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. Some notable recent projects include restoring a large 13th-Century Colombage house in Mirepoix, renovation of two old town houses below La Cité in Carcassonne, and the conversion of two old Carcassonne houses into apartments and a maisonette, and many more.. Each of these projects were complete and complex renovations, working with my select team of skilled tradesmen. In 2019 I moved to Edinburgh.

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