Walnut Cottage front elevation 2

Tombs Developments Dom Cook and Iain Tombs took on a precision specified technically complex large scale (560 sq m) new build 5 bedroom, four storey contemporary house for us. Our fully integrated Eco-home is packed with high-end technology. The build type and materials were all novel and the build took 2 years to complete spanning two of the worst winters and wettest springs on record, yet no-one complained or jibbed. The complexity of this build dumbfounded much larger building & architect firms.

To make it even more difficult for our builders we were highly engaged clients who required our builders to build to the drawings exactly, build perfectly, using technically complex top-drawer materials to an excellent finished result. No sweat then!

Tombs Developments are an exceptional team. Dom is a consummate sub-contractor man-manager with a nimble practical brain, and Iain fulfils the Project Management, Purchasing, and Project accounting roles with ease. We can honestly say that their collegiate style, and can-do personalities were a pleasure to work with. We actually never fell out during the whole stressful build process. We simply worked through solutions together & I recall a lot of laughter.

I’m so glad Tombs Developments agreed to build for us. My home is a thousand times better than I could have imagined because our builders and their sub-contractors put something special into it: their care, their skills, their pride and their love.
