Sand blasting

An important part of getting the old timbers looking revitalized is to Sand blast them. This works for hardwood and softwoods, but can also be used for cleaning up any exposed brickwork. John at Buckenham blast Cleaning has completed a fantastic job on a set of old school radiators I bought back in 2001. First they were sand blasted down and then powder coated, some I had coated in white others are in a gun metal colour.

Oak Joiners

Most of all our oak work is undertaken by my own staff, however if I need a bespoke cupboard or Kitchen table made I will use Hudson Oak. A relatively young business but comes with bags of experience in this field, the number of oak ledge and brace doors they have made for me is nearing the 3 figure mark.

Furniture Wholesaler

To get the maximum Barn feel, the furniture made and sold by Mark Elliot is stunning. Most of the products are made from Oak but there are some ranges that vary and use other hardwoods. Mark Elliot was passionate that there was a market for traditionally handmade high quality furniture (like myself with barns) so he opened his first shop. Since then his extraordinary success has completely fulfilled that belief. Please have a thorough look at his website and shops.
