Helen's work was excellent - I have had so many admiring comments from friends - and she is a pleasure to have around the house. I have recommended her to friends and had glowing feedback from them too.
Helen has done various pieces of 'wood repair work' for me over a number of years. These have ranged from restoring an antique chest of drawers through to making good a plate drying rack which was poorly constructed by someone else in the first place! She has also made from scratch fixtures and items of furniture to order, following to the letter my (exacting !!) size requirements. Her work is excellent. And equally appreciated is her unflagging pleasantness, her communication skills and her reliability. I am also always impressed by how much she knows about other trades which may have a bearing on her work, but which are not her own. This knowledge has been very useful to me and will be to others. In short, Helen is to be treasured!
Helen has built us some fitted shelves and a cupboard in a tricky area using sliding doors. She was really helpful in suggesting design ideas, was efficient with time and materials and we were really pleased with the results.
In the summer of 2007, we asked Helen to make us some shelved, fitted cupboards, to create much needed storage space in two alcoves. Her attention to detail was very impressive, and she was clean and tidy when fitting them at the house. As well as being very professional, she was also a very nice person, which made the job even better! We were so impressed with her work that we subsequently asked her to come back and build us an airing cupboard too, and have recommended her to others.
