The customer was hoping I could do something with their much loved and well used shed. The alternative to repair would have been replacement. A 20ft x8ft shed costs around £4000. Then there is the cost of installation to add. So after careful inspection of the floor and floor bearers , I decided that it could be salvaged.
A replacement frame with window was made and installed. It was then clad in shiplap and re- glazed. All timber used is tannalised and all the end grain treated with wood preservative. A belt and braces approach that results in a new lease of life for the shed and a gentler assault on the wallet!

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service.
I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner.
As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements.
The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly.
I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
