We were contacted by this client through the FMB,who had just purchased his dream home,an 1800's detatdhed stone house with large gardens and stone out buildings in a small quaint village near Market Harborough.Our client wanted his home upgrading, with oak flooring, new skirting boards he also wanted a bespoke bookcase making with a secret door through to his office, enabeling his office to be completely disguised by his new bookcase.On starting our new project we removed all the old carpets to find that the floor joists had rotted and deteriated,we also found woodworm and damp in the walls. We treated the woodworm, replaced the floor joists and floorboards we also fixed the damp problem by treating the walls.We made the new bookcase with secret doorway in our own workshop and installed it in position in the room, we installed solid oak flooring, new skirting boards and sockets, we also decorated the room to our clients design.Our client Mr W was very pleased with the outcome of the project and asked us to come back later in the year to create a new extension with ensuite, and refurbish his bathroom.

We were asked by our client if we could repair a jacobean oak window , it was in poor condition with a rotted through cill , the leaded lights had been repaired and replaced over the years and were also in need of total restoration.The window was original ( circa 1600's). We stripped the window of the paint taking it back to the original oak timber, cut away the old cill and machined a new piece of cill to match existing , we spliced new pieces of oak in the stiles , replaced the leaded lights with hand made glass to match the original window and fitted the window into the stonework .The work was compleated in our own joiners workshop , by our own timed served craftsmen
