By an amazing coincidence I have 2 large clocks to repair. The first is an historic Indian Railways replica clock – it needed some dismantling, sanding down and re-varnishing. The very same week another customer brought me a clock which had fallen off the wall and broken.

Not a hobbit’s house but it is in Northampton-Shire. I designed and built this pool house from scratch for a client: inside is the swimming pool electrics and equipment.
The garden was originally a flat rough lawn. Three weeks later there is a patio facing the sun and newly sown lawn edged with herbaceous cottage garden plants.
This is the start of a project to break up rough concrete and improve drainage in a narrow space between the house, garage and boundary fence. Watch this space as the work progresses.
The frame of this scrambling net had uprooted from the ground. We made a new endpiece, dug out the rotten pieces, re-bolted the net to the frame and it’s all ready for Spring playtime.
Our customer today had unexpectedly found himself using a wheelchair. Unfortunately he was virtually trapped indoors because of the huge step down from his front door. He came up with a solution and asked us to fit an extra-wide gate in the fence in his back garden, which gave him access to the path along the side of his house. We cut into a flower border and made a new sloping concrete approach from the patio to the new gate. We were happy to prioritise this job to help him get his freedom back.
