Large Trussed Roof

October wasn't what I had planned as I had intended to work on my own kitchen and pantry area. The roof on my brothers house took priority in the end so he'd be weather tight by Christmas and it's nice to have been a part of his house build.

The roof was a monster and when it turned up we got a sense of scale of the thing! It's all attic trusses and they've got 8ft (2.4m) ceilings in them

This is a follow on from my last post.
Always nice when the customer sends you a picture of the unit painted and installed in place!

Basin Table

Lovely commission this week to make a small table for a basin to sit on in a bathroom. 

The work is to be painted so decided on tulip wood to make the table. Such a lovely easy wood to work with and also great because it takes a painted finish so well.

Roofing A Shed

My brother was putting his house on the market and wanted to finish a few jobs off before he did. 
One of them was to do something about the brick shed in the garden. He'd taken the roof off sometime ago and hadn't got round to doing anything with it. 

 The brick work sloped the roof the wrong way so I decided it was best if we built up a some timber frame across the front so we could gain the height we needed. Then add in a wallplate at the back and sloping sides.

Fitting A Suspended Ceiling

I got a message about this job a short while ago. Fitting a suspended ceiling to help create a new music studio for one of my customers.
 A fairly simple job. Fitted and bolted two supporting beams then used joist hangers to suspend the other timbers. All the bolts are in sheer (and there's plenty of them) making it a real strong job. I used large timbers so there would be no sag in the ceiling. Two rows of noggins gives the plasterboard full support at the edges as well so there should be no cracks.

Next we need to add loads (and I mean loads) of insulation ten board it with sounds deading plasterboard. I also need to add lots of fixing points in the ceiling so things can be hung from it if needed.

Library Commission - Reading Pods & Tree Wall Art

So a few months ago I got an email asking about a reading chair in the forest school area. I volunteered my services to build it, I thought that'll be fun! Somewhere along the line the new school library became my baby instead! 
The village has had it's school in temporary accommodation for the last three years, and although it's been fine it's not the best for the children and tricky for them at times (too hot in summer for one). 
So over the last year there has been a new school being built with much excitement from everyone who has children there.

Simple job from a regular customer of mine. 
Chang this tired old back door and frame:-

The porch is getting rendered as well so it should all look great when it's done!
