Building your dream home is an exciting journey, a once in a lifetime experience for some but it can also be very daunting if you have never done it before but when you know you have someone like James to manage and oversee your project for start to finish it puts you at ease and takes the stresses away and makes it a more relaxed, enjoyable and exciting journey. Right from the very start to even purchasing the site, James was able to guide us step by step as to the stages we would have to go through from starting ground works, to arranging the Builders, Electricians, Painters, Plumbers, Tiler, Heat Recovery Team and to the end house completion. You don’t need to worry about materials not arriving or trades contractors turning up late, it’s all taken care of for you which is so reassuring. He works alongside some extremely talented Tradesmen. James also offers his own input on how he would suggest layouts and any concerns you may have throughout the process.
If anyone is looking for someone to project manage your dream home from start to finish, we really could not recommend James Hall Joinery enough.
James joined us at the monthly planning meetings and provided valuable input on materials and suppliers. He also helped us understand the benefits of Icynene insulation which was a new concept for us and has proved invaluable in meeting our brief of an eco-friendly, well insulated house with minimal heating costs. There were some materials that we knew we wanted to use and James was very flexible about embracing our choices whilst also being able to let us know if he had serious doubts about something. The project ran on-time and to budget with the build starting in April 2015 and being ready for us to move in 9 months later. James ran the financial side in an organised manner and there were no surprises in the invoices. James also ensured that we knew what decisions were needed when as the build progressed which greatly alleviated any stress points on our side.
We had an objective of completing the project with the same architect and builder that we started it with and with everyone being happy with both the detail of the build and the end result. James and his team played a key part in meeting that objective. Indeed, they were all a delight to work with and although we have no intentions of repeating a build project that is entirely due to be 100% satisfied with what we have got. I have no hesitation in recommending James and his team to anyone that is embarking on a build project.
