Welcome to our latest addition to the website. The first thing we would like to do is wish all our customers a Happy New Year, Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i Chi.
Well January has got off to a busy start, which is unusual for any January, as those in the Construction Industry will generally attest. We have some interesting work coming in for the both the Building company and for our Joinery.
On the joinery side Oak seems to be the wood of choice for our customers. A pair of glazed oak framed panels for an Hotel (with fire rated glass), an oak door for a beautiful old farmhouse near Malvern (we manufactured and fitted all new windows, including traditional sliding sash ones to the front elevation a few years ago, these too were in oak - an example of which and the large bay window as well as the kitchen window is featured on our gallery page).
Oak is an amazing wood to work with, if you are interested a quickhistory of the oak is available written by BRIEN WALKER BSc (Est Man) FRICS, FNAEA.
The weather, based as we are in Tregaron which is snuggled against the beautiful Cambrian Mountains, has been wet, very wet. But it has also been (for winter) warm, no snow and none of the icy temperatures we experienced last year, when the ground was frozen to a depth of around 18 inches. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it stays that way too, well perhaps not quite so much rain, never happy with the weather are we?
On the building side we are waiting to start two new builds, one has finally gone to planning, the other we are starting mid February. Ditches seem to be popular with our customers this winter, as cascades of water seem to appear from every direction every time it rains, flowing freely down driveways, into houses and causing sides of lanes to collapse or become temporary rivers and lakes.
Well that is about it for now, if you want to contact us click here, if you would like a quote for joinery or building work, click here.
