“ I have used Anthony Hicks three times now on projects and I have recommended them to several friends who have also used their services. There are many people professing to build this type of structure and the magazines are littered with such adverts. However none of them in my opinion match the design and finish that Anthony Hicks can provide. I definitely think they use more timber and bigger sizes in the construction. The last building was almost entirely constructed without any metal fittings on the frame as it would have been hundreds of years ago . I am now looking for a site for a new build and I will be speaking to Anthony Hicks in the future” Mr & Mrs Andrews
