I am supporting the Woodland Trust by dedicating trees in Sussex and Kent woodlands.

I will issue a certificate for a tree dedication to each customer for every order placed, and have donated more than 10 trees so far.

I build timber frame structures; Garden Rooms, Log Stores, Workshops and Studios etc, out of the most beautiful, locally sourced, native and naturally durable woods. Wood is the ultimate renewable building material and timbers like:

oak chestnut cedar larch douglas fir

are lovely to work and ideal for cladding and structural framework.

All the wood I use is sourced from local timber yards who supply the best native British timbers from forests and estates throughout Sussex. Naturally durable wood can last for decades without the need of chemical treatment, especially in a well designed and constructed building.

I offer a unique approach to working that can empower you to seeing your project become a reality, see “Flexible Working and Pricing” under My Approach.

Don’t move house build in your garden, if you want a truly sustainable Garden Room, Studio or Office, then I’m your man. I can make you a long lasting, fully functional and recyclable building with the best materials and natural insulation. Add on a green roof and a timber decking and you could move in! How about a Sauna, perfect built out of Cedar.

Need a proper Log Store to keep your locally sourced logs dry, ready to burn in your wood burning stove, then contact me, as I’ve recently built some small barns for storing wood! No treated wood is used, careful timber selection and good design mean I can make you an ideal long lasting store for seasoning logs.

How about a Workshop, Shed or Tool Store, built to last and completely sustainable.

I also make a range of appropriate Natural Products that can complement any garden; benches, composts, beehives, bird boxes and chicken houses.

Testimonials

“We are absolutely delighted with the completed decking, the porch too.  We have been so impressed by your attention to detail and quality of workmanship. Thank you all for your efforts and we have no hesitation in recommending you to others, do let us know if anyone requires a testimonial.  It has been a real pleasure to watch progress from day one to the finished result.” Chris and Martin W. Crowborough.

“I have few DIY skills, and the thought of building a substantial log store, was not my idea of a fun week, however with the wonderful guidance and skills of Rob, I thoroughly enjoyed helping to construct what I can only describe as the best log store I have seen. Not only that, but his enthusiasm for the wood he uses is infectious, and you can tell he really cares about its source. I have no hesitation in recommending him, he is tidy, courteous, punctual, and a pleasure to work with.” John Chandler, Forest Row.
