Delighted With The Extension

Customer reference for Christy McCabe Carpentry And Building as told to pickapro by Karen Ashe from Lucan, Co. Dublin on 18-Aug-2014

When was the work done?
The work was done in August, 2012.

What was involved?
We had an extension built onto the back of the house. The additional space is mainly used as a day room. We also had a wall taken down separating the kitchen and the sitting room to make a larger open plan space.

How did you choose Christy McCabe Carpentry And Building?
Christy is related to a friend of a friend of mine and she recommended him to me after he did an extension for her. I did speak to a few other builders but chose Christy to do the work because of the recommendation. His quote was good too and I was impressed after seeing the work he had done for my friend.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Christy McCabe?
I had a few basic ideas but nothing definite.

Did Christy introduce new ideas?
Christy was very good about explaining what was needed and brought in several ideas, one of which was adding a skylight to the room.

How did the project run?
Very well. Christy was reliable, was here when he said he would be and completed the work within the specified time quoted. It was satisfying to see work progressing every day. During the messiest portion of the project, like when he took down the internal wall, we moved out of the house for a few days but returned after the worst of it. Christy worked around us and he was never a bother. We're delighted with the workmanship and how it all turned out.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Christy McCabe Carpentry And Building?
The biggest benefit to us was Christy's reliability, the fact that he finished the job on time and he kept us informed as to where the project stood. Christy was great that way. Another thing I liked was Christy's approachability and that I could give him a call anytime I had a question.

What's your favourite part now?
Before the extension was done, the kitchen area was cold and wasn't much used. Since the renovation and the new open plan space has been completed the room gets a lot more use now. We're delighted with it.

Would you recommend Christy McCabe Carpentry And Building to others?
I would, yes and I have done so. Christy's excellent,

Any tips for other people?
Have a good look around and know what you want before you get started. Be sure because it's a space that you'll be using and looking at for a long time.
