Rob and Lewis were an absolute delight to have around, put workers everywhere to shame and did it all with a sense of humour and kind consideration for us. I can’t praise them highly enough. The building itself will be linked up to the electricity supply today….but it seems to me that so far the quality of the materials and the finished product matches the lads who built it - excellent.”

You have a straightforward, good product which you sell well (loved all the diagrams you sent at the start) and then when it goes up it looks fab. The boys had great attention to detail and the finish is top notch. Rob and Harry were brilliant and it was a pleasure to have them working hard in my garden over 3 weeks. They were super tidy, were polite about my tea and coffee, worked really hard and always came up with a good solution to any problems that arose. A can do attitude is always so much appreciated by us customers and they had that in spades!”
