Our project was to extend and modernise a 1970s detached property, which although structurally sound, required extensive work to update the external appearance of the property and the internal layout, to transform it into a contemporary home fit for our family.
The plans included an extension over the existing garage to make a master bedroom, new en-suite bathrooms and family bathroom, new kitchen/dining room, new oak staircase, a complete new heating system, new fireplace with wood burner, a new lighting system throughout, plastering and painting of all rooms. Externally, we commissioned a new slate roof, the replacement of hanging tiles with wooden cladding, new windows and doors, So effectively a new house!
Our choice of builder in ASP Murphy could not have been better. Steve Murphy’s organisational skills in ensuring that all of his tradesmen arrived at the right time allowed for a perfect flow of work with no hold ups allowing the project to be completed on time and within budget. The term tradesmen in not used lightly here as the team that Steve used, including roofers, electricians, carpenters, plumbing and heating engineers, decorators and tiler all worked to an extremely high standard, offered us advice where needed which would improve the house, and worked with us to achieve excellent results.
Steve’s own team also worked to a very high standard and were very flexible in handling any small changes that we requested during the build. We were kept completely up to date on a daily basis with what was happening.
The overall result is absolutely outstanding and exceeded our expectations. This is in no small part due to Steve’s professionalism and the pride that he and his team take in their work. We would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone with a similar project.
