I'm a self-confessed fussy customer. And just having renovated my whole place - halfway furnished - I decided to touch the only room I said I wouldn't: the upstairs en suite! And with clearly not enough room to fit a cutting machine inside, I knew that tiles would likely need to be cut in the garden and walked through the house. The thought of the mess and the stress all over again was killing me. My original builders were becoming unreliable and I badly needed someone to come in and take the reins. That was Michelle. After contracting Carnot Construction, in hindsight, I could have booked a holiday for the duration of the works and still had peace of mind. Michelle made nothing seem like an issue and that gave me comfort and confidence from the beginning. Oleg, the on sight constant, is such a great builder. An all-rounder, efficient, friendly, punctual, tidy, trustworthy and extremely professional. He was great with adapting to my last minute decisions and did what it took to get the job done. A wall-to-wall, bathtub-to-ceiling one piece mirror? Done. After realising that the tiles I ordered were, in fact, small pieces of natural stone, Michelle quickly replaced our intended tiler for a stone specialist. He is hands down the best I've ever witnessed. All of the guys did a great job and I’m so pleased with my new bathroom. The only problem was that I didn’t meet them earlier!
100% RECOMMENDED Michelle and her partner measured up and competitively quoted within a short space of time. She was then very patient and supportive when unforeseen planning issues popped up and set the start date back by quite some time. Once building started, all questions were promptly answered by either the site manager or Michelle, both being available at all times. I was away for the duration of most of the job and it was very reassuring to know that I was leaving it all in capable and honest hands. The workers were very proficient and tidied up after themselves at end of each day. They also put in some very long hours at times to hasten the work. I was also impressed by the handling of unexpected problems during the building (mainly invasive tree stumps!). I am absolutely thrilled with the end result. High quality workmanship and a beautiful building which I am sure will last many years. I would certainly recommend them without a doubt.
I am extremely pleased with the work Michelle and her crew carried out on a recent bathroom refurbishment. The work was done to a high standard and the staff were always polite. I would certainly recommend Carnot Construction and intend to use them again.
Ground Floor Extension and Refurbishment

Chelsea Garden Studio
Timber clad garden studio complete in August 2018. The client wanted a nicely insulated space to accomodate additional guests and also to use a nice outdoor space in summer. This was clad in timber with a eucalyptus bi-fold door.
Refreshed Woodford Bathroom
Our client had a tired old yellow bathroom that needed refusrbishing. The whole bathroom was gutted and waterproofed and a bright, modern bathroom installed.
This beautiful new bathroom was installed by us in May 2018. With carerra marble tiles all the way to the ceiling, underfloor heating mats and a little storage niche in the shower, makes this bathroom pure luxury.
