Robert Fathers Hi and welcome to my blog! Through my blog I plan to share some of my current projects and show you how oak framed buildings are made and constructed. Oak is a beautiful, strong and sustainable material. If you're thinking about using green oak for a new construction within your home I hope my blog will be of assistance to you. By following my blog you'll be able to see how I work and my level of detailed craftsmanship and finish. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and should you wish to discuss any project you have in mind please contact me for an informal chat about your plans. I will be very happy to help you in anyway I can. Kind regards, Rob

I cut and work the frame on site throughout all stages of it's development, this gives my client a real sense of involvement, understanding and appreciation of the work I undertake. I believe it's really important to involve client's throughout the project build, ...
