Family home Refurbishment Balham


Nik and his team have been a pleasure to work with throughout. Nik is extremely good at being upfront about costs, delivering on time and is extremely reliable. I would have (and indeed have had) no reservations about recommending his workmanship highly to others. The attention to detail is amazing and he is full of good ideas and suggestions that have really made the end result individual to us. The work Nik has done for us has been done in tranches, as agreed, and the kitchen portion has been completed for around 2.5 years ago and I am still completely happy with it. It is rare to find someone who is such a pleasure to work with and in whom you have total trust that the end result will be to the highest standards and who really invests in the end vision of his clients. The works Earl and Calam carried out for us where - Gutting and damp proofing our lower ground floor, putting in a new kitchen, some structural works including taking back an archway. Laying new stone flooring in lower ground floor, laying new timber flooring in hallway, rebuilding staircase, re-configuring front garden to include leveling and building a new storage cupboard, laying natural stone over top. Decorating house throughout, overseeing new electrical points throughout and the installation of a wireless alarm system and building additional storage.

Kentishtown extension NW5


We had an extension made in 2008 and all our bathrooms were remodelled. New wires and plumbing on large parts of the house and a new heatingsystem . The previous foundations on the existing extension had to beredug ( deeper ). Earl & Calam did a highly professional job and the standard of work was very high and above all the quality. It has really 8 years later stood the test of time. Throughout the process the communication was good, when a problem arose ( as it does when doing massive buildingwork) a solution was found. The carpentry skills were to a high standard and their contacts in subcontracting other skilled professionals were good too so the plumber was great, the decorator, the specialist flooring guys. Not only did they do an amazing job with my stone floor but I had this beautiful reclaimed herring bone parquet flooring that arrived in dirty minute pieces that were later magically transformed into my beautiful polished floor. They are great with smart storage solutions. One of the bathrooms the architect had designed but the other one Earl& Calam designed for me and it is great. Would def recommend and use again

Edwardian property South London


We bought a well priced but run down Edwardian property in South London which required major refurbishment . We needed a new kitchen and bathroom to be designed and built from scratch, new flooring throughout, as well as rewiring, replacement central heating and extensive redecoration including new doors and a refitted basement room and staircase. Earl and Calam were fantastic throughout the entire process and advised on costs, materials, planning and design, and managed all aspects of the job very smoothly, including electricians, plumbers, floor specialists, carpenters, decorators, carpet fitters, plasterers and tilers as well as remodelling two entire new rooms. They made sure all the work was done to an exceptionally high standard and that everything complemented the period and style of the house. The whole refurbishment was done on time and on budget and we are delighted with the quality of the results. Highly recommended.

New kitchen and dining room knock though.


Our kitchen is superb and we have found Earl and Calam to be very professional and everyone involved have been a pleasure to have around. They were courteous, helpful and polite and very well organised. If you have to have builders in your home, these are the people you can trust

House in Blackmore, Essex


This very nice retired couple wanted to update the house they had recently moved into.

First on the list was the kitchen diner. We moved their exisitng kitchen in to their garage as they wanted to live in the house during the works.

We then knowed the wall between there kitchen and dining room down and installed a steel.

Detail kitchens fitted a lovely litchen for them and we tiled the floor and fitted undefloor heating to take the chill off.

Family home in Balham, London, SW12



As with a lot of these victorian properties they have been neglected by previose owners and need some TLC.

We did an aprasal of the existing building and agreed roof repairs and had to damp proof the lower ground floor.

Our works involved completely redoing the lower ground floor, redocorating the inside and outside of the house, repairs to the roof and guttering.

A lovely new kitchen, undefloor  heating, lime stone flooring, timber flooring and some storage bits and pieces.

We also repaired the front railings and fitted stone steps and paving to the front area.
