Project Description


Wood is a beautiful material to work with, I love it!

Its versatility is amazing. It can be used for simple things or carved and built into an elaborate piece of furniture.

Carpentry is my preferred type of work, I enjoy it more than anything else. It allows me to be very creative. I have used my carpentry skills for simple things like shelving through to pitching roofs and even hand carving a spiral handrail in my own Georgian home.

These days lots of my work involves creating custom built-in furniture, this now tends to be made from man made sheet material, to keep costs down. This ranges from the humble MDF, which is now available faced with various veneered wood such as oak and walnut, to good quality birch faced ply. The ply also is available with a white melamine face, which looks really attractive when the grain on the side is oiled. It really can look beautiful.

MDF when finished professionally can look amazing. I have invested in a spraying system to achieve an amazing finish. What a difference this makes!

This could be an option for your project.

Kim has created the bedroom of my dreams.

From the start of the job, she pointed out areas that would need to be put right. She kept me updated daily with plans of her work and the materials that she would need. She also let me know how much things would cost before she spent the money. She would also point out alternative options.

As a single female, working full time, it was a pleasure to come home each day and see what Kim had done and to find my home cleaner then I had left it!!!!

Her hard work and honestly all the way through the job, is something very rare. I have more work that needs doing in my home and Kim is the only person that I want to do it.

If you love your home as much as I do, Kim is the one builder that will truly care for it too. On that note ring/text or email her. She worth every penny.

Thank you Kim.

I cannot express how pleased I am that I chose Kim to undertake the renovation works to my 16th century farmhouse.

I was living in the property whilst the extensive works were carried out and I am extremely grateful for the kind, thoughtful, professional and extremely high attention to detail that I received from Kim.

I can give her my highest recommendation.

Kim helped us with our garage annex, which included fitting an electric garage door; laying an engineered wooden floor; fitting all our skirtings and architraves; and building and plastering a stud wall required by building control. She was also able to help with a huge list of snagging issues in both the garage annex and our main house, that we hadn’t been able to finish and which would usually have required a variety of different trades to complete.

Kim has been invaluable to our project with her ‘can do’ attitude. She arrives on time everyday; always comes when she says she will; works incredibly hard; has a great eye for detail; offers solutions to problems; and always does what is asked of her. We cannot recommend her highly enough!
