What our happy clients are saying…

“We found Benjamin Henry to have the many advantages of a small company. The service on a daily basis over a couple of months was invariably courteous and capable of adapting to last minute ideas and changes of plan. Ben (on site nearly every day) was always available for a chat about developments, open to ideas and suggestions but also clear about which ideas were better, more feasible, and which were not. Unexpected occurrences were calmly taken in the builders’ stride and there was always a quiet but busy work ethic on site. Ben expects and secures high standards from all his team.

All the accounting processes were transparent and meticulously honest and small householder ‘projects’ that were not immediately connected to the main one and not part of the original plan, all of the team were happy to help with when time allowed.

The quality of the workmanship is very high, the finishing detail particularly so. We would happily recommend Benjamin Henry for a wide variety of building works.”

- Mr & Mrs Paul

“I engaged Benjamin Henry to help me with building two traditional log cabins, and also renovations to the farmhouse and agricultural buildings. They are trustworthy and hardworking, great at problem-solving and coming up with creative ways to get things done whilst maintaining the character of the building. They have good depth of knowledge and experience and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone to build a log cabin or any other building for that matter. All the very best with your future works”

- Mr Sparks

“We commissioned Benjamin Henry to carry out a loft conversion, full length dormer and removal of the chimney stack and we are thrilled with the results.

Throughout the project, the whole team were friendly, professional and sensitive to our needs. The communication was great and rather than feel like we had a company just here to do the project and leave, Ben and his team worked closely with us for the duration, giving us options and different ideas throughout the project which meant we have ended up with a fantastic new space in our house that feels tailor made and personal to our needs.

Nothing was too much trouble and they really went the extra mile which left it stress free for us. It was reassuring to know everything was taken care of which gave us peace of mind.

We are so pleased with the finished project. The standard of work is very high and the new room has transformed our house. I am so pleased we used Benjamin Henry and will definitely use them should we need any projects doing. Highly recommended and a top class service. Many Thanks,”

- Mr and Mrs Dodge

Benjamin Henry was recommended to us by a local tradesperson in South Somerset as a quality carpenter. Ben offered his services to take on the Project Management role for both extensions and we felt extremely comfortable, at this early stage, that the project was being placed in a safe pair of hands. Throughout the project, Ben suggested various enhancements to achieve the best possible outcomes for various aspects of the project and we are now the owners of a home which complements our lifestyle. All the work was completed with a high degree of professionalism and this was due to the way in which Ben managed the trades and scheduled the flow of activities. The timber and exposed woodwork features of the extensions exude quality and are testimony to Ben’s carpentry skills.”

- Eric Vose & Amanda Horn

A rare find, Ben and his team are brilliant. Reliable, trustworthy, diligent and finish the job to an extremely high standard. From simple easy budgeting which was important to us to always being available to respond to queries and snagging Ben and his team are 1st class.

- Martin Webb

“Commissioned Benjamin Henry to create a custom DVD cabinet for a large collection. It couldn’t have fitted more perfectly into the space and he couldn’t have fitted more storage into the available space. We’re very pleased and wouldn’t hesitate to commission him again in future.

- Ali Hutchings

Ben and his team transformed our kitchen and living room into spectacular spaces with professionalism and pride. Nothing was too much trouble and the finished quality is first class. His whole team are an absolute credit to Ben and his company and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

- Andrew Mortimer

I commissioned Benjamin Henry to build me a Summerhouse. Our existing summerhouse was too small for the needs of a growing family, and it was falling down. 

Ben came to discuss this project and from the first I was impressed by his flexibility and his desire to find out exactly what I wanted rather than having an agenda of his own. And this continued all the way through the project: at every point he wanted my input and to be sure that what he was designing and building was completely in accord with my wishes.  This did not prevent him from making suggestions if I was undecided, but my overall feeling was that I, the customer, was being completely listened to and the result was that I was – and am- 100% satisfied and delighted with the end product. The construction of it was without too much disruption and mess and always Ben was unfailingly polite and helpful and made sure at every point that I was happy with what was happening. The result was the most superb summerhouse which has proved its use and pleasure for me and my husband, our family and friends, year after year.

- Mr and Mrs C Pack

Cannot recommend Ben highly enough. He has just completed large fitted shelves on either side of the fire place in the front room. This was a major job as the walls weren’t even, and I wanted shelves that were flush with each wall! The result is superb. Really classy and beautifully made. Reasonable price and excellent communication throughout. Will definitely use Ben again. A real find!

- Moria Brown

I commissioned Benjamin Henry for a bespoke four poster bed made from oak with a delicate walnut inlay. I was very impressed with the attention to detail, the stunning finish and after care service. I have recommended him to friends who have gone on to receive similar high quality services.

- Suzanne Howell

We would like to express how pleased we are with the oak framed car port and storeroom Benjamin Henry and his team built for us. He listened to our requirements, sourced all the materials at a great price and has a very good eye for the finishing details. 

Work was carried out on time and nothing was too much trouble polite and respectful to our property. We would recommend Ben and his team if you’re thinking of an exterior building.

- Mr and Mrs Marshall

My wife and I commissioned Benjamin Henry to make us a back door for our house. We were wanting something unique, stylish and something that’s not going to degrade in a few years. When giving our requirements to the business he designed a fantastic door that ticked all our requirements. When they arrived it was fitted fast and fitted perfectly. The finish of the door is fantastic. They were tidy, polite and very trustworthy. We will be looking to use Benjamin Henry again. Thank you, Benjamin Henry.

- Mr and Mrs Robertson

Ben has worked on an array of different projects for us and each one has been approached with much thought, care and precision. We think of Ben each morning whilst waiting for the kettle to boil in admiring his wonderfully rustic yet elegant kitchen shelves! Equally his large oak glazed doors fit in perfectly with the renovation of the listed 17th century barn. Thank you so much Ben!” 

- Tim Herniman

We used Benjamin Henry a few years ago to build custom fitted wardrobes. The job was done beautifully and in a good time frame, with all our specific requirements accounted for. We held onto Ben’s details and sought him out again recently when we had a refurbishment job that needed doing on an old campaign desk/butler’s tray. The finish on this was outstanding and Ben’s work has only improved with time. We would certainly look him up again for adny other work and whole heartedly recommend Benjamin Henry for all and any bespoke carpentry needs.”
