“Renovation work on an old building or new building work in ones existing property is always fraught with thousands of opportunities for things to go wrong! Despite warnings from Kevin McCloud of “Grand Designs” fame (and others) many of us still attempt it! It is especially difficult if one is overseas at the time and therefore not able to be closely involved. Also not knowing the builder you are about to entrust your life savings to with a request to make your house dreams come true is a bit of a risk (to put it mildly!).

We need not have worried. Scott Johnstone and his team of fine workmen were all that could have been hoped for. They arrived promptly each morning and got stuck straight into the work (we knew this because unbeknown to Scott the neighbours were keeping a close eye on proceedings!) The job progressed on time and importantly to budget, in association with the surveyor who was employed to manage the project as we were away.

When we finally returned from overseas towards the end of the build/conversion we were delighted with the very high standard of working, the meticulous attention to detail delivered by Scott and his team – from bookcases to kitchen to shelves and doors to insulation, plumbing, electrics and window fitting. Scott project managed all of the associated painters, electricians, plumbers, delivery of wood, paint, tiles etc etc with ease and sensible timings to allow completion to be on time – and to budget.

We can honestly say that if you want a good job done to a very high standard we have no hesitation in recommending Scott and his dedicated team. We are more than satisfied and are delighted with our totally transformed home. In short, “highly recommended”, one could not find better.
