About us

Jason Plant

Carpentry and building are my passions. I began work in the building trade in 1987 as a qualified structural welder, at age 17. In 1994 I commenced five years’ training in both Bench Joinery and Site Carpentry, which I completed to City and Guilds ‘Advanced Craft’ level.

After qualifying, I spent the following four years honing my craft in a high quality joinery workshop. We specialised in producing high quality custom-made decorative oak gates and garden structures. These were shown each year at the Tatton Park and Chelsea Flower Shows, and Eric Clapton became a customer after admiring a neighbour’s gates that I had made and installed! We also undertook quality joinery work for heritage buildings – one such project was the Garden Gallery at Lord Leycester’s Hospital in Warwick, which was unveiled by the Queen. During my time as part of this company I rose to the role of acting foreman, managing six other joiners.

In 2002 I began working for Treasures & Sons, specialising in heritage work. I spent two and a half years working for Martin Dawes on his manor house in Dinmore, Herefordshire, on a £30million+ project.

I decided to set up my own business in 2004, focussing on all aspects of restoring and renovating traditional, oak-framed buildings in the Border Counties. I moved to France in 2007 and continued the business there. 

Working with my select team of skilled tradesmen we have completed many, many projects in the Languedoc and surrounding regions and always leave customers happy with the results. 

I love my work, and look forward to working with you on your future projects.

Jason.
