We are writing to thank you for the first class service you provided back
in April. You were professional, polite and the quality of your work is
excellent too. Faultless.
Thank you too, to your wife and family as I know you put in extra hours
whilst we were away, at a time your wife was expecting your son!.
We would be only too happy to recommend you to others and hope "Harvey
& Little" continues to be a success.
Where do we start?, our house has doubled in size in both width and height
and more or less every room in the house has required alterations.
From day one Paul talked us through the programme and complexities of
the extension reassuring us, but more importantly instilled trust in that
we knew Harvey & Little were the right choice.
The build took 6 months and many hours over and above a normal days work,
but every trade would make sure the living area of the house was clean,
even vacuumed, before going home!
We cannot thank you enough and hope you will drop into see us when ever
you are passing.
The quality of work is second to none and we cannot believe with all of
the obstacles you had to overcome that there were no hitches.
As we said at the start we were very nervous of embarking upon such an
extension as all work we have had carried out in the past by so called
professionals has gone wrong and left a bitter taste. However we are more
than happy to recommend you to our friends and family in the hope they
too can enjoy a Harvey & Little extension!.

Having been recommended by my Architect you came with great expectations.
In order to celebrate my eightieth birthday I wanted my listed garden
completely stripped out, replanned with feature arches, gateways and planters
all in character with my circa 18th century property being sourced from
specialist reclaim suppliers the challenge being you only had 4
weeks to carry out all of the aforementioned before a planned garden party!
Despite making a number of changes requiring the patio and pathways to
be uplifted your personnel were impeccably polite and patient with me,
a credit to your Company.
I am very pleased with the standard of finish and my beautiful garden.

We would like to recommend Harvey & Little to anyone thinking of having
any building work or quotes for their property. Paul and his team have
recently finished a full loft conversion to our bungalow.
They quoted a work plan and carried it out expertly. Any problems encountered
were overcome with ease and didn't phase anybody.
The workmanship is superb, they work to a high standard to make sure there
is very little disruption to your everyday life whilst they are in your
We think ourselves very lucky to have used Harvey & Little and wouldn't
hesitate to call on them in the future.
Having embarked on the full restoration, renovation and conversion of
a grade II listed four storey property into four individual apartments,
in the middle of Ipswich with no parking, loading or waiting, your Company
took on the impossible and succeeded on time and the agreed budget.
Having taken on board the production of cad drawings and local authority
liaison with the listing Officers your Company also took on board the
stressful negotiations, set backs and bureaucracy involved with planning
applications and despite all of this you and your Architect achieved
a fantastic scheme.
Due to the nature of the project, prior to gutting the building we needed
approval to replace everything, such as the cornice, windows, doors,
architraves, skirting and even the glass!! And all from approved restoration
As if this wasnt enough we discovered the basement required underpinning.
Unlike ourselves who were ready to throw in the towel, you were unphased
employing a specialist Structural Engineer from London who within a
week designed a scheme which was immediately approved by Building Control
and started the mammoth removal of 40 tonnes of soil, all transported
across a main road into a side street(the only location for a skip),
ready for the pour of 30 cubic metres of concrete perhaps you
now understand why we kept our distance!
At the launch evening our neighbour, Robin a Property Developer himself,
had nothing but admiration for your Company and the finish you delivered.
We whole heartedly concur with him and congratulate yourselves for the
professional manner in which you approached the project and kept ourselves
updated at all times, providing clear communication as to progress and
forthcoming key stages of the programme.
Congratulations to you and your Team. We are already in negotiations
for our next project, put the kettle on!!!
