Here, at Steven Cleary Carpentry, we specialise in home renovations in Dublin and Meath.
If you watch property programmes like Homes Under the Hammer, you may have seen church halls, barns or telephone exchanges changing hands. Besides trying to convert the buildings into other uses (i.e., apartments), some decide to demolish the structure and replace them with new build flats or houses.

We at Steven Cleary Carpentry and Building Services favour home renovations and conversions. For example, if you look on the internet or in the newspaper’s Classified Ads pages, they may be a number of barns that have become comfortable homes. Whether the task entails barn conversion or remedial works, we are on the case.


If the building is of historic interest, local authorities may object to its demolition if it has Listed Building status. In this case, opting for house renovations and retaining the original features is the best way forward. It could be a minor part of your home, but its renovation will add value to your property if you wish to sell your home.

Supposing your house has been the victim of a failed DIY project or a disreputable renovator, we can come to your aid. Furthermore, we can help to turn your barn or a former shop unit into a comfortable home. Amid the backdrop of gritted teeth and sorting out planning applications (i.e., a change of use from commercial to residential premises), we at Steven Cleary are up for the challenge.
