We believe, that regardless of budget, everyone should be able to access true craftmanship and be able to maintain the character of their homes.
We are passionate about keeping the character and charm of historical homes alive. The use of real wood, instead of imitation products is a more natural and sustainable option for use in your house, as well as creating a more healthy living environment. We believe in the ethos that the greenest house is one already built and that sympathetic restoration is the most environmentally forward way of maintaining your home. We also pride ourselves in injecting character into modern homes and creating focal points, enhancing the homes atmosphere.
Relatively little information about carpentry is available from pre-history (before written language) or even recent centuries because the knowledge and skills were passed down person to person, rarely in writing, until the printing press was invented in the 15th century and builders began regularly publishing guides and pattern books in the 18th and 19th centuries. The oldest surviving, complete architectural text is Vitruvius' ten books collectively titled De architectura which discusses some carpentry.
Informally a laborer may simply work alongside carpenters for years learning skills by observation and peripheral assistance. While such an individual may obtain journeyman status by paying the union entry fee and obtaining a journeyman's card (which provides the right to work on a union carpentry crew) the carpenter foreman will, by necessity, dismiss any worker who presents the card but does not demonstrate the expected skill level.
