My working life began hand-building oak framed structures within a derelict barn out in the Staffordshire countryside. Under the watchful eye of other experienced carpenters, I had soon progressed as a leading figure both on site during assembly and in workshop fabrication. My design ideas within a team helped evolve methods of joining, glazing and ease of assembly. It was some seventeen years later that my drive to improve had vastly outgrown my current working surroundings.
Oak And Home Traditional Building had always been a distant dream of mine until the day came to start putting down the foundations to build and nurture my own company. My goal was to create a company that combined my work ethics, desires and passion for crafting oak frame buildings into the leading oak specialists in the UK.
It was a sunny afternoon in the middle of September whilst working on an oak-framed house in Claverley where I concluded that I had to turn my dream into a reality. On this day, Oak and Home Traditional Buildings were born and a new chapter in my life had begun.
I began to fabricate oak-framed buildings out of a friend’s barn not too far from Bridgnorth and found the whole experience exhilarating. It is a real joy being able to take a step back from a completed structure, that you have built with your own hands, and appreciate its beauty.
Today Oak and Home Traditional Buildings have gained many lifelong friends as I, along with my working colleagues, have helped our clients turn their design ideas into the perfect oak-framed buildings. It has always been my passion and pride for the work that has put me in good stead throughout my life. These very principles are the foundations that have been acknowledged by my working colleagues and our clients.
Here at Oak & Home, we have two fundamental principles that we work and live by:
1. Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the works.
2. An Oak and Home Traditional Building is one that will be made with skilled and caring hands.
