Job description

I am looking to create an additional bedroom over an attached garage and also partially convert the back half of the garage into a study room whilst extending the front half and using it for storage.
Architect drawings are complete.
Planning permission has been granted.

Started our extension in September 2014, promised to have it finished in 8-10 weeks. It is now July 2015 and Darren has not shown up since February 2015. The work that was done has turned out to be be poor, subsequent tradespeople have had to undo much of the previous work he carried out due to floors not being level, windows and door frames being sloped, plumbing being of a poor standard, garage roof timbers and brickwork being uneven. Despite paying Darren an extra £4200 on top of the original quote to get the job done we were left with a shell of an extension partially roofed with exposed timbers.
List of work not completed:
Garage roof not done.
Fascias not fitted, leaving wood exposed.
Plumbing not done.
Electrics not done.
Drainage/ guttering half done.
Make good the driveway that was pulled up, not done.
Shower room left unplastered.
En-suite not fitted.
Flooring not done.
No staircase built.
Missing internal door.
Holes left in both external and internal walls.

My experience has found Darren to be untrustworthy and unprofessional in his approach to work and the standard of work done.
