“Lifestyle Homes were recommended by our Architect Mr. Chandler, as a highly reputable company to construct our single storey rear extension project to the ground floor, in a property of ours in Fulham. Lifestyle Homes produced a clear quote and after signing contracts, the work began. I can confirm that the works were completed on time, within budget and to our high standards. The team was left with keys and we left them each morning to get on with works. During the work they acted professionally, were skilled in what they were doing and minimised disruption to everyday life. They were reliable and considerate, so that we knew when to expect them. The work was completed to a high quality and the finish of the work is excellent. Throughout the project, whenever required we met the Project Manager Andrew on site and discussed the details of the project. They worked very well with the architect on the extension and also contributed some of their own useful ideas based on their experience to ensure the best outcome for us. Lifestyle Homes paid regard to any concerns we had as clients and provided a good after sales service. We are completely satisfied with the new rear extension and the other extra works Lifestyle Homes completed, upon our requests. Therefore, I would have no hesitation in recommending Lifestyle Homes to any prospective client.”

“Two young toddlers and two working parents meant that we needed to modernise and expand our 1930’s house to our demanding lifestyle. Consequently, we decided to make an L-shape rear extension to the back of the house with an open plan kitchen, dining area, playroom and living room. Additionally a store room, utility room and patio were also planned to cater for the growing needs. We advertised our work to a wide audience of building firms, resulting in 22 interested companies and finally deciding on Lifestyle Homes. Our decision was made easy by Andrew’s competitive quote, attention to detail and excellent references.
Throughout the project, our Project Manager Andrew listened to our feedback and was extremely responsive to our needs and changing requirements. Balancing the needs of two toddlers without a kitchen was difficult but Andrew helped make it easier by working to our priorities and needs. We adopted many of Lifestyle Homes’ suggestions into the build and have been very pleased with the outcome, especially the finish. We would have no hesitations in recommending the lifestyle team to anyone looking to undertake a similar project.”

“When we found out that I was pregnant with my first child, we decided to have a rear extension built, to add a playroom for the baby and an elegant floor-to-ceiling streamlined kitchen too.
My cousin is an architect and she designed the rear extension and helped with the planning, so this was easy. The difficulty came when beginning to find a competent and trusted company, I asked many friends but no-one wanted to recommend anyone. So I decided to research on local companies that specialised in rear and kitchen extensions and that’s when I came across Lifestyle Homes in the Time and Leisure magazine.
I contacted many other companies this way and had several quotes for the work. I didn’t choose a contractor just on price, I think its paramount that you have a good rapport with the project manager who in our case was Andrew, who was charming throughout. You will be in regular discussions for a few months and you will both see him regularly enough to appreciate the importance that you all think likewise. After seeing two properties Lifestyle Homes had built , one finished and one mid-way through the process and speaking with Andrew a few more times, we decided to engage Lifestyle Homes. The whole process went very well and smoothly.
Andrew is a meticulous manager of all the logistics that go into the project, including the materials, other trades, and building control. I really didn’t have to get involved with these matters and that was great, especially since I was eight months pregnant at the time! The construction team worked very hard and were always punctual too, which matters considerably when you are running your own appointments still. If needed they would put in extra hours to make sure that items were installed and finished, so as not to delay the plan on the Schedule of Works. They were extremely trustworthy, they had full access to the house whilst I was still living there and I always felt safe. The team were also very considerate as over half way into the build, I gave birth to my son! So they were very careful with any mess and noise.
It is a bit scary when they pull down the walls and the only items holding your home are skinny metal poles! At this point, I was contacting Andrew much more than usual and he was always available to listen and reassure us and answer any concerns or questions that we had. Gratefully too, Lifestyle was great at accommodating changes, with minimum or no additional charge to our fixed price quote, that we decided to make whilst in the process and is open to making recommendations. We now have a lovely open plan kitchen- diner and playroom. We’re really happy with the results, its even better than what we expected and now we all use this space, all the time. I can’t wait for the weather, so we can start using the garden and open the bi-folding doors completely and eat al-fresco! I have recommend many friends to use Lifestyle Homes for a large kitchen extension in their homes and already have already had some prospective clients of Lifestyle Homes visit my home and view the excellent finish and talk to me about the process, since I am so pleased.”

“Lifestyle Homes came highly recommended to us by friends who had used them for a similar house project. Despite this, we had our project quoted by others too, in order to get a good range of quotes. Although Lifestyle Homes costs were not the cheapest, they were competitive and we were delighted to engage them for our project, (an L- shaped rear extension, lots of glazing in roof and bi-folding doors to the garden with a new utility room, etc). We were thoroughly impressed by Lifestyle Homes attention to detail and workmanship throughout the project. We had weekly meetings on-site and lots of communication over email and text. Not only was the work carried out to ‘perfectionist’ standards, there were also some fantastic design suggestions which we actually implemented. We went on to have the garden landscaped too, with a shed and a rendered wall concealing it. I have no hesitation in recommending Lifestyle Homes and have done and will continue to do so. I loved that they were local and easy to contact and would only use them for any future works. Andrew, Charlie and the team were professional at all times and we were always very impressed.”

“We chose Lifestyle Homes as they were in the same road as us and they have done a lot of work locally and were a reasonably priced. They undertook the conversion of our loft, providing a new large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom for our eldest daughter. We were very happy with the work and all of the workmen were great. Lifestyle Homes coordinated by Andrew and his team were conscientious and were accommodating to each of our requirements and they even come back six months after the completion to repair minor plaster cracks once the loft settled into place. The other bonus with Lifestyle Homes was that the workmen are very resourceful with lots of initiative for solving any issues that arise along the way. Their building knowledge and construction experience was first class. They finished our loft conversion on budget and it looks fantastic, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!”
Stuart and Diane.
“We knew Lifestyle Homes were a reputable company, as their quote was well laid out, delivered in good time and comparable to the other two quotes given. We decided to go ahead with Lifestyle Homes as they said they would complete our open-plan kitchen-diner prior to Christmas. Not only were they true to their word, but the job was completed to a very high standard. Needless to say we were very impressed with the end result. Andrew and his team were friendly, reliable and the quality of work was second to none. Our friends were also very impressed and asked us who completed the project and subsequently they used Lifestyle Homes too and they too were very happy with their outcome. If you’re looking for attention to detail, quality workmanship coupled with value for money and a tidy work environment, then I can 100% recommend Lifestyle Homes.”

“We are delighted with our kitchen extension and the prompt way in which it was completed. We especially appreciate the attention to detail and always looked forward to our email update at the end of each day. The extra space has changed our lives, as we are now able to sit together every mealtime which is a must for a growing family. We have written a reference about your level of professionalism and we will continue to recommend LifeStyle Homes & Building Solutions Ltd. A BIG thank you to you all.”
