Testimonials

‘David's creativity transformed what had been a run down cold and unwelcoming house into a warm and welcoming home.

We had ideas on what should be done when we first met David, but he took the thinking to a whole new level helping us create an outstanding transformation.

He was involved with the project from start to finish, and this involvement ensured work was completed to specification.

This was important as we were based 200 miles from site.’

‘From negotiating the planning minefields to ensuring the highest standards of craftmanship, David's determination and arttention to detail paid dividends. I warmly recommend him.

David achieved a great design using a mix of traditional materials and modern technology - a home that not only meets my requirements but adds interest to the village landscape.

It was a pleasure working with David, his positive attitude helped overcome the inevitable problems that occur in any building project.’

‘I first met David in 2004, when I, as part of a team, was looking for an architect to help us with a school project to build a sports hall. The school was Wynstones School, a Steiner Waldorf school in Gloucestershire and the project was defined by two important criteria, namely that it had to be built on a tight budget and to be constructed as much as possible by the wider school community.

When considering how the large building was to be constructed we were introduced to a timber frame builder, Henry Russell, who proposed using a Belfast truss and timber frame. He recommended using an engineer with extensive knowledge of timber frame building and he, in turn, referred us to David.

From the start David enthusiastically adopted our project, with its rather unconventional approach, and over the next couple of years worked up a design that allowed us to build the hall in the way we wanted. The adoption of a community build process, despite the inherent risks attached, turned out to be both effective and very rewarding for the school. The sense of achievement once the building was completed was immense, and the design has proved to be a great success in terms of its usability and its appearance.

The brief was a demanding one and we were fortunate to have been introduced to David, as he enabled us to achieve our objectives in a considerate and cooperative way.’
