Pi Productions Needs YOU!

The TV Producer who created “Grand Designs” is looking for people who are building their dream homes in beautiful countryside, from whole new builds to ambitious extensions to unusual conversions, with big or small budgets.  Pi Productions, responsible for “Dream Kitchens and Bathrooms with Mark Millar” and “Make a New Life in the Country with Ben Fogle”, say:

“As very experienced property TV producers, we are excited to show what’s new and innovative in house building and renovation, and we are particularly pleased that the National Self Build Renovation Centre are helping us by getting the word out. We want to show the exciting variety of exciting dream homes and lives people are creating, and inspire people to design their own dream homes.”

Introducing our New Doccia Pink Show Tray!

Visit our bathroom showroom in Bristol and see the new pink shower tray. Pink not your thing? Each Doccia tray is available in an assortment of colours made of a stone composite material that can be cut down to suit several bathroom spaces. The trays also come with a flush mount waste and can be installed level to the floor, semi recessed or above the floorboards. The wall panels are also made of the same stone composite material which can also be matched to the same colours, allowing a degree of symmetry to the bathroom designs.
