The Croft

Property Renovation & Extension


MJF Electrical were appointed by their client to carry out a complete electrical installation for a stunning period property situated in the Gloucestershire countryside.

The Croft is a detached cottage dating back to the 16th-17th century and retains much of its original charm including beautiful exposed beams.

Alongside an extensive refurbishment of the existing cottage, a large extension was added to the righthand side of the property, both of which required a new electrical design and installation. MJF Electrical proposed the full internal and external power and lighting design to incorporate modern electrical features with the original character and fabric of the building.

We worked closely with our client and local contractor CJ Landscaping
& Groundworks to complete the renovation project.

Once the electrical design was finalised, our team started on the
first fix. This stage involved stripping out the existing electrical system in
the original cottage and installing the new hard-wired electrical infrastructure for the entire build.

Second fix is when the home really started to take shape. The client chose a number of high-end fixtures and fittings to complement the style of the build. We sourced everything to suit their specification including
gorgeous ceiling pendants and classical toggle switches. This style pre-dates the more contemporary rocker switch you see in homes today and fitted more seamlessly into the overall feel of the build.


The client’s vision was achieved and they now live in their beautiful countryside cottage The finished project exudes high quality and the modern electrical elements have been integrated to complement the original period style of the property.

Our work was always executed within the required timescales at each stage of the build and the house was finished to an exceptional quality.

Due to our excellent working relationship and high quality workmanship, the client has instructed us to design and install the complete electrical installation for the planned guest house situated on the grounds of The Croft.
