From start to finish its been really well managed and delivered and again we are really pleased with the quality of work throughout …Special thanks to Kieran and Amber for all their hard work throughout and really made a big difference , especially when there were times when we had some issues and how they both resolved them…

I would recommend people who are thinking of an extension to use Steve Howie because of the way the project was designed, kept inside budget, delivered and the professionalism throughout …

Thanks again Steve and to all your staff involved ..”


“We initially contacted Steve Howie after hearing the radio advertisements and looking through the photographs on the website. We were very impressed with the three different designs for the back of our home that Steve came up with and also the professional approach of Bruce, the architect. Steve designed exactly what we asked for, as well as providing us with some more interesting possibilities.Read More...

Work on our property started on the agreed date and the site was generally kept tidy. We were pleased that we were able to live around the demolition and construction work.

We are delighted with our new home. The bifold doors leading out to the garden and new patio, combined with the large new kitchen and dining room are just as we imagined.

We would like to thank Steve, Kieran, Bruce and team for redesigning the living space in our home and for creating just what we wanted. We would particularly like to thank Amber for her very professional and prompt responses to our questions, she is a genuine asset to the team.”


 

“We were delighted with the service we received from Steve Howie Design & Build, and thrilled with our ‘new’ house!  Kieran was a dedicated and considerate project manager, and all the builders and tradesmen we had on site were polite, friendly and hard-working.  Read More...

The communication was excellent, we always knew what was going to happen when, and on the odd occasion that something went wrong or took longer than expected, the team were quick to put things right and minimise inconvenience to us.  Best of all, the work was completed more or less on budget, and ahead of schedule!”

 

“Thank you to Steve Howie Design and Build. We had been living in our house for coming up for 7 years and had managed to be in a position to improve the inside of our house. We had been in discussions with another company but despite us continually telling them the prices they kept coming back with were beyond our budget.
Steve Howie came to see our property and immediately came up with some design options we, or the other people we had spoken to, had not imagined. We were given a grand plan for an ideal scenario where money is no object. But of course it is. We explained our budget and our priorities and together came up with a new design. For us our priorities were to have an improved kitchen and larger dining area for when we have guests. Steve Howie listened and kept this in mind but also pointed out that we didn’t update our lounge at the same time then the flow of our downstairs area would not feel right.Read More...

A design was agreed upon and at that stage a detailed schedule of the works to be carried out and payment plan was presented to us. We were then happy to proceed.
Work progressed to the timescales that we had been quoted. The workmen always turned up on time and as advertised. Upon arrival home there was no mess or dirt to clean up in the areas of the house which weren’t being worked on at that stage of the project. But it was great to see the progress of the new parts of our house.
As the work continued we always had a person to contact and a chance to let them if we had any questions or worries. Communication continued two ways throughout the build. And we were involved in lots of small decisions and choices for all the sorts of little details, like whether the lounge door should open in or out, that make a difference to the final finish.
At the completion of the project we were very impressed with the look and feel of our new improved house. The budget had been met and the reality was better than we could have imagined. Our friends and family couldn’t believe it was the same house they were visiting.
We are very happy with our new house. It is so nice we always have a garden view even from the corner seat area at the front part of the kitchen. We have sun light coming through the velux window in the afternoon now… we are very happy as the rear part of our house, where the larger dining room is, hardly had sun light before the work.
Our priorities had been listened to and our budget met.
Thank you Steve Howie Design and Build”


 

“I have used Steve Howie Design and Build on numerous projects, including the refurbishment of my house. I would never think of using anyone else now. Steve has always completed exactly what he has said he will. Read More...

His workmen are accurate, tidy and very quick! I’ve always been impressed with how quickly my build has been completed, and how tidy the sites stayed throughout. It was fantastic at my house as I was still living in a tidy environment all be it was a building site.

I’d highly recommend this company to anyone who wishes to use a professional design and build company!”
