Gillingham, Annex and Orangery

Project: A Timber Framed Annex and Garage with Office, Farmhouse Refurbishment and Timber Framed Orangery in North Dorset for Philip and Moyra Jackson

We chose Dorset Timber Framing to to work with us building an annex extension and garage with office and then for the refurbishment of our Dorset Farmhouse and finally adding an orangery. Our choice was influenced by their straightforward approach, clear love of working with wood and willingness to work flexibly with us over an extended project. The choice turned out to be inspired and we have been delighted with the outcome which in every way has exceeded our expectations.

They helped us in formulating original concept ideas, working with architects, dealing with building regulations all the way through design, fabrication and construction with care, patience, skill and craftsmanship. Dean clearly has a eye for detail and an undoubted love of working with wood that is rarely found in todays building industry.

Not only did they carry out the original timber framing work but also ably project managed the farmhouse refurbishment dealing with trades and procurement of materials. All their work was carried out to budget, in a timely fashion, with good honest communication throughout all the inevitable issues when working on older properties.

Overall they were a joy to work with and we would have no hesitation in recommending Dorset Timber Framing to others.

We and our family have since completion in late 2015 enjoyed many happy days in the exciting and practical results of all their hard work and look forward to many more.
