"We can't recommend Sam highly enough. His work is beautiful, robust and clever - he brought a really proactive and helpful approach to his work with us - spotting things and making suggestions which made the end result even better than we could have expected, and all within budget. He's super tidy, reliable and lovely to have around too. When he was working with us, I was 9 months pregnant, so I can also say he's not averse to risk management! We're so happy with your work Sam, thank you!"
Dree & Phil, Sydenham
"Sam is an absolute pleasure to deal with. He's really accommodating, reliable and an excellent communicator. We had a pretty clear idea of what we wanted but Sam suggested changes which definitely made the overall outcome way better. It's helpful having someone with the technical smarts but also the design/finish eye to see the day-to-day strengths or limitations. For instance: we love our log box! All Sam's idea and beautifully finished from reclaimed period floorboards... The 'floating' shelves still get plenty of admiration. The finishing is top-drawer. We already connected him with two friends & family in E17 which speaks for itself."
Tom & Tara, Walthamstow
"I would really recommend working with Sam. He built a bespoke storage unit in my living room. It was a complicated design but Sam completed the build to a very high standard, reflecting his excellent attention to detail. He was also able to suggest improvements to the design during the build. He is very clean and took great care of the materials and my flat. I'm a happy client!"
"We are absolutely delighted with all the work Sam did. He was brilliant at building on our ideas with his own creativity. Helping us to realise designs that were original and specific to our needs and home. He even recommended colour choices which we always get complements on. His friendly manner and creative thinking made the whole process enjoyable. He was incredibly conscientious about tidying up and cleaning at the end of the day and the finished products are brilliant. All the work is finished to a really high standard. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a carpenter to build anything from shelves to bespoke furniture."
Julia & Nate, Brixton
"Sam was introduced by a friend and created many really wonderful and well-made units for our new home. These included a free-standing cabinet, shelves, sliding mirrored doors, mounted cabinets and in-closet drawers - all of which are both sturdy and stylish and have added value to our home. He was very neat and also helped with a few other things that were outside his remit. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sam."
Angus & Emily, Marylebone
"We had a tricky space in our new loft conversion over the staircase which we weren't sure what to do with. After speaking to a few carpenters, Sam was the only person to come up with a brilliant plan. We now have a great pull-out wardrobe, lots of shelving and storage. Sam was incredibly friendly, clean and tidy and great at thinking outside the box. We were on a tight budget and he was also excellent at "value engineering" for us to keep a lid on costs. We would recommend him without hesitation."
Rob & Ellie, West Dulwich
"We asked Sam to build some floating shelves for us in two super uneven alcoves in our slightly wonky Victorian home. He came in for a consultation, totally understood what we needed straight away and was great at suggesting ways of making it a reality. Sam was very clean and tidy, sourced fabulous quality wood and was very reliable. We're absolutely delighted with our new shelves and would recommend Sam highly!"
Rob & Zu, Finsbury Park
"Sam designed and installed a bespoke set of shelves for us. He took the time to go through with us and suggest possible design options and materials. Once we had decided on what we wanted he provided a competitive quote and, upon us accepting, arranged a time that suited us to carry the work out. We are thrilled with the shelves and often get asked for Sam's contact details from friends and family who see them. Sam's work is of a very high standard with careful attention to detail. The icing on the cake is that Sam is friendly, tidy and very easy to deal with."
Tom & Gemma, London Fields
"Sam designed and built us a superb looking full-wall shelving unit. He came recommended from a friend which was a big plus as we immediately knew that we could trust him. He was really responsive when he came round to measure up and planned the build in a way which minimised the amount of time on-site, so less dust, noise and general inconvenience.
Sam has a strong eye for detail which helped solve some tricky problems we had with not so straight walls, and little things like which catches to use. During the works Sam effectively house sat for two weeks and kept everything in order. He's a great craftsman; I really can't recommend him enough."
