"Before the purchase of our house in Burgundy, we definitely wanted a technical evaluation of the property. For this purpose we contacted Eric van Keulen from Cabinet Van Keulen. He has acted as an independent party with assessment of the house and has given an indication of expected maintenance.
Due to his approach the house has not given us any negative surprises. After the purchase, we embarked on a major renovation with Eric van Keulen as maître d’œuvre. Since we remained in the Netherlands during the renovation, confidence, anticipation of our taste and technical desires was a must.
With his knowledge of local architecture, technical implementation of projects and his network of local craftsmen and suppliers, the renovation has been effective and to our satisfaction."
"For our complex renovation-project, Eric van Keulen appeared to be the right project-manager. Beside coördinating a large number of building diciplines he was very creative in what we wanted concerning the renovation.
He always was prepared to give a hand without asking. Also he had no problem translating what we had in mind with the renovation to the workers concerned. Despite we were often not able to be in our house in France, there was no delay and the result was beautiful in the end."
"Six years ago we bought our house in southern Burgundy. The house was sound and the rooms well proportioned but it felt messy. We asked Eric van Keulen to make the house more stylish and to convert the attic into an artist's studio.
He took our wishes on board and pointed out the possibilities and limitations. He offered us a lot of very good practical advice, being well informed on building issues, especially concerning the local style of houses and period features. We soon knew him as someone who can make your plans work. He has access to a network of local artisans and protects your budget by preventing unnecessary expense.
Time and time again we were pleased by his surprising ideas and solutions. His calm and sympathetic approach led to an enjoyable experience, full of adventure. His taste is very refined; he knows how to use colour, fine materials and decorative elements.
We felt we could rely on Eric and our meetings were pleasant and practical. Thanks to him we enjoy our very private and quiet French house."
