Latest testimonial received from Gosport, Hampshire for an insulated building..

Latest testimonials:


A very professional job

Unable to carry out the build ourselves due to medical reasons, we noticed Southwicks Garden Offices on the internet. We needed a building different than what was on offer by most other firms, so we approached Jon to design a bespoke log cabin to details we provided. He and his team came up exactly as we wanted for a price that was within our budget.

The build took two weeks to complete and now we have our cabin, looking far better than we had hoped. The quote included base, fully insulated and equipped and ready to move into.

What surprised us initially was that you specialise in kitting your buildings out with complete insulation to walls, ceiling and floor, electrics, heating, fully painted inside and out, double-glazed, all finished off with quality carpeting and guttering. A total solution within the quote. Jon, Dave, and not forgetting Sophie, your rock-steady handed painter, you can be proud of what you have achieved, especially since this was new ground for you all. I will be singing your praises to all of my relatives and friends, indeed to all those who wish to know, for some time to come.

A highly professional job carried out by dedicated professionals - well done and thank you.
Whoops - it would be remiss of me not to thank Rolfe (the cocker spaniel) for entertaining our two shelties over the same period.
