  2. Cost up Job Quotation - transparent and fair detailed description of work involved. Including materials, labour & contingencies.
  3. Project Schedule - ensuring work is carried out on time, in budget and to the highest standards.  Client service is extremely important to us so we involve our clients and ensure all aspects are understood and there are no surprises.
I was occupying the property throughout the 5 week contract, the contracting team were polite, courteous and tidy which made things run smoothly. Work was completed to a consistently high standard while working closely to the project schedule.

Crafting your dream home


The gorgeous woodwork of full timber frame homes and decorative elements reflect the true feeling of living more closely to nature.  We build custom green oak timber frames for new builds, renovations, extensions & garden buildings.  Oak frames are proven to last and ensure you create an ecologically sustainable structure.

The finishing touches, designed specifically for you


For a truly personalised home we build bespoke furniture designed and crafted to your needs.  Our portfolio includes dining tables, coffee tables, wine racks, built in cabinets and more.  Whether it be a refined finish, rustic farmhouse piece or restoration project we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and crafting pieces to your individual taste. 

Furniture does not have to be free standing and more commonly it is incorporated into the building, maximising space and integrating seamlessly into a room. We take all projects from the design stage through to completion.  We provide competitive quotation, can offer ideas and are always open to working with clients to create exactly what they have in mind.


We work with local sawmills who supply native woods alongside exotic hardwoods. Starting with roughly sawn timber or even reclaimed wood the opportunities are endless.  Perhaps you even have timber of your own that you have a vision for.

We got exactly what we wanted and the finished piece is not only beautiful but practical.
