Hampstead Heath – rear extension and renovations

We bought the house three years ago and then took some time to deliberate about making changes. The house was tall and narrow and like a maze, with lots of small rooms and dark, narrow corridors. Fundamentally, our aim was to open up, extend out and increase the floor space: that involved bringing half the garden inside, creating a mezzanine dining level and enlarging the living room and ground floor.

Our architect knew and recommended Jason and, when we met him, our first impressions were very positive. He was straightforward, realistic and told us exactly what we needed to know. Of course, it helped that he’s lovely: as well as trusting Jason, we knew that we would be seeing him every day, so it was essential that we got on well on a personal level.

The on-site team reflected Jason’s high standards. They were friendly, turned up on time and their workmanship across the board was exceptional – after a while they became like family. Jason himself was always available to answer questions and I also appreciated his eye for detail. I handled all the interior decoration and, as well as ensuring the plans were practical, I really appreciated his second opinion.

If we need any building work done in the future, we wouldn’t go to anyone else. We absolutely recommend Jason and Whitehall Construction.
