Two family room extensions for 2 adjoining new-build terraced houses -Brooklands, Milton Keynes
“Having bought a new built three bed terraced house last Dec,myself and my cousin next door realised we could really do with a bit of an extra dining space and planned to build an extension.As first time buyer, new to MK area and lack of knowledge on planning permissions and what have you,we didn’t know where to start really.We found Lumina on mybuilder and given their track record and the positive reviews approached Peter for a quick chat and a potential quote.
Peter assessed the project requirements and offered us suggestions on how to go about the structure.He quoted fixed price with a target delivery date six weeks away.Peter and his team managed to complete all work a week earlier than previously agreed and within agreed budget and helped us move in time.
Having heard horrid stories from friends about how things have gone wrong, we sometimes feel we probably embarked on a very aggressive and optimistic journey,which meant ripping a apart of the brand new house, terrible weather, lack of knowledge on the regulatory requirements, limited access to the site, a tight move in date, we were certainly treading on a very fine line here,and thing’s could’ve gone terribly wrong without a committed builder.
We are pleased to provide a very positive feedback to Peter & Carla for their professionalism, commitment and all the warm reassurance and support in getting an extension built against all odds. We wish Peter all the best and be more than happy to recommend to friends.”

Extension to for new spacious family kitchen – Olney
“As someone who has not been through the process of building an extension before, I have to admit I was nervous. The idea of something going wrong, cowboys or budgets over running was a real fear for me. I am therefore so THANKFUL that we chose to use Lumina Building. Peter was so reassuring from day one, and did everything in his power to make the build go as smoothly as possible. He brought in decent qualified people to help out (Sparky, Chippy and Plumber), and was just fantastic.
Carla his partner was also really communicative and from a billing perspective really on the ball. At no point was I hounded, asked for money early etc.
At one point it became clear that I had not considered the hand over from builder to kitchen fitter, and Peter took it all in his stride. He sought quotes, and encouraged me to get others. When I choose to do any more building work, Peter and his team will be the people I come to first. Hands down.
Thank you Peter.”

Change lean-to/conservatory into extension for new kitchen – Ampthill, Bedfordshire
“Peter and his team have restored our faith in builders. They are a great bunch of guys and really do work very hard. Peter was patient when we changed our mind with things and has helped us achieve a great looking kitchen. He organised a variety of tradesmen to take on different aspects like the plumbing; tiling, electrics and carpentry and we can honestly say all of them are skilled and have provided excellent quality of work. We had a push to get things finished in time for Christmas and wow, did they push and ensure we had a fully functional kitchen to cook the dinner in. We’re just in the process of getting more jobs done and again, can’t fault them. Excellent team!”

“I would thoroughly recommend Lumina Building. Peter and Brian did an excellent job on the ceiling I wanted plastering. They did a careful and thorough job and cleared up after the work. Professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly too! – I feel lucky to have found such a great plasterer and would definitely employ them again in future should I have any further plastering jobs.”

Skimming total of 4 walls in 2 rooms, repair 2 ceilings
“I have nothing but praise for Peter. His quote for the work was competitive, concise and included all necessary detail. He was very easy to talk to about aspects of the job both before and during the work.
He was very punctual and hardworking and completed the job well inside the estimated time. Plastering, by its nature, can be a messy job, however Peter made far less mess than I was expecting but neverthless covered-up well beforehand and swept-up afterwards.
He is extremely professional and experienced and did a superb job – my walls and ceilings are now straight, flat, and smooth as glass, ready for paint.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him and would not even dream of going elsewhere for any future plastering work.”
chrisjh – 7th Nov, 2012
“Nothing but a glowing report here. Peter was more reasonably priced than others I’d contacted, and did the job in a much quicker time as well. I was told the job would take one and a half days by others, but Peter finished it within 5 or 6 hours. Work was completed to a very high standard with a lot of skill and artistry. Spotless clean-up afterwards. Peter is also one of the nicest people you’re likely to meet! Will certainly be using in the future if the need arises.”
dalejames – 7th Nov, 2012
Replace kitchen ceiling
“Peter did a great job, quickly and to high standard at a competitive price. His approach was consultative and I was happy to take his advice when it came to lighting and the extent of the repair work we needed. Also a very friendly guy which made dealing with him a pleasure. I will call him again if we need further work done in the future.”
