Testimonial received from customer...

Our large garden room has just been completed by a very efficient and cooperative team led by Jon. The new build was ready to be installed but we hadn’t had the time to clear a large-enough space for the construction. Despite this, Jon organised one of his team to remove the old shed and this was done with the minimum of fuss. I had also wanted to keep a fairly large tree in the hope that the garden room could be built to accommodate it. However, when the base was being laid it became apparent that this just wasn’t possible. I was going away for a week but Jon organised the removal of the tree at no extra expense whilst I was away. I returned from holiday to find most of the work on the outside had been completed and I was back in time for final discussions on décor. I wanted some changes to the inside paint colour on the windows and to the light bulbs in the spots – both were willingly changed. Snagging was dealt with efficiently, the floor laid finally, and we have moved 
in. Very importantly great care was taken of the rest of the garden during the build. My husband and I have been very impressed with the way the whole project was managed and delivered and have no hesitation in recommending Jon and his team at Southwicks.
