We chose Fountain Construction because they are a family run business with an enviable reputation for high standards of building work throughout Northamptonshire. They quickly proved themselves to be a modern forward thinking builder totally focussed in pursuit of excellence. Whilst we purchased ‘off plan’ we did require a number of bespoke internal projects that were challenging, but these were met positively and completed with total satisfaction. Fountain Construction have through hard work, attention to detail and passion, built us a house we are proud of. We would strongly recommend Tom, Gina and team for any building work that you require.
We agreed to buy Squirrels Leap when the build was only at floor slab level. We were closely involved with building our new home. We had and still have an excellent working relationship with Tom Fountain and we were always made most welcome on site. The design was fixed. However, our early exchange of contract meant that we were in a position to self select many items have resulted in the house being our true home. Very quickly we built up a close working relationship with Tom, Gina and all the subcontractors and suppliers. Everyone tried so hard to help us build our dream home. All involved are quite rightly very proud of the excellent level of work that they produce. Yes it was a leap of faith that Squirrels Leap would be all that we wished it to be. The journey to achieve a dream home was exciting. We devoted many hours of research and then decision making into how we wanted our new home to be. Tom guided us through the complicated process of the build and we kept on target with the decision-making, for example, working on the practicalities of kitchen design to choosing the lighting and socket plates. Every detail makes a difference and needs to be focused upon. This has resulted in Squirrels Leap being a home we are very happy and proud to live in. A big thank you to all who were involved.
Having to demolish and build a brand new home is stressful enough but then add the fact that we were living abroad whilst the build happened, this can only add to stress levels. However, quite simply, we cannot recommend Fountain Construction (Tom and his teams) highly enough. They do what it says on the van - ‘Building to the future, maintaining the past.’ He simply did that for us and we are so happy.
Tom and his team have surpassed my expectations. The quality of workmanship and creativity is second to none. As well as standard of work, what sets Tom and his team aside from other builders is project management. Tom is meticulous with the scheduling process. Everything runs smoothly, in time and on budget.
We chose to use Fountain Construction as we knew someone who had used them and recommended them. I can honestly say on every level they were absolutely brilliant. Our whole new build experience was a pleasure from start to finish, I’m not sure how many people can say that when building their home, and it was purely because of Tom and his professional team. Our finished product is amazing. I couldn’t recommend this company enough! I’d quite like to do it again really!
Every aspect of the project from initial planning through guidance and suggestions during the build was faultless. Weather and lead times proved challenging but the communication between Tom and ourselves throughout still met the timescale quoted. It has given us exactly what we wanted. Everyone who worked on it demonstrated the highest standards of workmanship and the result has exceeded our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail is clear to see now and will be for many years to come. We would recommend Fountain Construction to anyone.
