‘’We started working with FOB  to discuss gaining planning permission for a conservatory to the side of the farmhouse.

FOB developed our ideas and also put forward alternative options  that could radically  transform the dwelling  and gardens within the same budget. FOB’s approach, using models and 3D view s, allowed us to see what we were getting and make decisions.

Most of the work was self-build as so FOB detailed the works so that it could be easily constructed in packages. The main building work has recently completed and  has completely changed the way we live and use the farmhouse.

We would have no hesitation in recommending FOB.’’
