Hi Darren

We just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our garden room. It is everything we had hoped it would be and looks really good at the end of the garden. We cannot recommend your service highly enough, from the initial enquiry to completion, even though we had many tweaks along the way from the original plan. We were also very impressed with the men working alongside you how friendly and obliging you all were, especially in helping to manage our three dogs and ensuring their escape artist antics never came to fruition. We would be more than happy to recommend your business to any potential clients in the future. Many thanks once again.

Kind regards Andy & Gail Gosden

Hi Darren Wanted to drop a note to you on the superb professional service we have received throughout this project Studio looks stunning!!! From the initial discussion at the Kent Show through to last week’s completion the service has been excellent Really took the time to listen and understand both what we were looking for and the budgets open to complete the works. We are blown away by the finished work of the Studio and have had some many great comments from visitors and pictures posted and I am sure many will be contacting you in the future for similar works. Attention to detail and the work the team put in daily were really impressive. We now have a building that will be with us for years and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances and needs.

thoroughly recommend

Hi Darren

Chameleon Specialist Garden Rooms are just that. Special, bespoke, hand-crafted rooms for all round and all-purpose use in the garden.

This is the second time we have gone to them to construct a Garden Room; we we're so impressed the first time.

The whole process, from draft to completion, was effortless on our part. Everything agreed was carried out in a timely and orderly manner.

The Workforce were excellent. Expert, hardworking and conscientious.

We thoroughly recommend them.

All the Best

Punctuality efficiency and good workmanship

Dear Darren, John and Lads

We can’t stop looking at our beautiful cedar wood building. What a work of art! You arrived at the time promised 7.30am and worked so hard throughout the day. It was absolute magic watching everything taking place with such precision. Every layer was measured and remeasured making sure each one was perfect before going to the next stage right to the end.  Punctuality efficiency and good workmanship rarely go together these days but you managed it. Thank you so much for all your efforts and for the end result which is absolutely amazing

Kind regards,

Christine and Keith Redding

The Studio is fab everybody loves it.

Hi Daren,

We are delighted with the garden room, the quality of the build, the care you and your team took with our property and with how easy the whole thing was for us.  We will certainly be happy to give a glowing reference for your services.
Many thanks again to you and your team, you did a great job.

Thanks

Tracy & Simon Xx

Courteous and professional

Hi Darren,

Thank you for building and installing our new Garden Room. From our first visit to your site we have found everyone to be courteous and professional. All communications were accurate and you gave us clear costs and timescales and kept to them. We are delighted with the quality of the finished garden room and shed and it will be great to have the extra space.

Many thanks

Jen

Wish all contractors were that efficient!

Hi Darren,

The building will be used for staff dealing with special needs children.

Really please with it.  Wish I was moving in!

Many thanks for putting it in so quickly for me, really appreciated all the work and the manual you supplied.  Wish all contractors were that efficient!

Thanks

Alison

Helpful and informative

I was very pleased with the professionalism of Southern Sheds. From the outset when choosing a room, Darren was helpful and informative and gave me time to think through exactly what I wanted and needed from my garden room.  He and his colleagues turned up on time and did not create any disturbance to myself or my neighbours. They were considerate, polite and friendly.  The garden room itself is of a much better quality than I imagined and I'm really looking forward to using it. It has provided us with space we can use all year round.

Cheers, Deborah

A pleasure to look at

Hi Darren

This is to thank you very much for the work. From the first visit to your showroom to the final build the whole process has been stress-free (for us at least!).

We were particularly grateful for the way you kept us up to date at every stage and quickly answered our many questions.

The finished garden room (studio) and shed are a pleasure to look at and will be a pleasure to work in too.

As they say in the adverts we would recommend Southern Sheds to anyone. (Actually it's your personal, enthusiastic approach that makes the difference.)

Very best wishes

Andrew (and Lizzie) Akehurst

Cracking job

Hi Darren

Thanks for doing a cracking job. Well impressed with it!                                                                                                       Cheers Martin

Efficient and friendly manner

Just a note to thank Darren and his colleagues for the efficient and friendly manner in which they installed our garden room (workshop!) on this somewhat unusual site.
Best regards

Arnold and Tessa Kingston

Absolutely thrilled

Hello Darren,

I have left you a (lengthy) voice mail message on your work number, and apologies I had intended to call you first thing this morning.

Sammy and I are absolutely thrilled with the finished room; it looks fabulous and exceeds our expectations.

I have to say that you and your team have been excellent, your attention to detail and professional approach to the project has been rather a refreshing experience, if only all companies who we deal with were as conscientious and responsive as yours. Please pass on our thanks to the team, and we very much look forward to enjoying the new addition to our home.

I will of course be passing on your details to friends and colleagues who may also be interested in a similar structure.

All we need to do now is persuade the cat to use the cat-flap!

Many kind regards
Jon

We would be pleased to recommend Chameleon Garden Rooms

We would be pleased to recommend Chameleon Garden Rooms to any other customer; they were helpful throughout the planning and were open about the cost with no hidden extras.

The construction was on the date agreed and the product was exactly as planned. The finish was very good and we are very pleased with our new Chameleon building.

A fully professional service from design to installation

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Following your recent letter please find below my comments regarding the ‘office pod’ just installed:

 

“A fully professional service from design to installation, with the final result, practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing.”

 

We are very happy with the product and cannot wait to start using it. Thank you to all of the team and the accounts department for our VAT invoice.

 

Regards,

Wayne Smith-Gillard

A big ‘THANK YOU’

Just wanted to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ for all the hard work, effort and personal touches you put into the installation of our new cabin.

Your service and professionalism was, and has been, outstanding. We are really pleased and truly grateful. You will be highly recommended and we will be in touch with you very soon to photograph the finished product.

Our kindest regards,

Margaret & Ernie Windeatt

A professional job

Hi Darren,

 

Just to say a big thank you for such a professional job.

 

The advice given during the planning answered all our questions, including your knowledge of sound-proofing (one of our requirements). The quality of the materials used is second to none, along with the EPDM roofing which has an amazing 50 year life span, this has exceeded our expectations. We were spoilt for the choice of colours available, this included carpet tiles, external and interior walls.

 

We were also surprised at how quickly the building went up, what's this, no tea breaks?

You provided us with a certified professional electrician who also met all of our requirements, working alongside your team without any problems. You and your team work hard and deserve the business in our opinion.

 

For anyone reading this, these bespoke buildings are quality garden rooms with a lot of attention to detail, they are in no way a simple garden shed, although the company makes those as well.

 

When it came to pricing we were surprised at the end figure, it was a lot less than we thought we might have to pay and certainly less than friends of ours had paid elsewhere.

 

We did look around (as is our habit) before settling with Chameleon Garden Rooms, we would now use no other company.

 

Martin & Gill.

Thanks so much

Hi Darren,

Thanks so much for making me a really fantastic garden gym room.  It really is first class and even better than I could have wished for. You and the team where absolutely fantastic and it is 100% perfect.

If you ever want me to give any references or recommendations then please just ask.

I'll also send you over some photos when I have everything in place.

Very best wishes and thanks again for the fantastic job.

Best Regards

Nigel

Very impressed from start to finish

Hi Darren

We are very pleased with our new room and would be happy to recommend you...

We have been very impressed from start to finish with our new room right through from the planning stage to installation. Darren and his team have done a superb job. No hidden surprises and work completed very quickly and professionally. We would highly recommend

Thanks once again

Kind regards

Fab studio

Hi Darren

Having just finished our fab studio building at the end of our garden I just want to thank Darren and his team for all the great help and support in finding and personalising the perfect room for us. We came to look at the show model which was being sold which looked great but not quite right for us, but with Darren's help managed to add extra windows both sides to give us the perfect room for an artist studio one end and for a home office also. It is a perfect building for the family now and I don't know how we ever managed without it and it has transformed the garden!

Julia Tinkler

We are thrilled

To Darren and team

We are thrilled to bits with our "His 'n' hers" garden rooms. You worked so hard on what must have been the three hottest days of the year.  The result is just what we wanted and is a tribute to total professionalism, great organisation and teamwork.  We're glad we chose you and would recommend you to anyone.  Even our neighbours have passed comments on your hard work and some of them have been in to have a look at the finished result.  The comments were very complimentary!  We'd also like to say thank you to John who showed us around when we first visited your Laker Road unit.  He was able to answer all our questions - and we had a few - without any pushy sales talk.  In our opinion, our Chameleon garden rooms are an excellent quality product, custom made to our exact requirements and we know we will enjoy them for many years to come.

 

Our thanks to you all.

Best wishes

Carol & Mike Rawlings

A big thank you

Hi Darren and the Boys

A big thank you for our garden room. The quality is exceptional and far reached our expectations.  Your honest approach and guidance throughout has helped us keep within our budget but also provided us with another fantastic spacious room!

We had planned to build an extension but this has proven to be a better option for our family because we have the extra room we need and have utilised the garden space that we didn't use, at a fraction of the cost.

Thank you for all your hard work and such a fabulous garden room.

We would definitely use you again and recommend your company to other people because of your teams, knowledge, reliability, skills and honesty.

We will keep in-touch and we also look forward to sitting in our warm insulated room overlooking our views in the winter.

The cabin is getting lots of use from us, friends and family and has improved our lifestyle more ways than we thought!

Take Care

Jan & Bryan

Very impressed

Hi Darren

The 'shed' is perfect, thank you.  I can't believe how warm it's keeping.  I will send you pictures when it’s all finished - unfortunately it’s still a 'work in progress' at the moment.

I must say I am very impressed with the service you provided all the way though, and would be happy to recommend you in the future.

Anji Smith

A great product

Having spent the best part of 5 months visiting various companies across Kent looking for a summer house/garden room, our criteria was not only just price but also quality. I’m pleased to say that Southern sheds ltd/Chameleon specialist garden rooms ticked both these boxes. From design to completion the team were professional, friendly, and flexible, delivering as promised on time. I would not hesitate in recommending this company for any of your outside garden building needs.

Also I would like to add is a big thanks to the team for a great product.

 

Regards

Glenn/Tracey Sharman

I absolutely love the studio!

Dear Darren,

I absolutely love the studio!

Here are some pictures. If you want to take some yourself, to get them exactly how you want them, you are welcome.

The garden room is looking fantastic

Thank you for working hard on my project. The garden room is looking fantastic and there are marvellous comments about it already. The room is quite warm and cozy and it's serving the purpose for which it was built.

Say a big thank you to your team for me, tell them I'm impressed by the way they worked hard, always turning up very early and keeping to schedule.

The room went up ever so quickly and was left neat and spotless after you finished.

Elizabeth Ajayi

Brilliant

Dear Darren, thank you so much for our beautiful home, we are over the moon with it, in one word “Brilliant”

Yours Eldie & Muriel Gosling

Looks just great

Well it was finished last weekend and it looks just great in fact we are so pleased with the outcome it fits into surrounding area so well that you would think it had been there forever. Your workmanship and the help that you gave in the whole project made everything work like clockwork. Once again many thanks,

Charlie Foreman

Delighted with it

Am now using the Garden room and am delighted with it. It is exactly what I wanted .I cannot thank you enough for all your helpful advice and endless patience while I changed my requirements /mind. I have just counted the emails -more than 12 in all plus your visits as well. Your pleasant team worked so hard on day one in the most appalling rain to get the room erected -if you had all downed tools and gone home I wouldn't have blamed you. You delivered on the date you said and completed on time also I will certainly be happy for you to send potential purchasers here to see my 'wee house' I wish you and your team every success for the future Many thanks for a brilliant product

Sandra Wheeler

So pleased

Dear Darren

We were so pleased with the cabin you erected in September. It is used as a music room and the insulation for sound is excellent. During this cold spell we only need a heater on for a short time as the cabin is so well insulated.

Your erection team including yourself and the electrician were very professional, efficient and cheery.

Hope you are well

Regards

Brian & Chris Cheetham

Will continue to highly recommend you

Hello Darren

When I rang after finally organising my email account, you were on leave,

I hope you have had a good holiday. Thank you so much for putting together such an extensive quote. Unfortunately after talking to you and Gravesham Borough Council

I feel that the position I have to put the summerhouse in, doesn't suit the proportions of the garden.

I was very impressed with you and your company, so will continue to highly recommend you to clients, friends and family.

Yours sincerely

Cathy Charlton

A big thank you to you all

Nothing was a problem and nothing was left to chance so thanks again

Absolutely Thrilled

Hi Darren

"I am ABSOLUTELY THRILLED with my new garden studio. I am so pleased with the finish and attention to detail on the interior. It has surpassed my expectations. The team were amazing whilst it was being put up. Extremely efficient and organised. All along I felt that I was dealing with true professionals, so often not the case these days but I certainly had no worries on that score. I was able to let them get on with it knowing that it was in safe hands.

I can't wait to really get in and start all of my Art and Textiles projects and show it off to all my friends!

Thank you so much Darren".

Margo

Sewing Studio

Hi Darren,

We would like to say a huge thank you for the lovely Chameleon building that you built for us.

We loved it so much, it seemed a shame to turn it into a tool/ workroom – so it became my “Sewing Studio”!!

We spent the Easter week painting and decorating it- we even have feature wallpaper and Roman blinds!

If you are in the area and fancy dropping by one day, please do…

Thank you once again,

The Office Pod

The Office Pod is not the cheapest building of it’s’ type on the market, however if you take into consideration the price includes full insulation, dry lining and installation on site, I feel that it offers good value for money. It has the feel of a room within a house

Best Regards,

Steve

Hi Darren,

With apologies for the delay in getting back to you, having had a rethink about our plans for our new property, we have decided, with regret, not to go ahead with the garden room. It was a great idea and we liked the versatility it offered, but after further consideration unfortunately we have decided that it is not the best option for our purposes.

I'm sorry not to be able to take this further after all the advice you gave us - we were very impressed with the service we got right from the start and will definitely bear you in mind if we want to go down the garden room route in the future.

Many thanks again for your time and help and we will certainly recommend you to anyone who may be considering something similar.

Regards,

Kara
