MR. & MRS. S

We were recommended to Joe by a Company we had round to quote for lime rendering a gable end wall on our cottage.
The Company thought that there were issue beyond rendering and so recommended Joe. Having spoke to Joe on the phone and despite being very busy, Joe arranged a date to come and look and evaluate the wall. Joe was there when he said he would be, and after spending sometime looking at the probable issues, agreed that in his opinion the existing render should be removed as he believed the issues behind the render were pretty serious.
We discussed what it might be and a date was arranged for the work to commence. A few weeks went by and we received a call from Joe saying he’s been thinking about things and wasn’t happy with the way the wall
Was and as Christmas was approaching, his conscience made him drive the hour to our cottage and he installed an Acro ‘ to keep us safe over Christmas’
When the time came, he was here on time with one of his team and they set to work. Joe said 2 weeks approx and it was approx 12 days. The two of them worked so efficiently, keeping us abreast at all times on what he found and how it would be rectified. He actually didn’t need as much replacement Oak as he first thought and he gave us a revised quote taking off the items he wouldn’t be using despite having purchased them already. 
At all times he was extremely tidy and polite and so knowledgeable. He even mended the side gate, painted the wood at the top of the gable end, oh, let the dogs out many times during the day.
The finish was impeccable . Hand on heart, I cannot fault him on anything at all. If you want a craftsman of the highest skill level, and just one of the nicest and polite gentlemen you will ever meet, give Joe a call. Outstanding work from an outstanding craftsman and individual, 1,000,000/10


"Wanting to completely rearrange the layout of our 400 year old listed house was a pipe dream but after getting permission, Joe and his team made it reality. They worked tirelessly and fought all problems that came up with professionalism and quality. Advising us along the way as to better our ideas for the benefit of the overall result. And what a result it is! It seems there's nothing they can't do, they survived the minefield of our house and we can't recommend them highly enough. Pure quality, true old fashioned craftsmanship with original style materials and an all round excellent team!"


"Joe and his Team spent all of March 2015 repairing much (well, replacing most!) of the decayed structural Oak timber frame of my latest project, a 17th Century Grade II Listed cottage near Diss. I have spent more than 30 years in property development: Contractors with the required specialist knowledge and expertise are few and far between; those who work fast, cleanly, accurately, and - equally importantly - without supervision are an even rarer find. Joe and his Team have demonstrated excellence in all respects, delivering high-quality work to a tough specification, on-time, and within agreed budgets. It doesn't get any better than that! Many thanks Joe."


"Highly recommended, you won't regret using Eve Carpentry. Joe and Tom were professional, friendly and prompt from giving a quote to finishing the job - adding some much-needed eaves storage in our bedroom in the form of bespoke built-in drawers and a cupboard with hanging rail. We were expecting to have to wait weeks but Joe rang one Monday morning saying he'd finished another job sooner than expected and could come that same morning, which was a pleasant surprise! I was really impressed with Joe's attention to detail and problem-solving on the job in particular, as he dealt with the little things that come up and things we realised we wanted as the job progressed. We'd definitely use them again!"
