About Us

Over 17 years’ service with Sussex Police

BB Home Solutions was started by James Brotherhood after a long career as a front-line Police Officer with Sussex Police.

James joined Sussex Police initially as a Special Constable and joined full time in 2001. 

After several years on response, he joined the dog unit where he spent 11 years as a professional dog-handler, working with a variety of dogs in different roles.

Before joining the Police, James bought his first house at the age of 19.

 The property had been rented for many years by some dubious tenants and was left in an awful state – suffice to say it needed a lot of work!

Inspired by his father

It was James’s dad Bob who taught and inspired James on his property maintenance journey.

“BB Builders – Just ask, the advice is free”

Bob trained as a cabinet maker before moving into the building trade and establishing BB Builders in 1976.

BB Builders traded successfully in Sussex until Bob retired and to this day, he volunteers at Amberley Museum and Weald and Downland Museum. Bob enjoys making wooden furniture and toys for his four grandchildren.

James says learning from a master craftsman like his father taught him the importance of having an eye for detail and completing every task with precision and care.

“My father taught me well and was the inspiration behind calling my business BB Home Solutions. The skills and work ethic he taught me are the cornerstone of my business, along with the commitment to customer satisfaction.”
