The art of creating
any new home is in its siting and orientation, composition and detailing.
Science is required to make it comfortable, affordable, durable and
safe. We seek to combine these, naturally, using wood.
For sixty years, that has been our firm's business. We select plantation-grown
timber and carry out most of the fabrication of the building before
going on site. Preservative is pressure applied to enhance the natural
durability of the Douglas fir we use.
Design and co-ordination are the hallmarks of our service. A good drawing
is one thing, but knowing how to make it work well can be another. We
enjoy new challenges, and innovative ideas.
Building is all about teamwork.
The customer, the designer and the contractors all need to work together.
This ought to be a satisfying, creative experience for everyone involved.
Safety first, is our watchword for construction operations.
We are experienced house builders, and know most of the pitfalls to
look out for!
Anything in wood! is our motto. Whether you are looking for a home for
a weekend or a lifetime, we seek to offer attractive, well-designed
and eco-friendly solutions in timber that fulfill your desires and suit
With its unique grain and colouring, Douglas fir gives a special atmosphere
to any home. Solid timber is not just good thermal insulation, it also
filters and negatively-ionises the air, and helps stabilise internal
humidity fluctuations. Wooden surfaces tend to benefit acoustics, and
suitably constructed solid timber walls give good fire resistance. Our
sensitively designed homes provide a relaxing haven, combined with a
robust, sustainable and durable property asset.
