How We Work

1. Consultation


When you get in contact with us, the first thing we will do is book in a time to visit you.

There is no replacement for face-to-face communication and the best place to discuss your ideas is in your home.

It can be helpful to email us with any inspirational images you have found or share them with us on social media. This is not essential, but it can help us do some preparation for the meeting and bring appropriate samples and images with us.

During our initial visit, we will make notes, do some sketches and take some rough measurements of the space to allow us to go away and prepare a detailed proposal and price for your project.

2. Design


We pride ourselves on providing detailed and easy-to-understand proposals with 3D drawings and details of materials and finishes clearly laid out.

We will happily adjust and revise our designs and provide updated prices if required.

If you choose to go ahead then we would arrange a second meeting to iron out the final details, present your chosen finishes and fittings and carry out a detailed survey of the room.

We may then need to update our drawings and we will ask you to sign them off before we start work. Our designs are so clever they have even been featured in a range of home magazines.

3. Making


Once we have received your signed off drawings then we will start ordering materials, fittings and finishes ready to start creating your project in the workshop.

We source all our materials as locally as possible and ensure that all our timber products are FSC certified.

We use Little Greene Company paint because of its durable finish, excellent colour choice and their commitment to the environment.

Once the project reaches this stage it is very difficult to make any changes without incurring extra cost and delays.

We ask that you communicate with us regularly and let us know about anything which might impact the project, such as delays from other tradesmen.

4. Installation


Once your project is ready it will be time to install it in your home. David will need space to work and may ask that the room be cleared of any other furniture before he can start.

We can of course assist you with this if you let us know in advance. David does his upmost to minimise dust and disruption and always puts down protective coverings for flooring and other surfaces where necessary.

During the planning and design process, we will give you an estimate of the installation time required. This could be anything from a few days for a media unit or several weeks for a bespoke kitchen or large walk-in wardrobe for example.

If we need to work around other trades, we can liaise directly with them to ensure the project progresses as planned. 

Once the installation is complete, we will tidy up and return the space to how we found it. We will ensure you are completely satisfied with it and undertake any snagging promptly and to a high standard.
