About Us

CARPENTRY BY DESIGN I enjoy building . I love Backyard structures : Sheds, Decks , Treehouses, Playhouses etc I endeavor to make something fresh and different. . I specialize in custom carpentry and woodworking products, designed and made to specific needs.. I like making things and being challenged in the process.. On my PROJECTS page you see a range of craft , design and imagination. I especially enjoy making custom garden studios, children's play houses and tree houses. I served my apprenticeship In Newcastle , England as a carpenter / joiner. I started off working for a 100 year old family firm . I served most of my apprenticeship with Jimmy Spence . Jimmy was with the firm a long time. He was very patient and had plenty knowledge to pass on.
