About Us

I enjoy living and working in the natural environment and I believe in preserving as many trees as possible. Therefore, we only use local timber which has fallen or been felled for safety reasons or is proven to be sustainable. Some of our timber is FSC certified. We also try to use local craftsmen and businesses locally to source some of our products.

How we started

I started as a chainsaw carver 13 years ago whilst working for a large tree surgery company. 

Eventually I started gaining clients and my carvings proved popular so I became a full time chainsaw carver. That was 7 years ago and now I get to travel all over the UK to work on commissions and abroad to the USA taking part in shows. I have placed in many competitions and in 2014 I placed first in the European Chainsaw Carving Championships which is held every two years defending my title. I also won in 2012. 

During a recent show I looked at a basic wooden hut which gave me the idea to construct my own. This evolved over the past months into the shepherd huts you see today. 

During the last eleven years I have gained many skills and carving is now not my only work I do. I have been trained in green oak framing, joinery, construction techniques and wood milling. All of these including the technical cutting I am asked to do to ensure we make our shepherds huts to the highest standard possible using the best materials available. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the materials makes a very strong, quality product.
