Over the years I have been lucky enough to work with some great carpenters and general builders to create some really nice spaces. Whether its a b&b or an interesting   cabin or garden office  we are able to help. We have excellent contacts in all fields so are able to offer complete building services and advice.

My portfolio showcases the versatility and craftsmanship that define Ed of the Woods. Whether you're envisioning a stylish timber outbuilding or a functional garden office, I want to bring your vision to life.

The Hay Trailer

The Hay Trailer is a basic stick frame construction consisting mainly of a larch frame with western red cedar cladding. The windows are internally framed with Holm oak and elm, and externally framed with oak.

The majority of the timber was sourced from approximately 20m from the build site. It is available for hire through the air bnb website.

Jambo's Barn

Jambo's barn is a traditional English style timber framed barn built out of Douglas fir. It went together beautifully thanks to my friend Archie Vick, who did the drawings and led the  framing. His details are available on the contacts page.

Lodge farm stairs

I came across a fantastic old Norwegian spruce, covered in knots and wobbles. I milled the majority of the tree for tables, and ended up keeping the slabwood for years knowing that one day it would be perfect for something.

Sonia's Garden

When Sonia moved into her new house in Bath there was no access through her very steep garden, which was also the most direct route to take her children to school. We built her a set of Larch steps with an Ash handrail, leading down a hoggin path with milled oak steps. The bridge was also made from Larch. Once the Hard landscaping was done my wife, Sophie Strutt was able to advise what plants would be best in a woodland environment. Sophie's details are on the contact page.

Boiler room conversion

We were set a task to create 2 extra sleeping spaces in an awkward shaped room.  We designed and made a double mezzanine above a play space for the children. The upstairs has sturdy hand rails for safe climbing and  a banister all the way round to divide the space up safely whilst still letting light in. All the timber is native Ash and Elm and is sourced locally.
