See below, and the following pages, for what our customers say:

  • Carrie provides an excellent, friendly and cost effective service. We used her service to decide if we could add a downstairs shower-room within our budget. Carrie listened carefully to our needs and own ideas, she then measured up and made some further suggestions. We ended up with not only a spacious shower-room but also a utility space and her budget estimate was very accurate. We would not hesitate in using her services again in the future or recommending her to friends. Betty & Mike, Netley Abbey.
  • Hampshire Architect’s consultation service is a really good way to explore possibilities for extending or renovating your home. Carolyn worked with us to understand our needs, suggest solutions and provided us with a raft of useful information that has certainly helped us set the ball rolling! Mr & Mrs Bell, Hamble.
  • Carolyn listened carefully and understood our project. The council’s requirements for planning and building regulation approval were explained and their particular relevance to our project. We discussed a number of designs and their implications, and finally drew up a sequential plan which would take our project through to completion. A friendly, informative hour very well spent. Mr & Mrs Holland, Netley Abbey.
  • We found Carolyn easy to work with and very approachable. She listened to what we wanted and ideas we had before providing two designs for us to think about. The Tablet based 3D model was very useful for visualising and understanding the relationships of the various elements of the design. The drawing pack was clear and easily understood; having started the building work, very few queries have arisen. We would highly recommend her. Neil & Claire, Drayton
