Cutting out the sales pitch and high end packaging we get straight to the heart of the matter, designing, making and installing the things that make a space beautiful.


“If you are looking for a highly skilled, flexible and friendly professional then you will be delighted to have found this hidden Gem. When we moved into our house we found Jim’s details on a plaque from the previous owner’s kitchen (which he had built) and were really impressed with the quality of the work. We moved the kitchen from the basement to the ground floor and asked Jim to help design and build it.

What you don’t get with Jim is flashy showrooms, slick salespeople and inflexible timelines. What you do get is the quality of “Plain English” with the price that a sole trader can offer – unbeatable. Jim has since come back to build us shelving, wardrobes and we’ll use him for many other carpentry jobs in the future.”

“Jim has carried out extensive work in our Victorian house, re-furbishing a living room, fitting out a study/office, building a fitted bedroom (including the bed), re-fitting a bathroom and shower room, restoring and enhancing original features and renovating a landing and stairwell.   He has risen to the challenge of building bespoke storage solutions and has always delivered an excellent result with attention to detail.”

“I would highly recommend Jim for any job and he enjoys new challenges.  His quality and craftsmanship is to the highest standard and he is professional and always a pleasure to work with. ”

“Jim is extremely professional. He was understanding of what I wanted to achieve and undertook the work in a short amount of time. I am pleased to say that he was always willing to go beyond what he was obliged to do and delivered a courteous, friendly and efficient service. I cannot recommend Jim highly enough, its nice to be able to deal with a tradesman who is still willing to go the extra mile to provide a good service. I will definitely use Jim again in the future. ”
