Calum Johnstone, George Heriot’s School, Edinburgh - Flying Carpet
When I first took on the prospect of staging ‘Aladdin’, my immediate thought was of how to create a magic carpet. The iconic scene for the titular character and Jasmine called for something special. Having seen Michael’s work firsthand, I knew he was the right man for the job. And, to put it bluntly, I was right.
Michael’s strength is getting to know exactly what you want and somehow cleverly coming up with a plan to create your vision. He shared his thoughts at every step of the design process and no detail was too small for Michael. He simply knew what needed done, and when. I was kept fully informed as to the progress of the project, complete with pictures and videos of the operation.
Not one to deliver a product and leave it, Michael made sure that the carpet fulfilled our requirements completely. Even after delivery, he spent a lot of time ensuring that we knew how to operate it safely, and checked to see if there were any tweaks needed. The care and attention to detail that Michael brings to all of his creations is second to none.
Suffice to say, the magic carpet was just that: magical. The feedback we received from our pupils’ parents was astounding. All were impressed by the carpet design, as they couldn’t work it out! It reinforced what I already knew; that when you have Michael Osborne onboard, the sky’s the limit.

Derek & Janet Ross, Dumfries - Kitchen
I got Michael to revamp my kitchen which was old and tired. He dismantled my existing units and spray painted the lot in a modern grey he also laid a new kardene floor and builtI me a new cupboard which exactly matches the existing kitchen.
His skills and workmanship are first class and I would not hesitate to use him again. Skilled craftsmen are hard to come by so thank you Michael

Michael designed and constructed built-in wardrobes in three of our bedrooms. We were delighted with the results, including his use of space, clean design and neat work.
Michael has an easy manner, communicates well over options and timescales and was very reliable.
