Dorma Bunglow to House Conversion with Side Extension
Ian and his team have been exemplary from start to finish. We decided to do a complete renovation of our dorma bungalow into a ‘house’ with side extension. We had an initial chat and explained what we thought we were looking for based on our architect plans. He listened to all our ideas and gave realistic feedback.
We decided to do a’ pay as you go’ rather than a fixed price in the hope to reduce costs and make changes where necessary. Although an unknown Ian gave us a price based on what we wanted and advised to ensure we had sufficient contingency. Although if, like us, you may need to add on another 20% on top of that as there is always the desire to ‘upspec’ as you are only doing it once!
The project management was fantastic. We both work full time and with 2 young children, we honestly would not have been able to manage the various trades, materials, and 1000’s of conversations. Ian removed all the stress and time that is involved with such a complex build. The trades are fantastic. The carpenters were amazing and I was actually disappointed that it had to be boarded and plastered! In fact every trade demonstrated a real attention to detail and any changes we decided on were actioned quickly and easily.
They are competitive, experienced, professional, honest and easy to deal with. We would whole heartedly recommend the team.

We have now used Oakridge Projects on two major household extensions. The most recent build lasted 9 months and we were very impressed with Ian and his team who were very professional and, most importantly, trustworthy. Ian was extensively involved throughout and it was very reassuring to know he was on hand to answer any queries.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Oakridge Projects.
