Herringbone Style Fireplace
A stone fireplace was removed from this 18th century property and a new fireplace and alcove were created using oak beams and handmade brick slips laid in a herringbone style. A slate hearth was incorporated ready for a wood pellet stove to be installed.
A radius patio was laid in the centre of the client’s rear garden, using Indian sandstone flags and square setts around the perimeter.
A raised composite decking area was created around a hot tub. The decking also incorporated composite balustrade.
Boarding Out a Loft
A large loft was boarded out using chipboard tongue and groove floorboards. The boards were placed on, and secured to, loft legs to prevent the Rockwell insulation from being compressed. Timber supports were added down either side of the boarded area to prevent the ceiling joists from sagging.
A new limestone wall with Indian sandstone copings was built at Crooklands Hotel to extend the front beer garden.
A raised shed base was built in order to prevent flooding during inclement weather.

A decking area was built above an existing patio in preparation for glass balustrades to be installed.
A client recently had new windows installed by a window company. I was asked by the client to do the banding to the window reveals to make them weathertight.
A new porch with a sandstone front, rendered/dashed sides and a gable end type pitched roof was constructed to match the existing building.
Sandstone Steps and Wall
Random sandstone was used to create steps to gain access to a higher garden level. The wall was also built using random sandstone to enclose a section of the large garden. It was finished using handmade half-round sandstone toppers.
A new veranda was built using clear roof panels to allow a more light and airy feel.
Stone Flagged Patio
A concrete flagged area was taken up and a new stone flagged patio was built.
Convex topped trellis panels were fixed to an existing dividing wall to create height and privacy.
A new porch was built to gain access to an existing utility room, to the side of the client's property.
Refurbished Stone Wall
A client's wall was in need of repair so, using existing materials, loose stones and top stones were re-bedded and the wall was given a complete facelift.
Decking and Steps
A raised decked area, incorporating steps, was designed and built to gain easier access to the lower section of garden and also to create a small seating area.
Steps & Path/Patio
New stone steps and a path/patio area was created using Indian stone flags.
New Airing Cupboard
Slatted shelves were built inside a large landing cupboard to create this airing cupboard style storage area.
Concrete Flagged Patio

Bespoke Log Store with Doors
This bespoke log store was built as a stand alone construction. Doors were included as an extra feature to store kindling. Log stores can be built in any design, size or location to suit your needs.
I took down and rebuilt this retaining garden wall (as it was leaning) using both existing stone and imported stone to match.
The client requested a tall rose arbour where, in time, climbing plants can be grown.
Creation of Window Opening
A new window opening was created using drafted quoin stones and pointed to match the existing wall.
Wall and Fence
The retaining wall was rebuilt using existing stone. A bespoke post and rail fence was then built to enclose the garden.
A New Door Opening Was Created

New entrance gates were fitted to the driveway along with five feet high, seven inch square treated timber posts.
Sandstone Garden Wall and Gate
A sandstone garden wall, finished with half round topping stones, was built and a garden gate installed.
Bespoke Log Store

The front of this brick built house was re-pointed to increase weather proofing and to give a more aesthetically pleasing look.
Existing stone flags were raked out and re-pointed to give the patio area a fresh look.
Converting Two Rooms Into One
A steel beam was used to support the upstairs floor, then a wall was removed to convert two small rooms into one large one. An internal door was blocked off and plastered to create extra wall space.
This bespoke stable door was built for a porch on a roundhouse, using larch timber boards.
'Hit and Miss' Design Garden Fence
A bespoke 'hit and miss' design garden fence was built on top of the client's existing wall.
Garage Side Door and Access Ramp
A side door was created in this garage and a ramp built for convenient access. A fence and handrail were added for safety.
Greenhouse Base and Sandstone Path

Bespoke Feather Edge Fence
This photograph shows how having a bespoke fence provides a much neater structure than using off-the-shelf fence panels.
