Future Shapes

  • Kitchen to kitchen/diner, downstairs wc, bifolds

    It was a pleasure dealing with Peter and his team from start to finish and we couldn’t be happier with the work that they did. I was impressed with Peter’s previous work and we developed a good rapport from the first meeting and I felt that I could trust him with the work. He was clear about the detail of the work that needed doing upfront and his quote was itemised to reflect what each element would cost. The work was done on time and of a high quality and Peter was responsive at all times to any questions or concerns we had. He also made great suggestions of how we could do things better and was open to our ideas and realising our dream. His team were punctual, friendly and took care of the house ensuring the work that they did was of a high standard at all times and attention to detail which really has made a difference now that the project is completed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Future shapes to anyone and would certainly use them again.

  • Kitchen diner knock-through and full refurbishment

    Very happy with Peter and his team.
    Our job was a complete rework and part rebuild of a 1930s/ 19080s kitchen extension involving demolition, structural work, electrics.
    The team were all polite and professional and got the job done exactly to their advertised programme. Communication and change control was mostly effective and issues on site were passed on immediately. Peter will work with you to help define the brief and cost plan through his pricing breakdowns which can be essential on small but potentially complex jobs.

  • Remove & replace front door, frame & glass panel above

  • 2 Bedroom Flat renovation - several jobs required

  • 3-bed semi refurbishment

    Peter and his team took on our full home refurbishment with much enthusiasm and commitment throughout. Peter broke down each element of the job with a clear costings structure and this was consistently referred to at various stages of the project. Peter and his team were able to complete all jobs required, including the removal of chimney breasts, re-plastering and re-wiring of the whole property and new kitchen and bathroom fittings to a high standard. Peter was also able to provide very good recommendations, including those for our new windows which have been also completed to a very good standard.
    Peter and his team were very tidy and completed the job in excellent time.
    I would highly recommend Peter and his team for future projects.

  • House Refurbishment

    Very good builder. Peter made an extraordinary effort to complete things to time and accommodate our changes in specification as we progressed the works.
    Peter has a great team behind him and we were very impressed by the number of people he coordinated and how quickly the works were completed.
    We highly recommend E17 Carpentry and Building and feel they are great value for money.

    Peter & colleague were great,cant thank him & My builder enough for HERO PROJECT...Thank you very much..Merry Xmas & New year.

  • Redecorate living room

    Piotr has completed an excellent job on the refurbishment of my living room. I found him to be very clear about what was possible, and he guided me very well as to what would work and what I should avoid. The quality of the work is excellent, and he was very diligent in communicating along the way as to what was happening.
    I placed a lot of trust in him, as I had to be out of the property while he and the team worked.
    I would certainly recommend Piotr without hesitation.

  • 2 bed flat renovation in Leytonstone

  • A quick house overhaul needed!

  • 1). Install fitted wardrobe; 2). Remove partition wall

    Peter and his team did a great job. He is 100% professional, reliable and punctual and he maintained excellent communications with me throughout the job. I had a stud board wall knocked out, a lovely open-plan study area created and a pair of large fitted wardrobes put in to a bedroom to replace some old ones. All the work was completed efficiently and to a high standard. I particularly appreciated the fact Pater used three/four people to complete the whole job in three days, rather than one/two people doing it over a longer period. I recommend him and his team most highly.

  • Replace floor and install kitchen & Bathroom

    We would highly recommend E17 Carpentry and Building as we were extremely pleased with the job they completed on our renovation project, with all work being completed to a high standard. Peter (Piotr) and his team were courteous and profession throughout. They worked in well organized and tidy way, cleaning up as much as possible at the end of each day. Peter provided excellent communication via site meetings, email and text, to ensure that we were aware of progress and could work through any issues and changes with him. He made lots of good suggestions about how to address problems as they arose, so we could resolve them together in an effective and efficient way. This resulted in work being completed well within schedule. We would definitely employ his services again.

  • New kitchen, bathroom, floor and gas installation

  • full flat re fit

    We were very happy with the work that Peter and his team did. We had our kitchen, living room and 2 bathrooms refurbished with new flooring throughout our flat. They completed all of the work within the time agreed and to a very high standard. They were great at bringing our ideas to life but also very good at suggesting what would work best and very importantly look the best! We would definitely use Peter again and would highly recommend him to anyone else.

  • Repairs to wooden conservatory

    Piotr and his team carried out repairs to my wooden conservatory and they were brilliant. They were quick, efficient, professional and tidy. They were flexible when needed and their fee was very reasonable. I would not hesitate in recommending E17 Carpentry and Building.

  • Flat renovation-various services needed!

    Peter was wonderful to work with. He went above and beyond to make our vision a reality. This was our first flat, and we were on a tight budget, Peter was invaluable in guiding us on ways to maximise what we could do with what we had. He was in constant contact, and always kept us up to date, as well as answered any questions we had promptly. He decorated all rooms, refinished the bathroom, found a room that was previously walled in and turned it to a closet, and redid the kitchen floor (not to mention countless details that we would have been oblivious to without him). We will definitely use Peter on redoing our kitchen in the new year, and look forward to working with him again!

  • Boiler cupboard

    I am so happy with my new boiler cupboard. Great work, good price and two pleasant and helpful guys, Peter and Sebastian. I have asked them to quote for another job as I am so pleased with this one. They were a pleasure to have around and even helped move my old fridge freezer. Highly recommended.

  • fit 20 sqm of engineered wood floor + replace 5 doors


    Hired Peter for laying the floor, when he turned up he said that he had another job in the afternoon and he wanted out asap. This was the start, he looked out of breath and then he asked me to help to bring upstairs the flooring, I told him that I have knee pain and I was not going to carry loads upstairs, his answer was "GET OUT OF MY WAY" and he carried on. When I challenged him asking if he could do a good job in such a rush he become aggressive and told me I was a bloody moaner. That was it.
    He obviously does not know that he is entering people homes and he has to pay a certain respect to his client. His rushed attitude made me think of a rushed job. I would recommend avoiding hiring at all cost him since he fact indicated above.

    Future Shapes's reply:

    At the day I`ve priced the job room was empty and I`ve been told there`ll be no1 working in house.I turns up to do the job, there where things to move from bedroom and 2more guys coming to work. Is hottest day of year(25C at 8am)I went 6 times to loft with my tools and floor. I`ve been sweating.asked owner if he`s able to help take the flooring upstairs as packs are over 2m long. He agreed but after 5 secs changed his mind. I asked if he can get out of hallway so I can take flooring upstairs ( did not say "get out of my way")Before I started floor owner said dont want bad job and dont want me to do the job. How you can judge the job before is started ??!!I took my tools back to the owner been shouting from window profanities to me as I left.

  • Painting, lay floors, fit kitchen, bathroom, wiring

    Really recommend Peter and his team. They provided the work and creativity for the renovation of my first home: they did a full rewire, plumbing job, installed a kitchen, laid beautiful chevron floors, painted the flat throughout and built a bookcase for me. I was really impressed with the attention to detail, the communication of changes, developments and costs, and their general professionalism, efficiency and skill. Peter is an excellent project manager and I felt in good hands throughout the 5 weeks he worked on my home. Can't recommend him/them enough and hope to have the pleasure of using them again!

    I would highly recommend Peter and his team. They did an excellent job refurbishing our whole house. They had to do everything from new wiring and plumbing, to fitting 2 new bathrooms, a new kitchen, replacing the rear wall with glass doors, and decorating throughout the property inside and out. Peter is extremely diligent, especially about costs - he provides receipts for all the materials that are bought and is constantly doing his best to save you money. He was also an excellent project manager, keeping the refurb on track and delivering on time and on budget. We will definitely use him again, and will definitely recommend him to everyone we know.

  • Doors and skirting

  • Duples Refurbishment In Bethnal Green/ Shoreditch

    Peter, was the most direct of all the builders I considered for the job. The work was done on schedule. He listened to what was required for the job and helped deliver.

    The project was fairly substantial, a complete refurbishment and some structural updates to the property. Installing and remodelling a new bathroom and renovating existing flooring upstairs and installing new flooring downstairs as well as updating a second bathroom . A new heating system was installed and an old redundant system removed.

    Peter managed to source many of the materials required at competitive prices, as well as managing the team that he brought in to complete the job.

    I would gladly and hope to work with peter again in the future.

  • Loft Hatch and Ladder installation and opening

    Piotr was very polite and friendly and offered good alternatives to my initial suggestion.

    My initial suggestion was not practical and he offered good logical advice which I agreed to go with.

    I'd recommend Piotr to anyone and would consider using him again for any similar works in the future.
