Carpentry property maintenance

Emergency carpenter job

It’s been raining recently, as a result, my local emergency carpenter skills have been called upon.

Time to call for your carpenter super hero.
It’s been raining recently!

Two local horse owners contacted me recently to ask if I could put together a hay feeder for their ponies.

As you can see, things have become somewhat boggy!

They were kind enough to send me a picture of the sort of thing they were looking for. So after hunting around my timber store, I pulled this together.

I made this based around a heavy duty pallet left over from a job and some fencing. It had to be sufficiently robust to withstand enthusiastic horses feeding and also keeping feed off the floor. Those of a less charitable disposition might ask what a ninja bank robber was doing in a pantomime horse outfit! I am assured this is the latest look from Newmarket….

Does your Kung-fu pony need an emergency carpenter or perhaps your gate needs fixing. I can do both! 😁

Garage storage

Everyone needs more storage and your garage can be changed to offer some really useful storage. Lockdown is making everyone focus on how their house works for them. Making the most of every spare space is a smart move.

I was recently asked by another client to design a storage system which could take care of some bulky items. This included the usual pots of paint, Christmas decorations and electrical items.

Using a design I used for a similar previous client (see the blog post for that project here), I created a storage space that allowed her to park her car at night, but made the best use of the remaining space.
