Here is a selection of other projects I have worked on. They give you an idea of the type of work I can do and may also give you ideas for a project you would like done. Click on an image to enlarge the photo.
A 4m square raised tree house platform, entirely built from Larch, around a lovely oak.
Larch frame, 100mm x 50mm timbers, Cedar Cladding and a tiled roof, approx. 7m x 3m.

Larch frame and Cedar feather edge cladding, corrugated steel roof, 2.4m x 3.0m workshop.
Cedar boards 32mm thick x 150mm wide, a sawn finish means they are much less slippery than normal boards.
Small Shed for storing Beehive equipment, supplied to Turners Hill Primary School.
Chicken House for up to six chickens, made from Larch and Cedar. Supplied to Turners Hill primary School.
A huge 6m x 6m deck, built using Larch for the frame and posts and finished with thick Cedar deck boards and balustrade.
“Wow what a job. We hired Rob to build us some decking and what a result, he is so professional and what he’s achieved is fantastic. Everyone that has seen it has commented on how great it is. We have no hesitation in recommending Rob and will use his services in the future.” Christine and Martin W. Crowborough
Reciprocal roof frame
A fantastic project, using massive Chestnut posts, and a self supporting reciprocal roof structure, this framework forms the basis of an outdoor cooking and entertaining space.
Built from Douglas Fir frame and Cedar cladding and roof. This was a joint project with the client and provides a massive 10 m3 of storage.
Logstore, approx. sizes 4.5 m long x 2 m high x 0.6 cm deep, constructed using Larch and a felt roof. Price guide £500 – £550.
New pergola made entirely from Sweet Chestnut, this was built around the old structure, before it was dismantled, to support the exisitng plants during construction, which are now blooming nicely!
School Cycle Shelter
This was an architect designed cycle shelter built in Michael Hall School, Sussex, where I was a Teacher for 17 years. I led a group of eight 15 year old work experience students over two separate three week sessions to complete this impressive structure. It can take over 50 bikes.
Timber Frame extension
Also a work experience project at Michael Hall School that I led. This timber frame extension, to a classroom space, was completed over three weeks, again by a small group of students.
Here’s a log store I built for a customer, a four bay store with approx 24m3 of space, made with a Douglas Fir frame and Larch cladding. Note the logs waiting to go in!
Testimonial: “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.
A photo of the Chicken House to show you some more detail. The main side panel removes to access the roost, and to the side is a small panel to get at the eggs. At either end of the run is a removable panel to give access for feeding of cleaning out. The ramp raises and lowers on a string without the need to open any panel.
