As a Christian company, I like to give good value for money as quoted in the Bible - “A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and overflowing.”

My prices are based on the species of timber used and the component parts of each piece of furniture, i.e. the price of each door, drawer, shelf, cornice, tabletop, etc.

As a general rule, a breakdown of the price of a commission is as follows :- Approx. one third of the price for timber and all the other materials, approx. one third for overheads (workshop overheads, office and computers, machine and tool maintenance & replacement, vehicle expenses, insurance, etc.) and one third labour charge.

I keep my prices as competitive as possible, but everything is genuinely bespoke and hand made with a very high build quality, so it does take a while to make. With a little care and attention, it should be the last kitchen/cabinet/table, etc. you will ever need.

I am not Vat registered, so there is no additional charge for it.

Because I rarely repeat a particular design, it can be difficult to give a quick accurate quotation, but I will always give you an estimate free of charge. However, a final fixed price can only be quoted after full design drawings have been prepared and agreed.

Design fees and prepayments

Included in any estimate or quotation is a design fee to cover the cost of producing design drawings and possibly visiting you. You are welcome to add more features to the design after the estimate or quote is agreed, but this will inevitably increase the final quoted price.

If you wish to defer the start of the job, or cancel after full design drawings have been prepared and agreed, then the design fee becomes due for payment, to cover the cost of my time producing the drawings and any visits, etc.

Visit fees

If you would like an initial visit to discuss a project or to take measurements, etc, my fee will be 30 pounds for a one hour local visit.
