"This is to confirm that I have known and employed Richard over a period of seven years during which time he has converted several of my Dutch barges and especially upon my own personal Dutch barge in which he conducted and oversaw a £165,000 refurbishing programme.   Capable as he is working with several materials commonly used in construction, he comes into his own as a carpenter.


He is diligent, careful, creative and reliable.  His knowledge of wood; the varieties, textures, strengths and suitability for specific tasks is extraordinary.   His talent for quickly shaping wood into serviceable, beautiful and practical shapes is a joy to watch.   He fully deserves the title of Master Craftsman.


As he is also honest, efficient and a thorough gentleman I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone in need of a builder with specific skills in carpentry."


"Thank you, Doodle & Construct for an excellent job of our new extension. We were worried about all of the upheaval of having the building work done but was so pleased with the professional way in which it was completed on time and within budget. We have recommended you to a friend who is also looking for a builder and I would recommend you to anyone."

"I would highly recommend Richard as a builder, carpenter, and decorator.  Richard is a very meticulous/trustworthy person, who cares about his work and endeavours to ensure his customer is happy with the job. He recently redecorated our home, whilst we were on our family holiday. Having used Richard’s services before, we were confident that he would do a great job.  He painted all our walls, woodwork, doors and ceilings, even fed our cat! It was exciting knowing we were coming back to a freshly painted house. We weren't disappointed.  Everything was put back and the house left freshly painted, clean and tidy. Richard also put a fabulous extension onto my friend’s house in Ryarsh, leaving her with a beautiful, new, larger kitchen and hallway.  He even worked during the snowy winter months to complete it. She's very pleased with it."

"We were looking for a local builder and Doodle & Construct was recommended to us to fit a new roof on our extension, we were so impressed with his carpenters high standards of work and his helpfulness that we asked him to do all of our carpentry work thanks once again. Doodle & Construct are certainly builders that I would recommend."

"Thank you so much Doodle & Construct for an excellent job of our loft conversion. You finished within time and on a budget. Thank you for always leaving our house tidy at the end of each day.  I have since recommended you to friends who would like to have an extension built. Thanks once again for a professional job well done! "

" I live on a Dutch Barge and have employed Richard on a couple of occasions. First for a complete refit of the bathroom and then when I needed some work done in the kitchen. On both occasions, I found working with him a pleasure. He was easy to communicate with - which has not always been the case with tradesmen and the work was done on time. Most importantly it was done to an excellent standard and I would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending his services.Quality and well-considered builders. A high level of communication with the client resulting in a great finish and no snagging. We may have you back for a third job in the future."

“Fantastic service from Richard! He made some stunning handrails for my boat and they look beautiful. He advised my husband and I on the correct wood to choose from and gave us options regarding collecting the wood direct from the local timber yard. He is clearly a skilled carpenter and we would not hesitate to use his services again. What a great bloke!”

"Top Quality and well considered builders. A high level of communication with the client resulting in great finish and no snagging. We may have you back for a third job in the future Thank you Richard. "
