Building my new home!
05/06/20

I embarked on our new project to build our dream home near Staverton South Devon. I set about finding a builder to help me complete this large project and I was recommended to speak to Dan Cook from Dan Cook Carpentry and Building LTD, through a contact at my local golf club. When I spoke to Dan, I understood why he had been recommended so highly, as I instantly observed a builder who understood his potential client's needs and built brilliantly on our plans with some innovative ideas since we instructed the work to him. I have relied on and trusted in Dan's advice as the project has proceeded.

From the moment Dan and his team arrived on site they have been extremely professional and attentive to our needs, Tom and George deserve particular praise for their continued focus to deliver the project to Dan's high standards. Dan's ongoing communication of the progress he was making was second to none and particularly when on site I valued our catch-ups, indeed the interactions have forged a friendship which I fully value.
The workmanship and in particular carpentry skills have been particularly impressive. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan and his team, indeed he is now working on our second project by building our garage and gym.

Well done Dan and the team.

Having travelled the world we now have our perfect house back at home!
30/04/19

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!

Transformation of our home after a building disaster! - Winter 2018

21/12/18
"My wife Tara and I had for a long time, wanted to give our beautiful townhouse in the centre of Chudleigh a modern makeover after living in it for over a decade. We wanted a modern space that could accommodate our children's needs too. Our plans included removing a wall to create open plan living and a new kitchen.

Initially, we had instructed a builder to create our dream living space, once the work had started very quickly our dream became a nightmare as the builder delivered shoddy and dangerous workmanship. This led to the builder leaving the job and us in the lurch, an extremely stressful situation!
We were left with a supporting wall removed and no adequate structural support.
I was desperate to find someone to help us quickly! I had heard locally about Dan and I gave him a bell to plea for some help.

Dan, immediately came round and quickly made the building safe and although couldn't start the work straight away, he amazingly within a few short weeks had moved his busy work schedule around to accommodate our work - this was amazing client care!

Dan also looked at the original plan of works and following discussions about how he would complete the work, Dan made some expert suggestions in the design of the kitchen giving us more workspace and opening up the living room by keeping the amazing chimney breast exposed, we would never have visualized how these small tweaks, could make such a massive change to the look of the original design.

Whilst on site Dan's team were polite, courteous, clean and tidy and they knew every day what was expected of them, because of the detailed communication Dan shared with them during the build and it was all completed within the timescales committed to.

I would 100% recommend Dan and his team, not only did they save the day and get us out of a dire situation, the quality of workmanship and attention to detail was world class. 10 out of 10 Dan!"
