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!"

After a lifetime of travelling the world and living in Australia, France and across the UK my husband Roger and I have settled back in Devon in our wonderful 1930's bungalow, that has been totally transformed after we were recommended a brilliant builder Dan Cook!


When we found our property it was clear we had to modernise it and make it bigger for our needs, having asked around a friend said you should get Dan Cook to come and have a look. I was also told I should get more than one quote, but after meeting Dan, the confidence he gave Roger and me through his understanding of our needs including timescales and budget, we commissioned Dan and his expert team to do the work. It was the best decision we made, Dan's expert eye and the suggestions he made to our build was well received and the craftsmanship of Dan and his team was truly world class. Dan also gave us great advice about where to purchase our beautiful kitchen.

Dan completed our precious house transformation on time and on budget. We asked Dan to do a few extra jobs on top of the build such as our wonderful terrace at the back of the house, this was added to the work schedule with no fuss and delivered on time.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dan Cook Carpentry and Building Ltd and in fact, I have recommended him to my daughter!

Garage conversion that transformed family life!

My wife Kristy our two boys and I, from Chudleigh in South Devon, moved into our 1980's detached property in December 2017. It was a dream come true for us, moving to a spacious family home that needed some modernisation but one we could put our stamp on, so I set about finding a great building company to help me. I count myself very grateful that I met Dan Cook amongst a number of builders who were quoting to transform our house into our dream property.

The first thing that I noticed about Dan was the empathy and enthusiasm that he had for our project. At an early stage in our conversations, he showed a level of detailed technical knowledge and sound methodologies that gave me real confidence in Dan's building know how. He provided a detailed quote, not an estimate as others did and this also gave us the confidence that our hard earned budget would cover the work needed to extend and transform our living space into an open plan haven of light and space.

Once on site, Dan's tidy and respectful team delivered the build within the time frame specified to a very high standard of craftsmanship, often surpassing my expectations of what I thought was going to be delivered and all overseen daily by Dan.

The communication with Kristy and myself about the progress being made was excellent, I really felt we had a first class project manager on site and what we valued most was Dan's honesty and straightforward approach when he felt there was an easier or better way to deliver the build. He took the stress out of dealing with suppliers and the local authority, this really helped during the build as we are such busy people, we had limited time to get involved.

Living through this major project was also made easier due to the extra efforts Dan's team went to, to keep the site spic and span and with two small children running around this really was an added bonus.

The finish was perfect and we love our new living environment and it really does bring a smile to my face when I am at home living in our - new house- Dan created a wonderful extension, new kitchen, hallway and study all delivered within our agreed timescales and budget.

I have no hesitation to highly recommend Dan Cook Carpentry and Building LTD the customer experience was excellent and they have created our dream home for us and our boys- Thank you Dan!"
