I have been making things out of wood myself since I was about five years old and made a country kitchen for my mother when I was just twelve.
After that I was hooked! My interest grew over the following years, until one cold, wet day I arrived in Hungerford to start my business. I was nervous, but so excited to share my ideas for kitchen designs with prospective customers.
The passion and enthusiasm I felt then is still just as strong today and pervades throughout our whole team, from the skilled artisan craftsmen in our Oxfordshire workshop, to our friendly, knowledgeable designers across the country.
