The following is a testimonial from one of my many happy customers, for whom I renovated the whole of the bottom floor of their house. This included fitting a large new kitchen, demolishing the bathroom, toilet and box room/corridor; then building a large new bathroom/toilet, fully tiled with a sunken bath and a bespoke cabinet. I also built a large utility room with sink/washing machine plumbed in, nine wall and base units fitted and a new floor.

Upstairs I turned a walk-in wardrobe into and en suite shower room – completely tiled, with shower, toilet and hand basin.

This is what they had to say:

Thank you for all your creativity, craftsmanship, professionalism and dammed hard graft.

Thank you for giving us a beautiful home to enjoy. Here is to the next stage (of restoration)!

We really appreciate all you have done, kindest regards.

Steve had already done some work in our house – flooring and finishing our bathroom – and we were more than happy with the quality and cost of his work.
We asked him to design and build a reasonably traditional garden gate. A new dog required it to be pretty high. Steve organised for the timber, preservative etc. to be delivered. A few days later he arrived to construct the gate and supports.
Given the current (Covid 19) situation, we weren’t in a position to be supportive, but it was soon obvious we weren’t needed.
We were, frankly, amazed that he completed the work in a working day and to a standard we were more than happy with – including setting the post. The gate is remarkably sturdy and will serve us well over the coming years. The timbers have all been treated and I will now have to get out the paint and brushes before the winter sets in
I didn’t mean to go on quite so much and I have never before felt the need to add a review – for anything. However I know that Steve is a skilled and reliable carpenter and will always do his best to fulfil his clients’ needs.
Sorry, forgot to add that we were more than happy with his pricing!
Thanks, Steve and we wish you continued success.
