I first contacted Ruth back in January 2015 with a view to converting my old cellar into a habitable area/cinema room. The project was going to be a major one and had been in the planning for many years. The cellar in question was only accessible from the front of the property and was directly located below the ground floor of the property, so a staircase would have to be built leading down from the ground floor (kitchen/living room). Ruth recommended a local French builder called Jean-Jacques to carry out the building work (and a superb one he was too). She project managed from start to finish, including liaising with the town hall with regards to planning permission all the way through to completion of the project, which took a lot of pressure off me. She suggested installing a concrete beam and block floor, raised off the floor and installing a drainage system underneath from all sides of the room.

I contacted Ruth for advice about a house my mother was thinking of buying, but which had cracks in the facade. Ruth responded really quickly to me email and was extremely helpful: she offered sound advice, a range of options for surveying the house and great availability to fit in with my schedule. She really put my mind at ease and I would gladly ask for her help again in the future. Thank you Ruth!

French builders are not easy to deal with, both in getting them to start work and also dealing with the French, particularly if they have a strong local accent. So having Ruth to manage our project was great. She has contacts into various builders with different skills and organised everything. It was also great having someone you trusted with the keys and so we were able to have the work done when we were not there, avoiding all the mess and disruption. We will certainly use her again when we have another project to do.
