My wife and I decided some five years ago to renovate and extend our 3 bedroom semi in Dolphin Street. As is often the case, after consulting with our architect, the project which started out as fairly straight forward extension became a much larger exercise. We ultimately decided to effectively rebuild the house inside its existing ground floor shell and double the original size of the house by building an additional story. Only two of the original rooms were to remain and one of these was substantially changed. We also decided to do a full makeover of the outside areas including landscaping.
The smartest move we made was to engage Chris Parish as our builder. There were many challenges throughout the construction period, as you would expect in a house built some 80 years ago, but Chris managed to deal with all these and continually come up with inovative and clever solutions. The quality of workmanship was outstanding and all of the tradespeople working under Chris’ supervision took pride in their work and delivered far beyond our expectations. This included care and thought from the start of construction throughout the project and following completion.
The finished product is something we are very proud of and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris to undertake building work on small or large projects. In regard to smaller projects we have regularly engaged Chris to carry out work on other rented properties we own. We have done this because we know the work will be done properly, without fuss and at the right price.
Chris is not only very, very good at what he does, he is also honest, trustworthy and reliable – important considerations when you have someone working in your home. My wife and I are happy to expand on this testimonial in person if required. We invite anyone looking to engage Chris to come to our home and see the quality of his work first hand.
