thatched glory

Although lots of our work is now quite 'modern' in many ways, we are fortunate to still be commissioned to build a diverse range of traditional homes, and it is probably these homes where people are more prepared to invest in traditional rural skills and craftsmen. It is wonderful to be able to straddle the divide of cutting edge technology and development and the quintessential English craft. We are very lucky.

To illustrate the point - here's a pretty thatched house nearing completion - with a darling little bird on the ridge as a personal marker of the thatcher. And inside the frame will bear the personal marks of the Border Oak carpenter who handcrafted the oak. Ahhhhh........
