Some recent testimonial extracts:


Just a quick note to say a big thank you to everyone that has worked on my project. For all of your hard work and helping me through the build. It is much appreciated. I am really pleased with the work you have done on my extension.

Mrs Sharp, Upottery

PROJECT: October 2015 - Joinery, carpentry, plastering and decoration to house extension


I would like to say that Robin and the team at Keith Farmer Building Services did a first class job in getting the partially built house which was part of my late father’s estate through Building Regulations and in a position to be sold. There were a number of issues along the way but each time these were tackled with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. Nothing was too much trouble for Robin and it was real pleasure to deal with a firm that makes a point of keeping you up-to-date throughout the whole process whilst employing a “can-do” approach to any difficulties. I would strongly recommend Keith Farmer Building Services and consider we got incredibly lucky choosing them to deal with our property.

Stephen and Beverly King, Wellington

PROJECT: December 2014 - Project Manage New Build to Completion to get to a sellable condition 

"I just wanted to thank you and your team for doing such a great job in getting our change of use through. We hope to get the keys to our new building tomorrow (if the bank gets its act together) and are excited about our future there in the town centre."

Pastor Judith Butler - Kingdom Faith, Taunton

PROJECT: Change of use of offices to a New Church and meeting rooms

"Many thanks for your expert advice concerning structural issues at our house, and for organising retrospective planning permission for the extension at our home - you really have sorted out a big problem for us - Please rest assured that I will be in touch for some more architectural assistance at the new house - just as soon as our sale finally completes"

Jay Spence, Taunton

PROJECT:  Remedial work and planning consultancy following a bad experience with a local 'cowboy builder'.

"I wish to thank your team again for an excellent service. Despite my initial hesitation you have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the final designs are going to suit me perfectly.  The 3D sketches you did for me really made your ideas come to life in front of my eyes: once I saw the finished building in your computer I knew exactly what I was looking for!  I simply can't wait for the builders to finish so we can finally enjoy views of the garden from the kitchen! Thank you again"

S Sturr, Somerset

PROJECT:  Kitchen Extension - Architectural Design

"To all at Keith Farmer Associates; a quick note to say thank you for a wonderful result with our planning applications;  When we first approached the council to sort out our planning permission we left their offices with heavy hearts and mre questions than answers - we never thought it would actually be possible to finish our building work! Yet, despite an unhelpfully negative planning officer, you seem to have achieved the impossible for us!  We are so happy with the finished results (now that the building work is complete anyway!)... ...thanks for all your hard work"

P & S, Blackdown Hills

PROJECT: Wanted to convert a dilapidated agricultural shed to offices and workshops for a natural textiles business.

"...many thanks for your guidance and plans for alterations [to the house]. Your advice and ideas are absolutely on the button and your suggestions for the old cart shed will make a fantastic addition to our property. The difference your scheme is going to make to the house is inspired! Why didn't we think of it before? It all seems so obvious now!"

M & J Padre

PROJECT: Alterations to a country house & holiday business - Dartmoor National Park
