MR & MRS THORLEY
In early 2016 we approached Kuno to ask if he would be able to fit a new kitchen for us. We had seen the standards of workmanship from that described on his website and that encouraged us to make the request. We knew what we wanted and who we wanted to do the job, equally we were aware that he was very busy but we were quite happy to wait.
The kitchen has now been installed and completed within the timeframe indicated by Kuno. To say that we are please would be an understatement, we are delighted. The quality and finish demonstrated by all the trades is nothing short of excellent.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Kuno Jackson Building to anyone.

STURTON BY STOW
Our family selected Kuno Jackson to complete a loft conversion with a new family annexe, a decision that paid dividends during the building process. His practical technical expertise enabled some significant groundwork issues to be resolved in cost effective ways that complied with building regulations. Keeping us informed, he outlined the alternative solutions and cost implications. Acting on his advice, the building works progressed to a satsifactory solution.
The loft conversion benefitted from Kuno's practical approach to the use of available space. The annexe benefits from green energy with underfloor heating through a ground source heat pump. Kuno has experience of installing such equipment and we had confidence in his ability to deal with the supplier on our behalf.
From the external brickwork to the internal decoration, the finish is first class. Kuno issued regular progress reports, along with prompts to us to choose fixtures and fittings in a timely manner, ensuring minimal delay to the completion date.
Kuno Jackson completed our project to the highest standards by offering practical, cost effective guidance to enable use to enjoy the home that exceeds our dreams.

PLOUGH HOUSE - PERIOD HOUSE RENOVATION
In 2013 we purchased a Victorian House in need of a good deal of renovation. It was tired, very damp and draughty but asie from a few sixties alterations still retaining much of its Victorian charm. We wanted to retain as much of the originality of the house as possible and restore it as faithfully as possible to its original layout and feel. We set about finding a builder who would carry out the work sympathetically and to whom we could easily communication our ideas. From our very first meeting at the house on a cold November morning through all the unforeseen difficulties that arise in a project of this type, Kuno Jackson proved to be positive in his approach, professional and always ready with a solution. The project started on time, the team were hard working and eager to please and Kuno himself always available if needed.
So, if you want a builder who is a good communicator, who will strive to meet your requirements, who will be ready and able to solve problems when they arise, who sets himself high standards and expects the same from his team and who, above all else, remains positive no matter what the problem - Kuno Jackson, is your man!
The renovation of the house both met and exceeded our expectations.
We have no hesitation in recommending Kuno as the builder for your project.

THE GATEHOUSE - LARGE EXTENSION
In 2001 we bought our new home, we had two small boys and one 6 months, as time progressed and the boys grew, we decided that we have grown into our home and was now fit for bursting. Around 2 years ago, we decided that we either had to move or to extend our home and as we loved where we live, it was not a difficult choice.
Having invited several builders round, we then met Kuno Jackson and what a good day that turned out to be! Kuno was professional, patient, informative and most of all listened to all our hopes and aspirations, he was a breath of fresh air compared to the others. He have good suggestions not with the intent to increase his price but with the clear intent of providing us with the best possible construction whilst maintaining our budget.
Kuno guided us through the whole procedure of an architect, planning and building inspector.
Our extension required the demolition of a single storey kitchen. Prior to that, we then met some of his workforce, who made and plumbed into my lounge a temporary kitchen, I think this was the first time I heard Kuno say "there are no problems- only solutions". We found Kuno's workforce, very hard working, aiming to please at all times and very clean and tidy.
Finally our home extension is complete, we are so pleased, it has exceeded our dreams.
When we decided to extend our house, we wanted to find a builder who could translate our imaginings into reality. On a visit to a nearby restaurant, many of the features of the new dining/sun room were just what we were looking for so we tracked down the builder who impressed us with his foresight, vision, and ability to suggest practical solutions to potential problems.
Kuno had a real understanding of how we wanted the finished product to look, and he and the architect came up with an extension that had everything we asked for.
The demolition phase was the worst, when we were living with props and plastic sheeting, but even that wasn’t too bad. The project took just over three months once we had obtained the planning permission, and all of the team from labourers to painters were a delight to have around - and it’s not often you hear that about builders! There were a few breath-holding moments when the huge window frame was installed but we needn’t have worried, it fitted to perfection.
The quality of the build was excellent and Kuno acted as project manager throughout, even driving to Sussex to collect some bricks for a perfect match to the existing walls. In the six months afterwards there were very few snagging or settlement problems, but those that did arise were dealt with promptly and efficiently.
The sun room has surpassed our expectations and everyone who has seen it has had the same reaction…Wow!
We have lived in it almost constantly since, even through the winter months and have no intention of moving, but if we ever did, Kuno and his team would be at the top of the list for any work that was need
MR P HUMBERSTONE & MISS BERRY
We chose KJB following recommendations from previous clients of his. Our initial request was for an opinion on a property we were considering as a renovation project. Kuno generously advised us through the purchase and was ultimately commissioned to undertake the renovation.
We were, and still are, very happy with the standard of, not only the building work, but that of all the other contractors appointed by Kuno in his position as our project manager. Not that his input stopped there, he also gave sound advice regarding the design aspects of the renovation, taught us how to undertake some of the more simple tasks ourselves, acted as counsellor during some of the more stressful times and has continued to generously give advice and support well after completion of his part of the process.
We feel very fortunate to have appointed Kuno as our builder and have given him our personal recommendation on numerous occasions over the last two years.
MR & MRS CAMPBELL
SOUTH RAUCEBY, SLEAFORD
We met Kuno through Sleaford Golf Club and we had been told he was a good builder. We were pleased when he came to look at our potential extension. Due to his wealth of building experience we felt at ease and he helped us find a good architect and assisted us with the planning process. We had a garage/workshop built first - so that we had plenty of storage for the building materials.
The original bungalow was a boring 1960's build and when we asked if we could have a vaulted ceiling in the extension - Kuno said we could have whatever we wanted! Although the extension is one end of the bungalow, you would never know. The whole property has had new windows, doors, was re-roofed and rebricked with a lovely golden brickwork.
When we pull in our driveway and look at the bungalow - we know why we asked Kuno to do the work for us and would certainly recommend him to others.
MR & MRS CHANT
RENOVATION TO CHAPEL
Kuno and his team have completed 3 projects for us to date and the work has always been finished to a very high standard and beyond our expectations.
Our property is a little out of the ordinary and we are delighted by the ‘sympathetic’ methods and materials that Kuno has gone out of his way to find. Our renovated brickwork is beautiful to behold!
Kuno is brilliant at visualising what and how the job should be done, and conveys a sense of calm organised confidence
The team are always polite, pleasant, professional and very tidy.
The latest project Kuno undertook for us was re-configuring an unloved space to create a dream bedroom with ensuite and dressing area. We have so much confidence in Kuno and his team that we went off on holiday and left them to it, including the final layout, design and choosing of all the fittings.
We would recommend Kuno to anyone!
MR & MRS DAWE
Internal Alterations to Kitchen and Dining Room
We are extremely happy with the work carried out by Kuno Jackson and his team; the demolition work left no mess, we were very impressed how much care was taken to keep the rest of the property clean and free from dirt and dust. Throughout the works the workers were considerate of our needs and wishes and showed a great deal of respect for both us and our home. They always left the area clean and tidy at the end of every working day and were able to resolve issues without fuss.
The level of workmanship and attention to detail was excellent, the finished room is testament to the quality of work provided by the team.
Overall we give 10 out of 10 for every aspect of the works carried out.
MR & MRS STIFF
2 STOREY EXTENSION WITH SUN ROOM
Like many people, we didn’t have any experience with building contractors prior to our extension in 2012. We had a shortlist of contractors that we asked for quotes and out of those we chose Kuno Jackson. There were a number of different factors that we took into consideration but the most important was that we were quickly able to trust him. When he left after our first meeting with him, we both said “bet he’ll be expensive”. Luckily for us we received a very competitive quote and so the choice was made.
Since then we have been impressed with the dedication and helpfulness of everyone who was involved in the work on our home, from the first day right up until completion we have not had one single cause for complaint. The thoughtfulness and consideration shown to us by Kuno has been mirrored in every member of his team.
Not only have we been free to make our own decisions about what we wanted and how to go about it, Kuno has also been happy to offer guidance and make suggestions about the best way to achieve our goal – it is this ability to understand what we want to achieve and to offer solutions that really set Kuno apart from the competition.
The workmanship has been first class and we now have the home we had envisaged, all we need now is some good weather to enjoy it!
