Having finished my apprenticeship with a well-known family firm in Hereford, I started at a restoration company in South Wales where I had the great pleasure of working on some of the finest buildings in Britain including Windsor Castle, Hereford Cathedral, Carreg Cennen castle. In 1997 I began employment with a large firm in Hereford, working on notable buildings such as Kenilworth Castle, Lower Brockhampton, Gate House, Whitley Court, Boat House etc. In 2001 I went into a partnership in restoration and timber framing where we had many satisfied customers. In 2005, I made the decision to go it alone and haven’t looked back. Now, I have a small number of skilled craftsmen assisting me to make some of the highest quality frames that you will have the pleasure to see. I personally pride myself on quality and honesty and will deliver you a dream building. My love of timber and traditional skills that we use, allows you have just what you want in any style, all with a common-sense approach.

These can be provided to you in a kit form for self-build or we have a team of erectors who could do it for you, the choice is yours.
We also make a wide range of oak products using some of our recycled waste. These include tables, benches, cribs, pegs, garden furniture, raised bed kits, fencing, large bird tables and bird boxes and we are always looking to make different and unique timber one off products.
Restoration is something you must have your heart in. Working with a heritage Conservation Architect to retain as much of the old timber as possible and bring the building back to life. Repairs are made with scarf joints, splice joints, bridle joints, scissor joints, half laps, face patches and flitch plates.
