Moving closer to my family
"After many happy years living in a small village on Dartmoor, the time came for Ivor my husband and myself to move onto the next chapter in our lives and to leave our home, to move closer to our daughter in the picturesque town of Chudleigh.
We bought our new house in an idyllic private little cul-de-sac with some stunning country views, the house was built in the early naughties so modernisation and remodeling was required.
So where to start - a builder was required and so after a number of conversations, Dan Cook Carpentry and Building had been highly recommended, so we commissioned the work.
From the start of the conversation Dan put us completely at ease, it was clear to me that Dan understood my desired end result almost immediately and helped me further visualize what the transformed interior of the house could look like.
Dan also got that the living space he was creating for us was crucial to making this house (which was a downsizing purchase) our own. Indeed he knew that part of the remodeling was creating "Monique's Room" to make me feel really at home.
From start to finish Dan and his team completed the work to the highest of standards and I felt that all of the team were well briefed to deliver their daily work schedule. Dan consistently communicated progress and the tidy working practices respected that this was our home.
The project was completed on time and within the agreed budget. My final comment, however, has to be the amazing craftmanship shown by Dan a skilled carpenter, he transformed a precious piece of French Elm brought back to England from our previous home in France, into an amazing table that now has pride of place in our amazing new living space created by Dan and his team.
We have been extremely lucky to have had Dan complete this transformation of our home!"
