Clocks all Ticking

Clocks all working fine now – new hands, new varnish – and ready to be delivered.  Tested them by hanging them on my workshop wall.


Tick Tock Twice

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.

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.


Wheelchair Access

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 doorwheelchair access.  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.


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 in Silverstone.
