We believe, that regardless of budget, everyone should be able to access true craftmanship and be able to maintain the character of their homes.
We are passionate about keeping the character and charm of historical homes alive. The use of real wood, instead of imitation products is a more natural and sustainable option for use in your house, as well as creating a more healthy living environment. We believe in the ethos that the greenest house is one already built and that sympathetic restoration is the most environmentally forward way of maintaining your home.
We also pride ourselves in injecting character into modern homes and creating focal points, enhancing the homes atmosphere.
