We used Home Tales to design our Victorian end of terrace rear/side extension and loft conversion. The team were fabulous from start to finish - always very responsive, helpful and friendly. Our designer listened to our requirements, produced three great proposals and was happy to make as many tweaks as we wanted until we settled on the final design. Planning permission was granted quickly and Rachel and Clara very helpfully answered any questions we had throughout the whole process. We are due to start our build next year and can't wait to see the designs come to life! We would highly recommend Home Tales' services.
The team at Home Tales have been great, very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. They were always keen to ensure we were happy with our loft conversion designs and never had any problems to make any of the changes we requested. Great team, recommended.
Home Tales were a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire design process. They took on board all our requirements and ideas and came back with several different options. They responded promptly to all our questions, explained everything clearly and were very accommodating when we asked them to make some changes to the plans. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
We had a great experience with Home Tales. Samira’s designs for our internal renovation project were exactly what we were looking for. She understood what we wanted and suggested new lots of new ideas that worked for us. The whole Home Tales team were very responsive and were able to work within our timeframe, including preparing structural calculations and arranging for planning permission. Would strongly recommend anyone using.
The Home Tales team made the planning of our side return extension incredibly easy, helping us every step of the way. They did all the boring planning permission for us too and we now have all the structural plans and nothing to do apart from get quotes from builders to start work this year. They provide a lot for the price, we highly recommend them.
I had a clear idea of what I wanted when I reached out to Home Tales for architectural design. They made further suggestions of renovation work that I hadn't previously thought of and didn't know would have been possible. The final design which they put through planning for me creates more living space and is likely to add value to my property once the build is complete. I'm so excited to see how much the space will improve now that the build stages are beginning.
We used Home Tales for a side return extension to our house in Wandsworth and cannot fault them. They were fantastic value, incredibly responsive and very pleasant to deal with. Rachel in particular was brilliant and they’re all very knowledgable in their field. They managed the process of obtaining planning permission and preparing the detailed schedule of works for the builder which made things so much easier and we felt like we were in good. After their involvement finished they were still happy to answer any questions we had. Honestly can’t recommend them enough.
Home Tales did a fantastic job designing and planning our loft conversion and ground floor extension. Clara and Rachel were an absolute pleasure to work with. They took us through what would have been a very complex and challenging process and made it feel clear and straight forward. The full pack that they produced was fantastic (with planning permission for both projects achieved in great time), they were professional, timely, but most importantly (for us) they were always available and responsive to our concerns and questions. Thank you both for your help. We will recommend you onwards
HomeTales helped us with our loft conversion process - from the initial meeting with the architect, through to submitting planning permissions, and finally to providing structural drawings for our builder. We could not be happier with their service - friendly, timely and open to amendments etc when needed. Our designer Stephen was great in accommodating our requests and has really maximised the potential space and Rachel in the office was extremely responsive and gave us great confidence that she was on top of our project from start to finish (chasing the council throughout the planning process etc). We will definitely use them again for any future projects!
The team at Home Tales were professional and friendly throughout the process of designing our wraparound extension and then aiding us with the planning process as well. I would thoroughly recommend them.
Amazing service! Can't recommend them highly enough! Great communication, quick turnaround of the plans, lots of patience with changes and transparent pricing. We loved working with Clara and Rachel from Home Tales. They made the whole process easy and enjoyable. They listened to our wishes and always explained everything. Would definitely work with them again on a next project.
Very kind and excellent service. I needed check the feasibility of my idea to renovate my home and these guys gave me everything I needed to know and more.
Can thoroughly recommend Home Tales. Really nice, reliable people to work with. Communication very good indeed. They listen to you properly and work hard to try to achieve what you want. They meet all deadlines. Very good standard of work. We would go back to them for any future projects.
I would highly recommend Hometales to anyone starting a renovation project. From day one they were very engaging and delivered work on time and to a high standard. They were on hand to answer any query and responded quickly, and always offered their expert opinion. Nothing was ever too much. The pricing was very competitive and detailed so you know exactly what you are paying and when. Thank you!
I have had a really good experience with this company. Kept me well informed at every stage of the process and they were also happy to provide advice and recommendations for builders and party wall surveyors.
Quick responses to my emails at all stages of the process and always friendly and professional. Many thanks
Really professional service. The team is clearly very knowledgeable about design projects and really helped guide us through the process, answering plenty of questions and making suggestions about other reputable businesses to use as part of the build process. Being able to see one of their projects at an open house was really useful too.
