You may think this woodshed looks unfinished and you’d be right. Some customers will want to finish the work themselves to save costs or for the creative pleasure of their own project. In this case, we delivered the materials and set up the uprights and the roofing. We will always respect customer’s wishes.
So here is the final version. We didn’t buy any new cupboard carcasses or frontals. Mervyn designed the whole thing himself re-siting the original cupboards to producing an uncluttered room with efficient use of the space. The original water supply pipes were very complicated: he moved the incoming supply which allowed him to relocate the sink, washing machine and dish washer to a different side of the room. This then left space to construct a breakfast bar and shelving with oak from www.linnellbros.co.uk in Silverstone. David Green in Syresham re-wired the room for us. We sourced a new sink and worktops (pitch pine) from Towcester builders’ merchant www.tbsdirect.co.uk
Clocks all working fine now – new hands, new varnish – and ready to be delivered. Tested them by hanging them on my workshop wall.
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.
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.
Well, you may ask “why the emergency?”. The answer is that the customer had arranged for some reconfiguring in his house to begin next Monday, which meant moving out the contents of his woodstore by this weekend. So on Wednesday, we shifted about some of our other work, discussed with the customer what was needed, and built this woodshed against a barn wall.
