What Our Customers Say…

The Little Woodshed has constructed several items for me including fitted bookshelves, a fitted desk and a display unit. In every case, the work was done to a very high standard and in accordance with the design and timescale agreed at the time of order. Excellent service and workmanship.

Neil made us some replacement wardrobe doors, drawer fronts and additional storage.  He did a great job and is meticulous in his attention to detail.  The price was reasonable too for a bespoke service. We recommend him.

Neil has just completed a brand new kitchen for my mother in law. He has been absolutely brilliant to deal with from the get go and more than once has gone above and beyond on the project, not least because my mother in law is quite elderly and we live in London. His attention to detail is scrupulous, he’s super-organised and he’s a decent, hardworking and really nice chap. And it was all done on time! Thoroughly recommend.

Rachel Ablett

This varies dependant on what you require and what your budget allows. A realistic budget needs to be in mind to allow for the material costs, labour and the designing and fitting time. Whilst DIY shelving may only cost a few hundred pounds for a carpenter to fit, our fully fitted and finished units with lighting and TV housing can cost several thousand pounds.

With The Little Woodshed you have the opportunity to can get a design and fixed price quote before you have to commit to a full deposit. Alternatively, if it’s just an idea of budget you require, we can give an estimate after a simple conversation to give you the option to proceed further without any cost to you.

Initially we can give an estimate via e-mail or during a telephone conversation providing you have an idea of the size and style of your proposed scheme. We can then meet to measure up and discuss specific requirements and set a specification and design/layout. you will get a formal quote within 7-10 working days then should you wish to proceed a deposit of 50% is taken and samples and final revision to the design and specification can be made.The build time and install date is issued (normally this is around 8 weeks) upon completion the balance is paid.

The choice of materials and finishes are vast. We can discuss your requirements and provide samples in order to assist your decision making.

We design and make our cabinetry in our workshops:

  • All our cabinetry is designed after a survey using CAD software, making sure everything fits and works correctly before it leaves the workshop
  • We use reputable commercial suppliers for our timber and panel products guaranteeing quality and reliability. Products such as Medite® moisture resistant mdf and Egger® laminates
  • We use FSC sourced timber from reputable merchants, and we often machine to size in our workshops. Quality timber and mouldings are used, not just whats available at the time.
  • We use commercial grade ironmongery, such as GRASS® Tiomos® hinges and Dynapro® runners, which again assures quality and durability, we avoid inexpensive ironmongery which is great for the first few months….
  • We spray finish our work guaranteeing the best looking durable finish possible. We use the right lacquers for the right conditions from suppliers such as Movac® Morrells® and Teknos® these can be colour matched to the DIY brands of paint such as Little Greene and Farrow & Ball etc.
  • We fit our work expertly using quality tools which are designed for the job with integrated dust extraction to help keep harmful dust and debris to a minimum. We care about your property and well being as well as our own.
  • We’ve been doing this to the highest standards for a long time and we have always carried appropriate liability insurance. We also guarantee our work to give you lasting piece of mind.
