Work is really stacking up at the moment – so much so that we have decided to take on more staff to keep up.
Our latest apprentice is Bonnie the Welsh Collie who has recently joined the team. Bonnie freely admits that her CV is not the most comprehensive when it comes to traditional timber framing, but feels sure her tenaciousness and deep sense of loyalty will more than compensate. She lists “rounding up chickens” and “fetching sticks” as her key qualities, both of which I’m sure will be very useful.
Bonnie’s first week in the workshop has been taken up selecting curves for braces – a task at which she has excelled. She is hoping to undergo chainsaw training shortly.

If you're considering an oak framed building (or larch, or douglas fir), let's talk. We'll gladly put together an outline quote (completely free, with no strings attached). And we need very little information from you to do so.
Equally, we're always here, at the end of the phone, to talk through your ideas.
