Our clients approached us for the complete renovation of their cottage – to create a modern family home, whilst retaining the features of this quirky cottage

Our clients were living outside of the area & worked overseas – so A S Baker undertook full management of the project to minimise the input needed by our clients once work commenced – regular emails & calls when necessary allowed us to deliver the cottage to our clients precise requirements despite not being able to be on site….

Ash and his team are incredible builders who have completely renovated our home. As we were living some distance away Ashley project managed every aspect of the build.

They work to an incredibly high standard, are tidy, organised, clean, really hard working and friendly.

Our home looks so beautiful and I cannot thank them enough.

I would recommend them to anyone who needs a great builder.
