What the client said

“Sharp Edge helped us achieve our dream holiday home – they’re quick and efficient, very imaginative, and have delivered work to the highest standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sharp Edge to anyone looking for a traditional builder who knows how to use local materials to the best effect.

We were delighted with the way the new additions blended in with the age and character of our traditional Victorian cottage. The slate garden seat looks like it’s always been there!

Sharp Edge helped us achieve some really clever use of limited space at Verger’s Cottage.

A redundant corridor became Keswick’s smallest study combined with a really well-equipped utility room.

A wasted space in the downstairs loo proved to be just right for a second shower room.

And thoughtful use of flooring materials and outside access means the muddy and wet walking boots and waterproofs never have to make contact with that beautiful oak floor.

Sharp Edge are well named – always a quick and sharp response to our building requests, and they certainly have given us an edge over competing holiday properties.”
