"They took my Pinterest page and turned it into my ideal kitchen"

Testimonials

Dave wanted a complete redesign of the living space in his 1920s dutch barge. Through close collaboration with the client, we designed and built a clean, modern living space using a medley of solid oak, brushed steel and bleached pine.

"I couldn't be happier with what they've done. I live on a dutch barge and asked Arborhouse to design and refit the interior of my saloon, including kitchen, stairs, storage, bathroom and living area. The whole lot. Design - From the very beginning they had it spot on, listened to what I wanted, the look I was after but gave fantastic input when I was undecided or needed more ideas. I always felt like we were working to get what I wanted. Price - They priced the job, that's what I paid. Attention to detail - These guys are perfectionists. I didn't once worry that something might not look good, It was clear from the start they wouldn't allow that and the result is amazing. During the job - Boats are small places, but everything was kept as tidy and clean as possible. Reliability is important and Arborhouse are reliable. In summary my barge interior looks amazing, far better than I imagined in terms of both the finished quality and the design. I couldn't recommend Matt and Theo enough. I will be getting them back to do the other bits of my barge."

Georgina and Tom wanted us to incorporate an American Industrial style into a modern kitchen design.

"Matt and Theo are the real deal. They took my Pinterest page and turned it into my ideal kitchen. They're hardworking, communicative, diligent, friendly, skilled and excellent value for money. I'm so glad I stumbled across their website! I wish them all the best in the future!"

Martha and Steve wanted a bespoke kitchen and fitted dining area. We designed and fit an English country kitchen with a twist and used our dependable network of trades people to achieve a complete refurbishment of the space.

"Arborhouse built us a kitchen for our new house, it's beautiful and we love it!! They were great to work with - they used their knowledge and experience to design a kitchen with everything we wanted from it, incorporating all our ideas. Everything is designed to make best use of the space and be totally functional as well as look good. The guys are great craftsmen who really care about their work. I am so glad we asked them to make us a kitchen instead of buying one from a shop, we have the exact kitchen we want, with everything designed for the way we want to use it, made to the highest standard out of quality materials. We could never have got anything like this for anywhere near this price from a shop. The guys are lovely and I got so used to having them around for the first few weeks in our new house that it was quite strange when they weren't there any more! Our kitchen is our pride and joy, six months later and we still love it just as much and we spend all our time in that room. I can't thank them enough and I would recommend them to anyone."

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."

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 is one of our long term clients for whom we have carried out several projects including an office space and reception room.

"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."

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 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.
