"Building a home is a difficult challenge for anyone, building a complex home when you are on the other side of the world in the United Kingdom for the first six months of the build is a real challenge. Friends told us that we must be mad but having a contractor with great skill and an understanding that it is your home – not just a house – is a rare find and with Steve Haycock and his team we felt truly blessed. From day one of a 12 month build with the amazing Mike Ingham running the site, we knew we were in good and caring hands. I (Bernard) have built many major high quality retail projects around the word and am very demanding on standards. It is not often I can say that something has exceeded my standards – however, our new home has. We had no cross words, because Steve and the team gave no reason to have any arguments, they were always on the front foot, inventive, precise and nothing was too much trouble. Building a very modern home is unforgiving and there is no hiding place for poor workmanship and Mike will not tolerate a hint of poor workmanship – building to him is not a job, it's a vocation. We have the most amazing home and we owe Steve, Mike and the entire team a big thank you for giving us a piece of heaven on the waterfront. If anyone wants a personal recommendation on Steve Haycock Construction, we would be delighted to do so".
