Hobbit House in The Shires

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.


Concrete breaking

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. ​


Re-use and Recycle

This was a small job to repair a rotten fence brought down by a smothering of ivy. The client removed the ivy himself and wanted to re-use the existing gate. We’re always pleased to recycle and reuse.



Barn raising in Bucks

We’ve been travelling around a lot recently.  The last job was making a palace for guinea pigs in Kent.  This one is a slate-roofed barn in a garden in Buckinghamshire.  Designed in consultation with the client and built from scratch.  As usual assisted by Milo.  Wood was sourced from our experts at http://www.linnellbros.co.uk in Silverstone.




Play area

We don’t believe in endless blogging so we’ve been quiet for a while.  This week Mervyn has been landscape part of a school playground in anticipation of new reception children playing in the area.  Day 1 was hot and humid.  Day 2 it poured with rain. But Mervyn never gives in.  Here are some pics of the work and the finished scene.  Machinery hired from http://www.wtphire.com/
