The Sands Custom Build
Favourite part of the house is the living room and the way that space ‘feels’. We love the high ceilings, natural light and stone fireplace.
From the start I think Derbyshire knew I was always going to be a very hands-on client who like to be involved and understand the detail. My involvement was never discouraged and I doubt other builders would have ‘tolerated’ me as well. Very happy with the quality of the craftsmanship.
Derbyshire never took shortcuts and regardless of some complicated design and some difficult materials chosen by us. They always made sure the job was done right with excellent attention to detail. For example our floors (which we love) are pre-finished and created some challenges during the final stages of the fit-out. Whilst Derbyshire pre-warned us of these difficulties they were happy to work with our choices. They also helped and advised us on other choices of materials, windows, stone benches etc.
Tim, David and Chris were always available and very responsive throughout the process. Communication was never a problem. After Chris came on as our supervisor he was on top of every detail and could always answer my queries on any part of the plans or build progress. Favourite part of the house is the living room and the way that space ‘feels’. We love the high ceilings, natural light and stone fireplace. Overall I think the best way to describe Derbyshire is ‘uncompromising’ and committed to the quality of the final product.
