About

I started out 30 years ago as a carpenter working on the building sites, working with architects, engineers, i then progressed onto working alongside other trades, plastering, plumbing, tiling, etc. expanding my skills, i now work for myself, i design, plan and complete all my jobs myself. I have found the best thing about having one man on the job i stay focused on the design which does not get lost when you have a multitude of men coming through the door plus the job does not get held up waiting for a trade to arrive.
I have never advertised my business, all my work comes via word of mouth, just ordinary folk passing me on because i did a nice job in their home and listened to what they wanted.
I love my job, it`s just a bonus to make a living doing what i love doing, looking at the bigger picture and putting something forward which no one else has thought of but makes their job just that little bit better, nothing is ever too much trouble at all.
I am very lucky to have worked for some great people.

Great job done on refitting our en-suite

We waited a long time to get Steve's services. All his reviews were great and we were sure he would do a good job. It turned out to be a complicated bit of work and he had to use all his skills to sort out problems as they arose. He was very good at making suggestions to improve things as he went. Steve would say he is not the fastest worker because he does all the trades himself and he is always looking for perfection, but if you are patient he will do a very good job. Most days he worked very long hours into the evening to get bits of work finished. Keep plying him with cups of tea and he will be happy. We are very thrilled with our new en-suite.

He was very quick to respond and setup a time to both view the job & a date to work on. He was incredibly friendly and his work was very clean and did exactly what I needed. I greatly appreciated his thorough checks after the work was done to ensure quality. I will be hiring him again.

Thank you Jonathon it was a pleasure to help you both out, I know how busy you are so it was a big surprise to see a review so quickly! It is also really good to help someone out in my neighbourhood so when you next need me, I am here...
Most helpful person ever
I’m moving home and need the bathrooms renovated and didn’t know where to start. Steve took me through all the dos and don’ts of bathrooms refits. And shared tips with me from his wealth of experience. I’m so grateful and feel so much more confident in my search for the right fittings and decision making. Thank you so much!

New bathroom, storage cupboard and toilet, all done to a very high standard

Steve did a fantastic job of rebuilding my bathroom, and I couldn't be happier with the result! The job involved tearing out the old bathroom and fitting new furniture, plumbing, and tiles, but also tearing out and adding walls to make a built in cupboard on 2 levels, as well as replacing the downstairs toilet. All of these were done to a very high standard, with extreme attention to detail, and all within the estimated time-frame. Steve was unfazed whenever unforeseen problems arose, and was always ready with solutions. Furthermore, he was always available to discuss any and all aspects of the job, answer any questions that we had in detail, and talk us through the process of each step of the work. I should also mention that it was a pleasure having Steve around the house; while I'm glad the job is done, I will miss the conversations over cups of tea! Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Steve to anyone looking to have any sort of work done, without hesitation!

I am truly honoured in that i meet some fantastic people to help out such as Matt and Michelle, so thank you very much for your kind words. You were really involved with all the fine logistics and took a great interest in how it all goes together, it is such a great bonus to work with someone with an engineering back ground and appreciates the details, it was a very long job as i like to work to a standard and you guys were just great, Matt is just such a genuine guy! I have been spoilt with many cups of tea and i shall miss our talks on science, engineering and philosophy!

We had been bothered with a water pipe that was banging against a joist for some weeks. It was in a bedroom and made sleep very difficult. Having had to wait to get the boiler, which we thought was the cause, checked by the Gas Board, it was only a week or so before Christmas that we realised we would have to find a carpenter to look into it. Thanks to Trusted Traders and by good luck, I found Steve. It was only a small job but fiddly: removing fitted carpet and hard board and then getting under the floorboards to find the problem and working out how to cushion the pipe. Steve was very busy and only got to us at 3.30pm on Christmas Eve but he set about the job with great care, found and sorted out the difficulty and left things all neat and tidy, at 6.30pm on Christmas Eve, when he could easily have said it was too late. It helped a lot that Steve is familiar with all the building trades and not just carpentry so he knew how to locate the problem quickly. What an act of kindness as well as professionalism! I could not rate him more highly. He will be top of my list for any future work we need to have done.

Impressive QC and attention to detail

Steve recently fixed a leaking shower for us - and by 'fixed' I mean removed the enclosure, carefully removed the tiles, improved the stud work, replaced the damaged plasterboard, replaced the tiles and refitted the enclosure. He did an amazing job - and even sourced new tiles that were apparently out of stock everywhere - and we're really pleased with Steve's QC and attention to detail. It was done to schedule and budget and Steve was a pleasure to have around, as he always talked us through his daily work and answered any questions we had. Steve has also done a few other jobs for us over the years, from carpentry to plumbing and plastering, and he's always impressed. He's now our go-to builder for any improvement or repair work we need doing. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Job Fitting Kitchen!

We booked Steve to fit our new kitchen earlier this year and he has done a great job. There were a few unexpected issues surrounding our plumbing and some electrical work, but nothing fazed Steve and he sorted these out quickly and to a very high standard. Everything was done in good time, and each part of the job was explained to us and Steve showed off all the neat tricks and bits he'd done that other workmen wouldn't bother with. Cabinets and worktops were installed, new lights installed, a new sink installed and pipework behind the sink and washing machine tidied so the washing machine would sit flush under the worktop, something it never did before! Steve also moved our cooker switches from being in a cupboard to being on the wall, and tiled the walls under the units. Steve also did our floor, which we forgot to mention in our original quote, but he fitted this perfectly and very quickly. On top of being a highly professional and talented tradesman, Steve is also a nice person to have around the house, always happy for a quick chat over a cup of tea and to explain what he's doing. He keeps everything very tidy at the end of each day. The work was done quicker than anticipated and whilst the quote increased a little due to the request for flooring, this was explained in advance and we were happy with the initial quote and overall price paid. I can't recommend him highly enough, he has absolutely transformed our kitchen, and it is now perfect.
