Stress free, economic construction of 'awesome' end of terrace timber frame house

14 October 2013

Testimonial for SC4 Carpenters Ltd, re: Wash Common Newbury

Dear Conrad,

We would like to thank SC4 Carpenters for the efficient, stress free and economic construction of our new two bedroom timber frame home in Wash Common, Newbury.

The groundwork's for the property started at the beginning of May and we were able to move in by mid August. By comparison, a nearby property was having a two storey extension constructed in the traditional manner. The building works started during the same week as our groundwork's and is still not completed. We are in no doubt which method we prefer.

A passer-by commented yesterday that the house was ‘awesome’ and completely blended in with the existing terraced houses.

We would also like to compliment SC4 on their honest communication with us, which enabled us to make our plans without any concerns of late delivery of the project.

We would not hesitate to recommend SC4 & Silvaframe to anybody considering a new build.

Yours sincerely,

Liz & Bruce
