This week –

Been a busy week on-site and more progress made

Above you can see the sunroom in plot 5 taking shape with large floor tiles from Juncton8 tiles being laid, this is in full view and access of your kitchen giving you a light and airy space to cook/entertain whilst being able to keep an eye on your family in the garden.  The luxury of having two sets of patio doors by Custom Precision Joinery when open on those sunny days will enable you to incorporate your garden into your living space, giving you so much space and great for entertaining.


The hallway is also starting to look good with beautifully tiled floors and the luxury of underfloor heating. Our tiled floors will give you an elegant and clean feel, but with warmth in those colder months.

Plot 6 now has the slate being fitted on the double garage roof, as you can see this house has a large footprint, with 5 bedrooms and 5 ensuite bathrooms.

Slates used are reclaimed from Delamere School and called green westmorland.



This week –

Plots 5 and 6 facing the front of the development are looking superb, scaffolding has been mostly removed and waiting for render to be applied to plot 6.

As you can see above the windows, doors and conservatories made by ‘Custom Precision Joinery’ have been in fitted, by our expert joiners CT joinery.

In the next few weeks, you will truly be able to see these properties become a dream home.

All properties have been named personally by Cobnut Homes, and are related to trees, please see below.









The week began with a hive of activity. On visiting the site today, so much was going on, I discovered these wonderful, reclaimed Chimney pots that will be used on each of our homes, all in perfect condition from Martin Edwards Roof Rite. These Chimney pots are of superb quality and will give our homes that edge of individuality and style that you don’t get on other modern builds.

Our Forest Edge Development has all the comforts and running costs of a new build but the style and sophistication of more traditional homes.

All our doors and windows have been supplied by ‘Custom Precision Joinery’ together with superb quality hardware from the Anvil range to complement.



The bespoke staircase has been fitted in Plot 6 giving a spacious entrance to this home. The kitchen cupboards have also almost been fully fitted and premium quality worktop will complete the look.



Below you can see the plan of the kitchen for Plot 6 showing plenty of space to cook and prepare food.



The kitchen instillation has started in Plot 6 as you can see in the above picture. This will be such a lovely large space to cook and entertain your guests.

Plot 14 is currently having its roof tiled today.

This week we can see that Plot 7 and 8 now have had their frames put up from Lowfield Timber Frames Ltd and are ready for their roof to be installed.

Windows by Custom Precision Joinery have been fitted into plot 5 today in a gorgeous Fired Earth ‘Blue Gray’ paint finish to match doors and Fascia Boards. These colours will vary in different houses on our build.

More updates coming next week, we will let you know prices and end of build dates as soon as we have this information for you, so please be patient with us.

This week our first two builds plot 5 and plot 6 have been tiled completely on the ground floor with exception of the lounge area.

Here you can see a selection of some of our tiles that we have chosen for our properties. All the tiles are of exceptional quality and style and will be fitted with exact precision.

Tiles have been purchased from Junction 8 tile and stone, and fitted by Steve Baskerville and his team.

The bathroom tiles have now been chosen and are currently been fitted, floor to ceiling.

Each bathroom has been hand chosen, type and colour of tile picked to ensure colour flows throughout the house.

Each shower is complimented with a recess for your toiletries, and jacuzzi baths fitted.  Baths are boxed and tiled in to create a smooth line.  Grohe showers are fitted throughout and 8 jet whirlpool baths – all fitted by Dylan Finnie Plumbing and Heating and his team.

This week the external builds of Plots 12 and 13 are taking shape. Internal works including plaster boarding are well under way in Plots 5 and 6.

Plot 5 has slightly taken the lead in terms of work in progress.

All internal rooms have been plastered, ready for tiling and painting to commence. Next week we will be able to give you a glimpse of the luxurious tiles that have been chosen and fitted by our skilled workmen.

These builds are fast becoming spacious beautiful homes.

As our Prestigious Forest Edge Development progresses, the first two homes are emerging and you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful four and five bedroom homes from the roadside.
You can truly get an idea of the size and the style of these properties now.
These homes are being built, using Imperial handmade bricks in reclamation shire blend. The bricks have undergone a special aging process to produce their characterful reclamation finish.
The impressive slate roof tiles on the plots facing the road have been salvaged from the Old Delamere School, that once stood on this site
Our experienced tradesmen have commenced internal works which includes underfloor heating throughout that is powered by Air Source Heat Pumps from Vaillant.

Each home will be fitted with Air source heat pumps, these have become a very popular choice for homeowners who would like to install renewable energy solutions in their home.

This form of heating is one of the most economical and eco-friendly heating solutions on the market. It will help homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint along with significantly reducing their heating bills.


Why we chose this Air Source Heat Pumps to heat our homes

The main advantage of air source heat pumps and boilers is that they safeguard homeowners against fluctuations in energy prices. They use the environment to generate 75% of the heating and hot water needs for your home.

These systems will give you a wonderfully toasty and efficient home and leave you much less vulnerable to the ever-rising costs of heating in your home.


WundaSmart Thermostat

Because we chose such an innovative heating supply, we needed to match it with an equally sophisticated thermostat. This system lets you set the temperature in any room or zone, giving you superior comfort and reduces your energy bills and emissions. You can use the WundaSmart app on your phone to control all your heating system.  Even with there is no internet there is no loss of service so you can continue controlling your heating with the manual controls or let the system carry on with its schedule.  Your data is stored in the system Hub and cannot be sold or analysed for advertising or data collection unlike some other system providers
