Customer Testimonials

We first met Mark through his involvement in local amateur dramatics, his sunny personality and positive can do approach to life meant we were very keen to get him to quote when we decided to undertake a major extension to our 16th century home. Mark provided a very fair quote – which did turn out to be the most economical – however the deciding factor for us was that he really listened to what we wanted in terms of the style and ambience we were trying to create.  We were very clear that we wanted the extension to blend and match the rest of the house – we did not want a white box on the end – the other builders we approached more or less told us this was impossible. Mark embraced the challenge and I can tell you that no one who visits our home can believe it has been extended – even when we point out exactly what is new they can’t believe their eyes.

As work got underway Mark  was pragmatic and creative in overcoming problems, his local knowledge of where to source high quality materials at the right price and other skilled workers including, carpenters, roofers, plumbers and electricians was invaluable. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, taking a real pride in his work and combining expert knowledge of building with an artistic eye for what works.  What made a real difference was Mark's ability to work with us to design some really interesting features, including  2 inglenooks, uncovering and restoring an original 16th century beamed wall and placing oak beams in the new walls and ceiling as if they too had been there for over 400 years.
