What we do

Carpentry and joinery are different but related specialisms. We provide both services to individuals and businesses, making, fitting and restoring properties and fittings. The list of our services on this page is not exhaustive as most of our work is done to individual specifications. We have a particular interest in ecological projects and building construction and you can see examples of our past projects here.

How we work

Having discussed the customer’s requirements, we produce a quote or estimate for the work. We either work from existing plans or produce sketches for a client. Our joinery is usually done in our workshop. This can be provided to customers on a ‘supply only’ basis. Alternatively our carpenters can fit the piece on site and liaise with architects and planning officers as needed.

We are often able to suggest and co-ordinate qualified, local crafts people to do work like architectural drawing, structural engineering, electrical wiring, plumbing, ground works or roof tiling. Ethical business is important to us.

Examples of work


  • Fitted kitchen and managed plumbing and plastering.
  • Moved door and constructed new internal wall and window in Cherry Orchard.
  • Leveled flooring with wooden frame and oak boards in Shrewsbury house.


More photos can be seen in our gallery and recent projects page. You can read more about Oliver Gibbs' training and qualifications here. Whether you want a hand-made item for your property or something fitted or restored in Shropshire, do get in touch to discuss your project.
