Curvy little number

Here's something a bit different for us, a curvy deck! Built once again in local organic timber, (Douglas fir)

The photo doesn't do the size of this deck much justice, as a rough guide, every run of timber at the centre of the deck is around 9 meters in length.



A deck overlooking a pond, it doesn't get much more relaxing than this! Spot the frog?

We used fence posts at the front of the deck to block the underside of the deck and give a rustic finish

The sawn boards will now be left to weather and in 6-12 months will be a silvery grey colour. These hard wearing boards will offer a very long lasting deck for the owners to enjoy. 

Hope you like this build! A lot of people assume that summer time is when we are busy, but having traded for over a decade we generally have the same waiting time all year round; so don't wait till spring to think about your outdoor living area, give us a call NOW! 😃😃😃😃


Douglas-fir staircase

Here's a recent build from a garden with tricky access in Aberdyfi.
Our friends at Celtic Masonary had already dug out a huge amount of the cliff and held it back with fantastic stone work, before we got in to install a new staircase to make access to the raised garden easier and safer than the old staircase.

Custom made Douglas fir stair case - the whole staircase was made on site, after carrying the timber up around 30 steps and through the house! The timber is organically grown and comes form a local saw mill making this build a virtually carbon free project.

Douglas-fir is the hardest softwood available. Its an awesome alternative to treated softwoods and looks great as well.


We've built a lot of 'big' awkward staircases over the last 15 years, and are always up for a challenge. If you have a raised or cliff top garden you'd like help accessing, do give is a call or drop us an email to arrange a visit and quote. THANKS
