The worktops are safely installed and look beautiful! Thank you to all who helped us achieve the dream! Thank you for all your help, Michelle, you made it all very easy.
We love the Ying Yang bench and the way it fits into its surroundings. One BIG THANK YOU. We finished its surrounding this summer this year and felt it to fit so well with the tree lighting…it’s lovely
Thank you so much for sorting out the plaque for me, it was ready as promised yesterday at 10am. and we are all so thrilled with it. It is a truly beautiful piece of work. It is going to stand out when its in its place at our local churchyard. Many Thanks once again
Just to report that, 5 years on, the slate workshops you made for us are absolutely fantastic. They are in tip top condition with not a scratch, despite heavy and sometimes careless use by a large and busy family. No wear and tear at all. They look fantastic and are much admired by all visitors.
