Testimonials

"...It was particularly useful to have you on the team for this fast track extension. You were quick and accurate with the timber frame and the cladding and it was great that you were able to help so much with the roof tiling.
We look forward to working with you again in the near future."
Ian Campbell
M.D. Phoenix Construction, Kingston Nr. Lewes.

"...We are really pleased with the excellent work you have made with the bedroom cupboards. They are just what we needed and you were so tidy. Many thanks for a lovely job done."
Yours sincerely, Pippa Campbell

"I employed Simon in the summer of 2006 to completely redecorate my house with a view to maketing the property for sale. Prior to the work, the property looked tired and stale. After the work, the house looked fresh and modern. The work was finished to a very high standard throughout and my wife and I were delighted. We both found Simon to be polite, thoroughly trustworthy and professional. Indeed, the job turned out to be bigger than we originally thought; however, rather than extend the deadline, Simon extended his working day in order to complete the work on time. We marketed the property and received the asking price within a week. He is a multi-skilled craftsman and has an eye for detail. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others."
Philip Trenaman, Eastbourne

"Over the last year or so, I have used Simon's services on a numerous of occasions. These have ranged from simple carpentry jobs such as shelving and bath panels right up to the design and manufacture of bespoke furniture pieces. On all occasions I have been more than happy the quality and completeness of the work, always carried out on time. Furthermore it is extremely refreshing to deal with someone with such genuine enthusiasm and interest in the job. Both of which are reflected in the final outcome.I would have no hesitation in using Simon again, either domestically or professionally. I am also available for references."
Andrew Bridger, Loxwood

"Simon worked well and efficiently, dealing with unforeseeable problems which came up in the course of the job and solving them without fuss or panic. I am very happy with the final result."
Valmai Goodyear, Lewes

"Simon Goodman was responsible for making the templates for the glass panels for the huge arches in St Michaels. Obviously accuracy and precision were very important due to the glazing being toughenend glass. Each of the 3 arches had 3 panels with each one being slightly different. The quality of the finished results reflects highly the quality of the templates made which is what we have come to expect from Simon's work."
Diana Dryburgh, Castle Glazing

"Simon- I can confirm that I found you at all times to be a reliable, friendly, thoroughly professional craftsman. I was very pleased with the variety of work you did for me and would have no hesitation in recommending you."
Elizabeth Tyrell, Brighton

"I first employed Simon Goodman to install hardwood double glazing to front bays – ground and first floor. My house is in a conservation area and any replacements had to be exact replicas in appearance. Simon organised the construction and then fitted the replacements. This involved major repairs to a rotten sill and calculation and cutting of new lead weights to balance the much heavier windows. As the window is over a hundred year old, there was a deal of adjusting and fitting to be done. Simon managed this expertly and the result is brilliant.
I was so impressed I immediately asked Simon to construct a beautiful alcove cupboard and floating shelves in my sitting room and, later, to build a worktop and cupboard in my office (as well as ceiling access to my roof space.) Simon is a highly skilled, conscientious and trustworthy worker. He will follow your instructions to the letter, yet, if you need it, is always ready to suggest his own ideas. I would (and have done so) recommend Simon without hesitation."
Robert Smith, Lewes

"Simon created a bespoke access door to a roof space we have at the back of the house. He proved to be both skilled and flexible in his work creating exactly what we wanted, whilst including a few of his own improvements. Impressed with his work my husband then requested a collapsible/ folding drinks bar for outside events he organizes through his business, again our expectations were surpassed."
Anna Bagnall, Midhurst

"Opening a new shop can be quite a stressful experience.  So I was delighted to be given Simon's name from a friend to build me a shop counter.  Simon was incredibley professional and listened to what I needed, adding his own suggestions when I needed advice. The end result was a quality piece of shop fitting. I would have no qualms about reccommending him to anyone who should need a jolly good carpenter/joiner."
Tanya Laporte, Lewes

"Simon designed and made two built-in wardrobes in our master bedroom. They make really good use of limited space, are beautifully made and absolutely what we wanted. Highly recommended!"
