Traditional builders, joiners and timber framers in Dorset

We are traditional builders with a refreshing attitude.

Green oak frames, custom designed buildings, traditional masonry, slate roofing, ground works and intricate joinery are just some of the skills we are accustomed to delivering on a daily basis.

We operate as a partnership of two, with a skilled team of trades people who are used to working alongside us. Everything we do comes with a level of thought, planning and attention to detail, unusual in today's building trade. We pride ourselves on surpassing our client's expectations...our reviews suggest that we succeed in doing so.

Our Work

15 Century Manor House Roof Restoration

The roof restoration of a 15th century manor house. Really rewarding work when you peel off sections to find, and then work with, pieces of wood that have been there for hundreds of years. There is a real sense of pride working with genuine English heritage.

Bespoke Oak Gates

One pair of specially commissioned garden gates designed for a beautiful property near Newbury. These were made completely from scratch, full mortise and tenon construction. Incredibly satisfying to see them in place.

Timber Clad Stables

Back in Holwell, new stables for a new client. Oak framed with western red cedar on blocks. A little more intricate than the last, including stores, a tack room, roof storage and a covered walkway. Client is making his own doors and we are back in next month to make and fit the windows.
