THE BUILD

My work comprises of freestanding, reclaimed and fitted pieces. Where possible and if budget allows I love to work with reclaimed materials as the finish has a certain rustic quality and charm unable to be reproduced by new materials.

My majoirty of work over the years have been bespoke fitted furniture as most people require space saving ideas, I have a plethra of work including many alcove units, kitchen cupbaords, bedroom wardrobes of varying sizes, TV wall units, bookshelves, office areas, plate racks, library’s, window seats, boot rooms and bed designs.

My freestanding pieces have included varying designs of tables, kitchen islands, bench seats, storage boxes and beds.

I also have a seperate buisness where we make bespoke Shepherd Huts and other garden structures. They are hand built to a very high standard and are based on the idea of an old Shepherd’s hut.

“Carsten has been a pleasure to work with. Twice we were let down by other carpenters who promised much and delivered nothing. He appreciated what we wanted and kept us fully appraised with his designs. He visited us twice to check he was heading in the right direction. The units were exactly what we wanted and have undoubtedly transformed our kitchen.”
