About Stephen

Stephen hails from an extended family of builders who all have Traditional as well as Modern building skills. From this, he has built up over 30 years of experience - ranging from Barn Conversions, New Builds, (Foundations right through to Roofing), to specialist Cob restoration.

Stephen and his small team of skilled and dedicated labourers work with a number of specialist local contractors to provide a complete service - from scaffolding through to Electrics, Plumbing, Specialist Joiners, Metal Fabricators and Structural Engineers. Whenever possible all our materials are sourced locally and sustainably.

All work complies with current building regulations and within historic conservation requirements. Much of our work involves listed buildings and we work closely with English Heritage when the buildings listing requires it - this is where our traditional skills and expertise really become invaluable to the project.

Work includes, but not limited to:

  • Barn Conversions and New Builds
  • Extentions, Flooring, Roofing and Chimney Re-builds
  • Lime Plastering and Pointing
  • Cob Re-build - utilising either Cob Block or Natural Cob.
  • Stone Re-build and Pointing - most commonly with Lime Mortar
  • Structural work including Steel or Oak Beams and Lintels.
  • On site Consultancy and Tuition in traditional skills
  • Quantity Surveys - we can provide materials and labour estimates

Stephen has been a member of The Guild of Master Craftsmen for more than five years - an assurance of quality of workmanship and professionalism on the job.

Stephen has full liablity insurance upto and including working on Grade 1 listed buildings.
