Following an apprenticeship in carpentry and working for 14 years around Britain and Europe, I set up Oak Homes Joinery Ltd. Our first job was restoring parts of the entrance hall to Portmeirion in North Wales. The unique Italian style village built around architectural salvage by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925-1975, which has been featured as the backdrop to the cult 60s series ‘The Prisoner’.

Further restoration projects around North Wales took us slowly to the borders of Cheshire where the occurrence of heavy timber frame buildings is far greater. During this period of time we were also carrying out work for the prestigious joinery company ‘Stuart Interiors‘ helping construct and fit carved oak panelling/ stairs and entire rooms into various castles and listed buildings around the world. Including the Elizabethan manor at Parnham House which in 2018, mysteriously, burnt to the ground. 

We then carried out some work for the well known designer 'Johnny Grey' where we installed his unusual and beautiful 'unfitted' kitchens. 

Our Story

Our first new heavy timber frame building was designed and constructed in Cheshire in 1999.

We shared a workshop for a number of years in Chideock, Dorset. Due to space, we were mainly confined to joinery and on site timber frame repairs. However,

after a few years building up the business in the local area, we began to take on our first apprentices and relocated to an empty barn in Branscombe, East Devon which had the space and potential to construct the larger buildings we were aiming for.

From then until now the workshop has grown, and we have constructed many beautiful timber frame buildings, extensions and homes, barns, summerhouses, garden studios and many more which can be seen throughout this site.
