Carpentry for refurbishment and extension


Dan deserves Job of the year award because he played such a vital role in bringing our build on in his quiet unassuming way. He did all those jobs that are so necessary for a house to work. Lots of people get rewarded for the glory work..the sparkly stuff..the end product...but what Dan was superb at was all the first fix work and all those often fiddly jobs which involved him making good the bits that didn't quite fit. His workmanship was excellent and the finished quality was perfect. But what he excelled at was being reliable, telling us exactly when he was coming, what he would do, overcoming any tricky issues without fuss and with minimal cost and fitting in around the timetables of other trades that were pretty demanding. He was an extremely tidy worker and his calm nature was an asset in a build that could get manic and tense. It is difficult to find one photo of his work because it has been all over and is often hidden for example much of it was first fix i.e.the underlay and chipboard flooring, building the stud walls. He made cupboards, did skirting, window sills, doorways and did it all without fuss. It was a pleasure to have him working in the house and we are very grateful.
