We have commisioned the services of Ian and his team for two projects over the last couple of years.

First was the design of a new garage, entrance way ad road frontage to our 1920’s bungalow. We wanted to the modernise the front of our house and bring it into this century. From the initial site visit, brain storm and design through the completion of the actual building work we could not fault the work his team did. We achieved exactly what we set out to do and had envisaged in our minds. All out neighbours took a keen interest in what we were doing and the compliments were very forthcoming with the final result. This is a true testament to Ian’s vision and design work. He ticked every box with what we asked. We have since sold that house, and the real-estate agent commented that one of the main reasons there was so much interest in the property was is street appeal and the modern look to a bungalow of that era.

We then went about designing and building our own home. Ian was a logical choice for this design work as well. And once again everything came up trumps. I bought him a very basic outline and design brief of what we wanted, and he really listened and understood the brief. The house has come out fantastic and the support and help needed through the design stage and then the build stage by Ian was outstanding. We are constantly getting comments on how the home flows so easily and how spacious it is. One of our key wishes was to have lots of storage without losing space in living areas. He has achieved this no end, and almost everyone who has been through our home is very envious of the amount of storage we do have. We also had many comments from the tradespeople working on the house as to how well it was designed and flowed. These guys do not pass these comments lightly so once again this is a big compliment to the work Ian has done.

Ian is a very approachable guy. He is very practical with his ideas and how to match these with yours and your expectations and wants. He is also very conscious of your project budget which is ever so important in the initial stages of design. I have already recommended Ian and his team to others and will continue to do so. We are also looking forward to working with Ian ourselves in the future.

Ian and his team completed the design and plans of my new home in 2009. It was my first new home build and I was apprehensive about the whole process. Those fears were soon gone, and I thoroughly enjoyed the design and build stages.

Naturally there were many amendments to the plan prior to the build as Ian and I tweaked ideas and concepts, but this became an enjoyable process and I am very happy with the finished product. There is nothing in the design of the house that I would change if given the chance again - it has exactly the style and flow that I had pictured.

I also appreciated the ongoing advice that Ian offered during the building stage, particularly when decisions were required.

I have no hesitation in referring Ian and his team for a high quaility building project.
