We’ve all seen the design & building programmes on TV Lots of problems along the way, big fall outs with the builders etc . Yes there were problems, but nothing that Ashley & his great team of guys couldn’t sort out. And no big fall outs, which when you spend 7 months having the builders in must be fairly rare! My project was a very large extension, including bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, Complicated heating & plumbing requirements & miles of wiring to be joined on to existing house. Lots of joinery, a staircase, oak & stone floors, retaining garden walls the list went on! From day one of watching a very nasty extension being demolished, on to digging through unexpected layers of stone to the final days & finishing touches the whole project was handled in a very professional way! I have nothing but praise for Ashley & the team, between them, they seem to be able to tackle anything that is thrown at them & would highly recommend A.S Baker for any project you may have in mind, big or small! - Alan

We finally have our outbuildings remodelled into a beautiful living space. All credit for this beautiful transformation must go to Ashley and his band of happy workers. From the first to last day Ash and all his staff have been professional, approachable and proud of their work. Always tidy and clearing away at the end of each day. A pleasure to have around and sad now they have finished. - N
