Sincerely touched by satisfied client showering us with praise, “Dear Gordon, We want to thank you for the most beautiful and interesting extension you have created here. It is such a pleasure to come across people who are exceptional at what they do and goodness you are indeed that. I feel so lucky that the design and choice of materials that you advised are just so right. The thing is, we will always love it, it’s not just a novelty. We are grateful to you for this and the attention you gave to this project. Very best wishes” and a voucher for Cornelius

Email from a happy client at Rockville Terrace, received whilst on a concert tour in Dublin “Hi Gordon, I just wanted to say to you how magic your design is. It’s just brilliant. It’s so interesting inside and out. I just love it and wouldn’t change anything about it. The more it comes together the more I realise how good it is. Enjoy your weekend”
