Martin Silcock who runs Tricklebank is passionate about and loves what he does. He is the first to admit that it does not always run smoothly but states that building beautiful homes can be the most difficult angst ridden existence, trying to achieve perfection for yourself and for the client when nothing else will do. He has scoured salvage yards for just the right oak beam with just the right curve, dismantled old unwanted church pews and had his carpenters make fireplace surrounds out of them, tramped around reclaim yards in blistering heat in the Luberon Valley looking for just the right stone for a certain hallway or kitchen and driven his bricklayers to the brink in order to achieve just the right colour of mortar.
Tricklebank have carried out many barn conversions, stable conversions, house renovations, new build homes, period homes, and contemporary homes over the years, they have dismantled mills, barns and houses destined for demolition in order to save the precious materials they hold and re use in new homes. The patina of an old oak cannot be replicated, pine or stone floor have been re-laid in a new home, and they have even sent several containers of 2 ½ “ hand made tudor bricks to California for a client to build a courtyard and stable block as an addition to his home.
When engaged by the client, Tricklebank would prefer to manage projects as the main contractor from demolition and site clearance to handing the keys over to the client on completion Working this way it gives them control over all the elements of the build. This is essential if they are to maintain budgets, timescales and quality.
At Tricklebank, they do not claim to cater for all but do claim to give their all for every project they are involved with, they are a bespoke niche builder of the very finest homes working on a one to one basis with the client to achieve their vision.
They have a saying at Tricklebank that is, “There is only one way and that’s the right way.”
They have a very simple aim, to produce the best, and are proud to be an award winning company for building excellence.
