We purchased a former single storey milking shed in 2013, without planning permision. Our intention was to convert the barn into a residential dwelling.  Whilst we were confident in carrying out the construction aspect ourselves, we required assistance with the drawings and the planning application. When we met Dan onsite for the first time, we knew he was the man for the job. He listened to our ideas and provided invaluable advice. Dan produced quality drawings, completed the planning application, liased with structural engineer and dealt with a number of enquiries and challenges from the council along the way.  Dan did a fantastic job in securing planning consent, he worked quickly and efficiently,   he really knows his stuff and was a pleasure to work with. The result being a superb family home with an open plan contempory interior, whilst retaining charm and character.
