Jon loves a 1930’s and 1950’s, he also likes Laing and Cornish properties as he lives in one. Jon is happy to work with older buildings so will look at the older housing stock and the occasional listed building. He tends to shy away from flats as he cannot cope with not seeing the whole picture, unless he is to inspect every flat. He doesn’t like surveying new builds as he finds poor workmanship frustrating and the architectural regression and not learning lessons from the past futile.
Jon is always building something, yurts extensions, sheds at the moment its treble garages. He also enjoys making informative surveying related you tube videos.
He is very much the family man and loves spending as much time with his twins as possible or being out on the water or a beach.
You may want to note that he is ranked number 1 in the UK by free index at the moment.
