Happy Jubilee Week

We’d like to wish you all a very happy Jubilee week!

Whether it’s street parties or just spending time with the family, we hope you are able to make the most of the extra bank holiday.

We will be closed Thursday and Friday, but will be back on site and in the office on Monday.

Let’s hope the sun joins in the party!

Completed | Extension & Renovation

We recently handed over this stunning farmhouse to it’s owners, following a successful two storey extension and full renovation.

The original part of the house dates back to the 18th century and Overton Limited helped the owners seamlessly blend contemporary design with the history of the farmhouse.

This included a modern kitchen set under a beautiful vaulted ceiling and hotel style bathrooms.

Excellent work from the team all pulling together to ensure the house was ready for moving in day.

Overton starts accepting Bitcoin as payment

We are excited to announce we will be accepting Bitcoin as part of our innovative vision for the future of our Norfolk building company Overton Limited.

Bitcoin is a decentralised digital currency, also known as cryptocurrency, which allows peer to peer transactions to take place worldwide, without an intermediary such as a bank. A bitcoin – currently worth more than £39,000 each – is a currency stored in a digital wallet.

Adam Overton, director of Overton Limited explains why we are taking this pioneering approach.

“In recent years there has been significant growth in the use of cryptocurrency worldwide, not just as investments, but for purchasing product and services too. I believe that by being among the first to open up this new payment channel to our clients it demonstrates how motivated we are to responding to the market and continuing our own growth as a company as we’ll be ahead of the curve.”

“We work a lot in north Norfolk with people moving out of London and I think there are more people down there who invested in it early on. They might not necessarily want their Bitcoin just sitting in their digital wallet and increasingly it will be used more transactionally.”

“There are many advantages of using cryptocurrency for the construction industry and our clients,” added Adam. “Established payment systems are slow and expensive, whereas a cryptocurrency transaction can be complete in seconds. The transparent nature of cryptocurrency is also an appeal to many. It’s exciting to us to embrace this new technology. You can buy a car in Bitcoin, so why not a house and renovations?”

With an office based in historic Heydon, a growing support team and projects spanning the width and breadth of Norfolk, we are looking forward to the future.

Adam continued “Norfolk holds an eternal appeal, with many people wanting to live here; be it to relocate, retire or renovate. The slower pace of life is what draws many people here, but we aren’t planning on standing still.”
