Hello Jamie,

I am really delighted with everything you've made for me, thank you so much and particularly for your patience with sorting out the troublesome TV mounting exercise. Also for leaving the house so clean and tidy because I was pretty jaded when we got back yesterday evening and it was lovely to be able to just watch TV without great pressure to tidy and hoover straight away.

Hi Jamie,
I don't know if you remember but you made a lovely radiator cover, and some external joinery for us last autumn.
I'm now restoring a fireplace in our front room and would also like to install cupboards and bookshelves either side of it. I saw you had some nice examples of these on your website. Would you be able to take a look and provide a quote?
Thanks very much,

A year ago or so you have done a fantastic repair to our stairs in SW11 and it is still as good as when you have finished it.

It will really change the look of our living room. I hope you've had a chance to relax this weekend, after all your hard work!

Dear Jamie,

Our new kitchen is fantastic!

We continue to be impressed by your commitment, expertise and ability to do anything asked of you. Despite having to cut some of the world's worst tiles, you hung in there and persevered. A lesser man may have run from the building, never to be seen again!

Many, many thanks for all your hard work.

Yours sincerely,

Kevin and Nicky (New Cross SE14) 13 May 2009


Many thanks for your work.

Best wishes

Owen (Tooting SW17) 28 April 2009

Dear Jamie,

Thank you for all your work in our flat and putting up both the mirrors too.

Everything looks fantastic.

Many thanks

Gina and Alex (Bethnal Green E2) 22 April 2009

We found Jamie Parr to be efficient and reliable and would have no hesitation in recommending him. Our wardrobe was built on time and beautifully finished, with panels, cornices etc to match some of the original features in the room. He had lots of ideas and was careful to explore a variety of suggestions with us. We wanted to maximise a small space but were concerned that a built in wardrobe would dominate the room. In fact, the wardrobe is elegant and well designed and makes best use of the space available.

Anna (Herne Hill SE24) 10 February 2009

Dear Jamie,

I was very impressed by your prompt, competent and reasonably priced work. I'll certainly be in touch if we have any further carpentry jobs.

Kind regards,

Iain (Sinara Consultants Limited SE1) 24 November 2008

Hi Jamie

Thanks for a marvellous piece of work again - its looks fab. Sorry to have missed you on the final day to have not been able to say thanks in person.

Thanks again and kind regards,

Emma, (Norwood SE21) 7 October 2008


I am just writing to thank you for the work done at my house. It was great that you started on time, finished early (your original estimate I think was two days) and you and your colleague worked solidly to finish a good job.

Thanks very much.

Sue ( London SE22) 31 August 2008

Thank you again for the lovely job you did, we are enjoying the new kitchen layout and the new fridge a lot.

Mr Alverson (London SE13) 11 September 2008

Hello Jamie

Thank you so much - the door frame is a great solution and looks great. (as of course does the kitchen).

Have a great weekend.

Thanks again Jamie

Fiona ( Primrose Hill NW1) 18 July 2008

Hi Jamie,

I'd just like to say you did a great job. It was a refreshing change to come home and be happy with the work that has been done!.


Jeanette (Camden NW1) 21 May 2008

Hi Jamie

No need for you to reply to this - but just to quickly say thanks for doing a great job on the shelves. They look fantastic and I'm really, really pleased with them.

Kind regards,

Ms J (London SE21) 21 May 2008

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for your work. We think the shelves look great.


Hannah (London SE7) 10 May 2008


Thanks so much for the wonderful work you did for us.

We're absolutely thrilled with the hall, skirting and bedroom window and could never have achieved a finish like this ourselves (plus it would have taken us months!)

We'll definitely be calling on you to complete the other work.

Best wishes

Christine and Mark (Crystal Palace SE19) 15 December 2007

Hoopers Bar (Ivanhoe Road, East Dulwich, London, SE5) 28 June 2007

Dear Jamie,

Thank you for fitting up the new cupboard's. They have completely changed, for the better the look of my room. I also want to thank you for your professionalism,you wasted no time, gave attention all the little details and left the work well finished and the room clean. Over the years I have had a number of things done in my flat and a number have been rather careless and slapdash in there final outcome.

So with thanks again

R Conner ( London SW6) 7 June 2007

Dear Jamie,

Thank you very much!

So much better and everyone is very happy.

I won't hesitate to contact you again should anything else need fixing.

C Harris ( Japan local government centre Whitehall SW1A) 29 October 2006

"Jamie and Tyrone did a very good job on my bookshelves, kitchen units and building an oriental style sofa. The shelves and the sofa had unusual design features and needed them to think imaginatively and solve some problems as they went along, and they did this really cleverly. Their work is steady and safe, and methodical; they turn up and finish on time, and stick to budget. Overall I am very satisfied and look forward to working with Jamie and team some more."

thanks again for all your work!

Mohammad ( Regents park NW1 ) 24 October 2006

Thanks Jamie

The units look great – I’m really pleased and would be happy to give references if you ever need them.

Many thanks

Matt (Shepherds Bush W3) 11 August 2006

Dear Jamie,

Thank you so much for the gorgeous wardrobes.

Great work!

Suzi and Dom (Chiswick W4) 5 May 2006

Thank you very much for building the vanity unit cupboards, bath surround and boxing in of the pipes in my new bathrooms.

Your workmanship is to a very high standard and the final appearance is just as I hoped.

Your cheerful nature made it a pleasure to have you in the house and I wish you every success in the future.

Mrs Williams (Pimlico SW1) 1 March 2006

Hi Jamie

We were really pleased with the quality of your work and service and will be sure to contact you in the future when we require further carpentry and joinery work (starting with the front door).

Thanks again

Michelle (Nunhead SE4) 5 December 2005

Dear Mr Parr,

It is very nice to be able to give my son the climbing frame before Christmas, it will be a great present for him.

Thank you,

Ms Taylor (Croydon, Surrey) 4 December 2005

Dear Jamie,

many thanks for the receipt and for such excellent workmanship.

It is exactly what we needed!!

Best wishes

Chris (Brixton SW4) 31 October 2005

Thank you for your excellent work jamie


Brett (I Am Human Ltd London EC2A) 28 October 2005

This is just a short note to thank you for making my house so beautiful. When you started the work in late summer last year I never dreamt I would be so thrilled with the result.

The cupboards and shelves in the sitting room are so smart everyone comments on them; the radiator covers finish off the sitting room completely. You also did lots of extra bits of work on my kitchen door, hall door and attic door, not to mention making the frames for my fabric pictures, helping put up other pictures and fixing cupboard handles.

I think the two of you operate really well as a team – which is very important for the sort of work you do. It is because of this team spirit that people can depend on you to give them exactly what they want. I hope you will both go from strength to strength and I shall follow your progress with considerable interest.

Ruth ( East Dulwich SE22) 6 June 2005

Jamie Parr has done two jobs for us. Each time his work has been very professional. He is reliable,punctual,tidy,strightforward to deal with and easy to have around the house. His prices are reasonable and he sticks to his estimates. He makes service to his clients a priority. He and his colleague Tyrone work well as a team. Based on the jobs he has done for us,we are happy to recommend his work.

David and Sue ( Fulham SW6) 12 May 2005

It would be impossible for me to praise Jamie too highly for the work that he and his colleague, Tyrone Ellis, have carried out in my flat.

It started with what seemed like a boring kitchen refurbishment. But that was not straightforward and needed design input and amendment.

And then it developed into a full-blown project within my home. The creativity shown by Jamie was transformed into technical genius when he built an office that folds away into a cupboard under the stairs and a solid ash ladder, complete with wooden wheels, so that I can get to the top of my newly-built (by Jamie and Tyrone) walk-in wardrobe, without resorting to hunting down the stepladder.

Not only is there great creative and technical talent within the team, they are also a joy to have in the house.

Every appointment was kept and every job finished to a standard that exceeded my expectations. They are polite, conscientious, tidy and mindful of causing the least disruption to a working household and minimising costs without ever compromising quality.

Miss T (London W9) 20 April 2005

Early last year, I decided that enough was enough. I was determined to replace the cupboard in my sitting room with something that had proper, not sliding, doors and a back panel. So I rang my roofer...

This is not as crazy as it sounds. Jamie Parr came to me highly recommended by my roofer, and I was soon to discover what a gem he was.

I contacted Jamie and we arranged that he would come and take some measurements one evening in the week. He arrived on the dot – not a minute earlier or later. He then proceeded to suggest what might be done with the space we had, took some measurements and promised to email me with drawings and an estimate. This itself was a departure from the norm – Jamie emailed me within the week and I was so impressed I immediately told him to go ahead.

In the few weeks it took to do the job, things went very smoothly. Jamie brought me a sample of the wood he was going to use, kept me up to date with progress and finally came and fitted two cupboards in the sitting room alcoves and 6 shelves. They were stained and varnished within a few days and brass handles put on.

I was overjoyed – the result was stunning and I couldn't wait to put my pictures, ornaments and books on the shelves and other things in the cupboards.

Jamie had proved himself to be a consummate craftsman – a master carpenter who is very skilled in his trade. He was professional throughout, a good time-keeper who came and went when he said he would and someone who did such a good job there was nothing to complain about. I have now used him more than once and told others about him.

Jamie Parr is a genius craftsman in wood trades; he delivers to a high standard, takes pride in his work, is courteous, reliable, hard-working and tidy. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wanting their property enhanced by the talents and artistry he brings to every job.

Miss R H L, (Dulwich SE22) 5 April 2005

Dear Jamie,

I appreciate the way you carried out the work together with your colleague Tyrone.

I would like to thank you both for the diligent way in which the work was done in order to meet my requirements
