Log Stores

Testimonial; “We are delighted with our log store: it is built to last, looks great and is made from local, sustainably-sourced wood. Rob is an excellent craftsmen, has good design sense and was very tidy. He was transparent about the cost of materials and reasonably priced. We will definitely turn to him on future projects.” Rupert Widdicombe, Forest Row.
