We bought a 1 1/2 storey ‘shed’ made out of bits of other buildings with very constrained planning permission. Hickman and Smith have creatively designed us a comfortable 3 bedroom home including very usable rooms with storage upstairs where we only expected a loft space. They listened and took on board all our requests and it was great to be involved in a collaborative process. Almost every issue was resolved with a good solution – not compromise. The contract management service provided a good interface with our builder and other contractors. The end result is a very special ‘forever’ home in a lovely rural setting. Special thanks to Amy and David.
