“We went out to tender for the addition of an architect designed solid roof sun lounge for our second home in the far north west of Scotland. Whilst this process was managed by our architect, we met John Muir, owner of Lapwings, in a café in Poolewe to discuss the plans. Whilst he was not the cheapest quotation, we were impressed with him as an individual and the way he performed at the meeting, so decided to go with him, as we thought we could trust him to do a good job for us.
As our main home was 460 miles from the location, it was important that things went to an agreed time schedule as one of us had to be there for the 12 weeks of the build. They started on the agreed date and finished on time, more or less sticking to the plan throughout. There were one or two hiccups along the way as was to be expected, but these were dealt with well between us, without the stress we have experienced with builders before.
The quality of the work was excellent, and his regular men were helpful and user friendly, albeit they did get through a lot of sandwiches and apple pies which we provided for their lunches as the location was quite remote. John himself was very personable at all times, unlike the guys who originally built the house for us 8 years previously.
We would not hesitate to use them again and have recommended them to others.”
