We had a slightly unusual job of fitting a table tennis table over an oak refectory table. Both needed some modifications that required care. Paul did both neatly, efficiently and promptly. We appreciated his friendly and expert approach and would look to him for carpentry jobs in the future. Highly recommended!

Part of the job involved some intricate carpentry which Paul planned and executed to a high standard. The overall result is impressive and was achieved well within the anticipated time period.

"Thank you very much for doing such a superb job on our wardrobe; it really is perfect. If there is anywhere I can sing your praises and recommend you to others, please let me know." Mr. P, January 2017

"Did an excellent job very cheerfully, a real craftsman and a quick worker too. I am exteremely pleased with the end result and would recommend him to anybody. I would certainly use Paul again."
"Paul was absolutely superb. It was nice first of all to find someone prepared to undertake small tasks although these were complex and required a high level of skill. Paul was efficient and courteous throughout, even telephoning when he was going to be a few minutes late. He gave a clear estimate and the price was very reasonable. He was extremely thoughtful in the house and completely reliable. Above all the work was completed to a very high standard. We could not have done better and regard Paul as an outstanding find."

"Mine was a small job but Paul responded quickly and was able to come out the next morning. He's a smart guy who was able to diagnose and fix my door quickly and without making any mess. As a result, I had him do a couple of other small jobs while he was here. The price was reasonable and I would hire him again without question."

Paul was brilliant. He came to fit a new lock on my front door. Simple you might think? However, my front door was a total mess. Paul was so patient he replaced part of the doorframe (which wasn't in the brief and he didn't charge me for) so that the lock would fit flush. I would highly recommend Paul. The work was to a high standard and he was a tidy worker and cleaned up well. All in all a big gold star! Feb 2016
"Paul Otter did a very good job of fitting our skirting board. He arrived on time and we are very pleased with the job."

"Paul was very personable, and quick to respond both to my advert and in calling me. He completed the skirting work to a great standard and was clearly well experienced in his trade. I would happily use again and recommend to others."
"We first hired Paul to install bookshelves, and then more shelves in our kitchen. His work was excellent and it made no difference whether we provided the materials or not. He listened, made suggestions where appropriate, worked efficiently - and we wished we had found him earlier. I also asked him to build a large pergola in the garden to my design, and was so pleased with the result, I later commissioned him to build a second smaller one. I would not hesitate to recommend him."
"Absolutely excellent. Good price, came very quickly and delighted with work. Took on garage doors as well and did everything in a morning.
Highly recommended"

"Excellent service from Paul. Quick response and very reasonable price. Throughly reccommend.I will definitely use him again.
Many thanks Paul"

"I used Paul to undertake some adjustment on some carver chairs that required specialist attention.  I was delighted with his work which was exactly what I wanted.  Following this I asked Paul to design and build a wardrobe in a spare room and a desk and bookshelves in my office.  His design and attention to detail were second to none and he was incredibly helpful with suggestions and ideas that improved the overall finished product.  He is friendly and efficient and even decorated the wardrobe in advance of fitting.  I am going to commission him to do more work in the house and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone."

Paul responded to the ad quickly, came to spec out the job when he said he would and from start to finish was quick, clean, professional and I am very happy with the price and the results. Would definitely use Paul and Otter Interiors again.
