We are absolutely delighted with the building work and alterations we recently undertook to improve the bungalow.  We have had a single storey extension built at the rear with patio doors and a lantern roof. This really is a ‘WOW’ feature and an immediate talking point when family and friends visit.  Internally, the kitchen was moved to a different site and a new kitchen installed. The old kitchen is now the dining room. The foresight and attention to detail Ged gave to this project was first class.  I definitely recommend ‘Ged’s Gang”. If, in the future, a further project is proposed, G and G Builders will be the first phone call.
