brand new design and build project or the conversion of some old buildings for a new use, you can rely on Brackstone Builders of Devizes to come up with imaginative ideas for building your garage. We’ve constructed brand new buildings in villages around Devizes and used featheredge cladding to help them blend with their surrounding; we’ve used reclaimed stone on a project near Trowbridge and used real imagination to turn a collapsing building into a garage and games room in Biddestone. Whatever the project, you can rely on our commitment to quality.
Two bay garage with games room
This job entailed knocking down some unsightly buildings and constructing a two-bay garage with store and games room in concrete block work. To improve the visual impact we incorporated oak beams and used ebony stained featheredge boarding to provide an attractive cladding.
Careful siting and design meant that this improvement provided the additional benefit of altering the outlook from our clients’ property by effectively blocking the view of some rather unsightly, neighbouring, barns.
We also created a shingle access driveway to compete this project.

New Entrance and Heavy Duty purpose made Electric Gates
We replaced an old wooden five-bar gate with a pair of modern, heavy duty, electronic gates.
These imposing gates formed part of a much larger conversion but provide a secure and attractive entrance to the renovated property project above being as part of a larger project. The bricks are hand made Mickelmersh with Ashlar copings and caps.

Stone Garage with Wine Store
The job involved demolishing a number of old stone walls from which we were able to painstakingly reclaim 50% of the stone required for this pretty double garage and store. We sourced the balance of the stone ourselves and mixed it with the existing to give a suitable blend.
The garage was built in a sympathetic style to match a number of barn conversions we had completed 10 years previously for the same client. The walls were built in a solid construction and faced with stone. The roof is formed of old pan tiles while the apron in front is Cerney shingle.
Car Port and Workshop
This was a design and build project to provide a double garage and a large workshop which arose from a direct approach by a client.
Because of its very rural location, it needed to look, in some ways, like an old barn. We helped to design the building, which comprised of a block work shell which we clad in softwood sawn boarding with oak posts for an authentic effect. The roof was formed with second-hand double Roman tiles to match other buildings in the vicinity. The building was designed in such a way that it would be very simple to make this larger in the future, if required.
