Happy Building

  • Turn a custom made shed/outbuilding into a garden room

  • Relaying drive, new front wall and gates

    Valter and Jenny from Happy Building kept me informed throughout the project, any changes were thoughtfully considered and implemented in a timely way. The quality of the finished project was great and I would not have any reservations in using Happy Building or recommending them.

  • Extension to ground floor of bungalow

  • Two storey extension and house refurbishment

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Happy Building. My project was a two storey extension and complete refurbishment of a house that had barely been updated since the 1950’s. From our opening meeting we built up an excellent relationship with Valter and this continued through the entire build. The work started on time and over a six month project only ran a couple of weeks over the scheduled end date which is pretty impressive. We were lucky to have Brigen as our foreman – he’s hugely experienced and nothing was too much bother for him. I’d be lying if I said there weren’t ups and downs over the course of the build but that’s to be expected; the end result is fantastic and we’re so thrilled to now be living in our dream home. Thank you!

  • Bathroom conversation

  • Loft conversion and garage conversion

  • Knock through wall/kitchen/bathroom/loft

    Valter was very impressive on his initial visit with some exciting ideas for the house improvements and we had no hesitation in choosing Happy Building above the other two building firms who quoted.
    Having signed off on the budget and scope of work, Valter's team of builders arrived. We were hugely impressed with the skill, experience and work ethic of the team; the fact that they arrived early each morning smiling underlined the "Happy Building" epithet; Jarek, the site foreman, had an especially cheery demeanour.
    The work involved stripping the walls back to bricks, removing walls, reinforcing foundations, plastering, extending the bathroom and removing one bedroom to create a large ensuite bedroom. The latter certainly would not have been done without Valter's vision and patience in explaining how it would look.
    We were able to deviate from the original plans without any problem which was very important in achieving the final look which we had desired. Valter was very careful in sticking to time and budgets which I had never experienced before with builders.
    The kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms, living room and hallways were finished to the highest possible specification within our budget. There were one or two small features which, with hindsight, we would have improved such as door handles and shower fittings, however this was down to us not specifying exactly what we wanted. These are very minor details and a tiny part of the overall picture.

    Happy Building is converting my garage into a studio room which involves digging out the concrete floor, laying a new polished concrete floor with underfloor heating, insulation, damp proofing, new brickwork, doors and windows and a new roof with a large lantern light, new plumbing and electrics and the installation of a shower and toilet. We are about half way through the building work and so far I am delighted with everything that has been done. The team are extremely hard working, helpful and their work is to a high standard. Valter and Florin are helpful, adaptable and a pleasure to deal with. They have dealt very efficiently with any unexpected issues and have stuck to their quote. They always arrive on time, deal with any issues or emails straight away and the work is on schedule.

    Happy Building carried out a full house refurbishment to high standards. I found them to be punctual, tidy, respectful, quick and very easy to talk to. If anything they are too quick! The work carried out is exactly what we wanted and on a few occasions some alternatives were discussed that were actually better both practically and aesthetically. Highly recommend. They are a pleasure to have around.
