S Whittington started the single story extension to the left for a client the next door neighbor had been let down by their builders so S Whiitington completed a two story  dry shell as the client requested. We then went on to fit the single story extension with a new kitchen and a new bathroom

NEW BUILD FRESHWATER TESTIMONIAL
We decided to move from the mainland to the Isle of Wight in November 2011 and immediately purchased an old house with the intention of demolishing it and building a new one in Freshwater. We used word of mouth to identify a potential builder to carry out the construction.  As I was still working at the time, I could only apply limited hours to the project management side of the build, so we had to find a builder who was reliable and needed the minimum of supervision.
We really struck it lucky with Steve Whittington as he was highly skilled, reliable and supportive.  He worked well with the architect (Neil Geddes of Ventnor) and followed the complex plans precisely.  In addition he actively assisted with the sourcing of materials including the timber frame, suitable bricks and reclaimed tiles; I would not have been able to negotiate the prices for these essentials without his help.  In addition Steve has gathered a team of sub-contractors (bricklayers, electricians, plumbers, roofers, etc) who were also skilful and reliable.  During the build we experienced some awful weather but the job still got done on-time.
We would add that the house was planned to meet advanced eco-house standards and is highly insulated and has water-harvesting, heat-recovery and under-floor heating all advanced techniques that Steve and his team coped with superbly.
My wife and I have some experience of builders having extended houses we have owned in the past.  In all these cases we ended up dissatisfied with the work we received, but this never happened with Steve Whittington.  He always came to site when he promised, always answered phone calls and made sensible suggestions for ways around problems.  We recommend him highly.
