At Cunney construction ltd the emphasis is very much on quality, project management and especially value for money.
The room4living concept was one which the folks at CCL came up with in response to growing market demands for improved design in terms of function and form, and also for improving the link between the rear garden and the house - an area which we feel does not function correctly in most homes.
The other driver for the development of these designs was cost. Recognising the fact that more and more people are tending towards improving as opposed to moving we felt that smart cost effective design which gave families more living space that functions properly and adds value to their home is exactly what the market is demanding.
