Little Tree Woodcraft

Little Tree Woodcraft specialise in design and build of timber products. We pride ourselves on employing traditional methods of carpentry and construction whilst using locally-sourced timber.
We believe that in order to achieve successful, timeless quality products, the following elements are essential:

Good Design

Our small design team has over 20 years experience.  This wealth of experience allows us to deliver aesthetically pleasing designs for all of our creations.

Experienced Tradesmen

Our timber frames are all made by hand in our yard using traditional tools and methods. Our experienced building team then join the project to sympathetically transform the beautiful frame into an elegant and luxurious home.

One-to-one personal service

We enjoy working closely together with our clients, architects and other specialists in order to transform your dream concept to a reality, within the agreed budget and time frame.

Project management

From start to finish the project will be overseen off-site to control budget and timescale as well as on site for safety, productivity and quality control.

The People Behind the Business

Our Team

My name is Adam. My father is a master carpenter and I watched and learned about carpentry from a very early age. I remember his workshop, the rack of tools and the curls of planed timber on the floor. Timber fascinates me. By the age of 18 I had completed my apprenticeship as a carpenter and by the age of 25 had built my first house. The first house went on to the next and more, working with domestic clients, architects, contractors and developers. The experience is always endlessly fascinating as no two projects are ever the same.

This passion runs through the veins of the team at Little Tree Woodcraft.
