We are absolutely delighted with our brand new garden office, and we can't wait to move in! When you first embark on choosing a supplier for your little dream retreat, it's hard to decide whether you ought to opt for a shell supplier and then engage with other contractors to do the fitting and finishing work. But the result of our choice and confidence in Jon's bespoke service, provided by him and his family team of Dave and Sophie, is now there for all to see. Setting an example to all, he turned up promptly when he said he would, and he and his team worked hard and skillfully throughout the week or so that was required to convert raw materials into a beautiful finished product. A very satisfying experience, both for us and for Southwicks, as I know Jon was pretty pleased with the result himself! Thanks again, Jim and Wendy, Alton
