To Whom It May Concern
We bought our house, built in the 19th century, with the intention of renovating, after receiving an architect’s input, this seemed like a daunting task. We had extensive plans drawn up by an architect and it seemed that our vision, the character of our house and our budget was being ripped to pieces. The word “renovation” was seen as a future nightmare, if we could not even decide on the plans.
Wendy asked relevant questions regarding our lifestyle and within one week we had ideas and draft sketches that suited us far better than the architect plans. Plans were finalized and before we knew it, we were moving out for the project to begin.
Wendy gave us an estimated completion date and having heard horror stories, we decided to add an extra month onto our alternate accommodation plans. We were later proved wrong and Wendy managed to complete the project on time.
Renovating a house is expensive and we knew that, we were concerned with starting the process and then getting caught out by unforeseen costs. The budget we obtained from Wendy was detailed and even though the total cost was more than budgeted, it was all due to us choosing more expensive finishes and wanting more work done during the process. I can honestly say there were no surprises.
Renovations are always stressful, but Wendy made it as easy as possible. She gave advice on the plans, helped us when choosing finishing’s’ but always left it up to us to make the final decisions. She was practical in her advice and we followed it 95% of the time.
Looking back on our experience, we will definitely buy our next house with the intention of renovating and Wendy Homes and her team will get the nod once again!
