What previous clients have said about Jem's services
Lorna and I were delighted with your design, drawings and support provided for the construction of our family vaulted room. In addition your guidance and site visits to ensure the additional new room was built correctly and is fully compliant with our Local Authority Building Control Regulations was greatly appreciated. Thank you.
J M Clark, Chandlers Ford
We are both very pleased with the extension and associated reconfiguration of the kitchen and dining room, it has transformed the house and how we use it. It brings the house up to date and will make it more saleable when the time comes to move on. Thank you for your time and input into the design and build.
Mr Burrows, South Wonston

Chris D, Salisbury
Now that it is complete many people have commented on how attractive it is and that it has improved the property. It has given a standard 1960s bungalow a more appealing, and uniquely rustic look. Thank-you Jem, we are no longer frightened of the notorious Four Marks winters of six-foot snow-drifts!
