This project specified the demolishing and rebuilding of two annexe buildings, including - a first for Acorn Builders - a piggery! Luckily, the original residents had been moved out some time ago, and the building now provides comfortable, self-contained family accomodation.

Dockenfield
We built a new studio annexe, landscaping and driveway for our customers in Dockenfield. The work also includeded adding a pond and fountain to the garden.
Our customer says:
"With respect to Acorn builders, my wife and I are delighted to provide a reference; the quality of the workmanship, professional manner in which the work was undertaken, the politeness of the team, there availability and the schedule over which the work was undertaken not only met but exceeded, what I know are, very challenging expectations from my wife and I.    We had a number of change orders during the build (at our request, encouraged by the quality we saw) and Mike and his team not only took them on board but maintained our desired timelines and the quality of the work never dipped.  We found Mike and his team to be very proactive and very willing to talk through even minute details and in my case some very challenging aspirations. We have been so delighted with the Acorn we are already planning the next phase of our renovation and have already advised Mike he will be leading the project.   On financial control, Mike maintained budget estimates, his subcontractors, where of the same quality and his knowledge of the market place and right place to get materials was extremely useful.  We would be delighted to let you visit if you wished, however our only request would be you would be accompanied by Mike. If you decide to take up the invite to visit, during the visit I would be delighted to have a side conversation on expenditures so you get comfort that Mike is capable of handling the size of your building project."

Beacon Hill
This project was to tastefully add a modern extension to a period building with limited access. We also landscaped the garden to provide a pleasant outlook from the new space.
Our customer says:
"Now that the dust has settled and we are happily enjoying our new home, I thought it would be a good time to write and thank you and the team for all your hard work and diligence on our fantastic extension and remodel. Choosing the right builder for your project can often be a real leap of faith; not only do you need someone who can complete the job to a high standard, within budget and to realistic time frames, but you also need a team that you trust will deliver your vision – all of which Acorn achieved in abundance! For us, we also realised the importance of never underestimating the experienced builder as the project progressed. Your 30 years experience in the business, not only meant that you dealt calmly with any unexpected situations that occurred (and we had a few!) but you were also able to offer great recommendations and valued advice throughout. But most importantly, you were a team that we really liked and were happy to have in our house for 7 months, which meant we were able to build a great working relationship and a high level of trust. We certainly feel very fortunate to have used Acorn for our project and would definitely have no hesitation in recommending you and the team to anyone else. We just hope we will have the opportunity to use you again in the future."

Wonersh
This project built a large extension to enhance our customer's large rural property. Services provided: groundworks, building, electrical, roofing, hard landscaping.
Our Customer says:
"We invited Acorn Builders to tender for our project, which was a large two storey extension plus complete renovation including some structural revisions, on the suggestion of our architect. From the initial meeting, through the tender process and contract negotiations we found Mike Russo easy to deal with and responsive. Mike’s estimate for our project of 28 weeks, was shorter than we had expected, and whilst the project took slightly longer than this we were able to move back into our 99.5% completed house by our agreed deadline which is what really mattered. Overall the quality of the workmanship was of a high standard and most of the sub-contractors that Mike used clearly take a pride in their work, as does Mike. There were one or two unforeseen problems along the way - Mike suggested solutions to fix them and gave a fixed price to do so. He also made a number of suggestions to revise how we had planned for things to be done – these were often small points but made a significant difference. Where a mistake was made Mike held his hand up and fixed it. We would not hesitate to use Acorn Builders in the future."

Marley
A four-berth garage and studio to enhance a large rural property. Services provided: groundworks, building, electrical, roofing, hard landscaping.
Our customer says:
"The 4 berth garage/studio which Acorn Builders have undertaken has been a "transformational event" for us, turning a muddy garden jungle into a first rate entrance, forecourt and garage/playroom facility. The standard of work is well above that which we've experienced on our previous building projects and we cannot commend you enough on the quality of your project management. Disruption to daily life has been minimal during the construction process and your workforce have been courteous and helpful throughout. Your assistance and suggestions in developing our conceptual forecourt design have proven to be invaluable and flexible, which has ensured that we have remained within budget on this project. Please pass on our appreciation to your team and do not hesitate to use us as a future reference."
