Testimonials

Paul and Jane wanted a timber framed and glass garden structure built at the rear of their property. They chose a beautiful Douglas-fir frame. We brushed out the soft grain to bring out the intricate natural patterns in the wood. We then used Polyx Oil to give the wood a long lasting and environmentally sound finish.

"Thank you Arborhouse, for the wonderful work, we are so pleased with the roof.  The canopy has transformed the way we use the space, bringing the outside in, and letting the inside get out.  We loved your enthusiasm for the project, and are happy to recommend your work to any who ask. Thanks again."

Rachel Sokal is one of the property managers to whom we provide a complete property maintenance service. We manage a skilled team of professional trades people to undertake all necessary repairs and improvements. Please contact us for details of our property maintenance service.

"ArborHouse have been the most reliable, honest and innovative tradespeople I have had the pleasure to deal with. So much so, I was able to organise extensive and urgent roof repairs whilst abroad, safe in the knowledge that the work would be completed quickly and skillfully with clear and open communication about progress. I'm also impressed by the way they approach a job with creativity rather than simply saying I need to replace everything straight away. Can't recommend them highly enough!"

Sarah Mott contacted us to design and make a one-off piece of built-in, fitted furniture. We used reclaimed Victorian floorboards to great effect and included many useful and innovative design features such as bi-folding doors so as not obstruct the hallway when open, large soft-close drawers with reclaimed copper pipe hanging rails and tennis racket holder.

"Under stairs cupboard beautifully made, a work of art, thankyou!"

John Mowat calls us for all his fine detail carpentry. From solid wood flooring to set building, restoring and hanging antique doors and all his other various home improvements. In January 2012 we completely fitted out his garden office.

"The team transformed a wooden outbuilding into a well designed and well built office space. They fitted insulation and electrics before plastering and finishing to a high standard. Arborhouse's skill was shown in the way they worked within the constraints of existing buildings and materials to deliver a real quality product at a good price. Their attitude is very positive and they are willing to accept a challenge. I would be more than happy to use Arborhouse again and would recommend them to others."

Shannon Coles wanted a full single storey extension to the rear of her property. We project managed from the design stage through to final completion. It was important for her that the building had a minimal impact on the environment. We used reclaimed timber and designed a sleek, modern bespoke kitchen as well as providing custom built joinery such as doors and windows.

"Arborhouse built an extension, comprising a dining area and a bathroom at the back of the house in the summer of 2012. They also redesigned and re-fitted my kitchen, using re-cycled materials. I live in a conservation area and the extension had to be of stone and slate: the walls were built by a local stonemason and the plumbing for the bathroom was done by a local plumber. The team worked really well with these other professionals. The house was built in the 1890s, it is small and there is only a tiny back garden, so the team had to work with an old building in a very small space.

My kitchen and the extension are beautiful to look at as well as functional: the cupboards, units and surfaces are all individually designed and no new materials were used so the environmental impact of the refurbishment was kept low. The wooden floor, made of scaffolding planks, is particularly beautiful, as are the windows and the back door, which were designed to fit with the age of the house. The Arborhouse team have excellent design skills as well as a huge range of practical building skills.

Theo and his team are lovely, friendly and hard working young people who cleaned up at the end of every day and were a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend them too highly."

Theodore Weywood very talented Bristol Carpenter

Theodore Weywood
Theo is immersed in the world of boats and lives aboard his own houseboat which he was lucky enough to design and fit himself, he even restores dinghies and rowing boats in his spare time. Often the bespoke furniture we build is based upon some piece of flotsam or jetsam which floats past his window. He brings an attention to detail and his own carefully considered design aesthetic to the arborhouse team.

Matthew Merttens highly skilled Bristol Carpenter

Matthew 'Mon' Merttens
Matthew’s favourite thing is a joint so tight it squeaks when you put it together. He has been building and designing wood cabins for many years and his services have been called upon as far afield as the Scottish highlands and Normandy. His experience and understanding of wooden structures is invaluable to our work. He has a strong love of design and his aesthetic incorporates anything and everything from architectural salvage to stained glass and reclaimed wood.

We both love to cook and even served our time in professional kitchens, we bring this love of food and understanding of how a kitchen should work to our unique kitchen designs.

Together we lead all projects cooperatively. We have found that our different skills and approaches strengthen our business, two heads really are better than one!

Wood cabins

Ethical considerations are at the heart of what we do. We strive to create functional and beautiful living spaces with as little impact on the environment as possible.

Wood cabins

One of the things we enjoy most is designing and building wood cabins. These projects provide us with the perfect opportunity to use reclaimed wood and other interesting features, such as stained glass and architectural salvage.

We can also employ our extensive knowledge of green building techniques, so whether you want a traditional timber frame, straw bale building, living roof or wood cabin we believe our designs are the best there is. Each wood cabin we build is completely unique and unlike anything else available on the mass market. Our wood cabins blend into their surroundings and reflect the charming character of the reclaimed materials we incorporate into our designs.

As standard our wood cabins come fully insulated, with electrics and wood burners can be fitted as an extra.

Boat interiors

In a finite space the small details become very important. The way the space and individual items of bespoke furniture interact must be carefully and thoughtfully designed.

Boat interiors

In a finite space the small details become very important. The way the space and individual items of bespoke furniture interact must be carefully and thoughtfully designed.

Arborhouse boat interiors are superior in build quality and design. We create beautiful boat interiors using reclaimed materials and our clever lay-out designs give a feeling of space. We believe our ethical approach is in keeping with the enviromental considerations of boat users and we use eco friendly products, reclaimed wood and incorporate unusal features in to our boat interiors. As a small company of boat interior specialists you can be sure of an unrivalled service and quality of finish.

We have the use of a boatyard and a fully equipped workshop in Bristol to build your bespoke fitted units. From solar installation to 12-volt systems, we have it covered.

Kitchens

We bring our love of cooking and understanding of how a kitchen should work to our extraordinary kitchen designs.

Kitchens

We love to cook and even served our time in professional kitchens, we bring this love of food and understanding of how a kitchen should work to our unique kitchen designs.

When you factor in fitting costs you can still end up paying over the odds for a bottom of the range, mass produced kitchen. We can offer prices on bespoke hand made kitchens that can compete with any big name provider. The price we’ll give you will be for an individually designed fully fitted hand made kitchen with high quality workmanship. Even if you think you cannot afford a hand made kitchen, it’s always worth contacting us for a free of charge quote.
