Interview with Jamie

  • What is your nick name around the yard?

  • Johnny as in Johnny Knoxville - apparently I look like him?
  • When not at the yard what do you enjoy doing?

  • If leisure time was infinite I would be mountain biking, sailing, surfing and enjoying lazy sunny days in the camper van with my beautiful wife and son Ned.
  • What music would you be listening to if you where in the workshops?

  • Vampire Weekend- A punk. Its guaranteed to get me jumping!
  • What is you most embarrassing job before Carpenter Oak Ltd?

  • For a summer semester university job I was an ice cream van driver...... no I can't remember the tune. Great times but one summer was enough!


The story so far....... I was exposed to timber framing after watching Ben Law build his home from surrounding woodland on Grand Designs.  I took a week out from my career in 2007 to study at the Weald and Downland Museum on the 'timber framing from scratch' course.  I loved every minute. I used to be an estate agent of sorts (please don't hold that against me!), valuing and selling businesses for Christie & Co, after 5 years of success I'd had enough of the greed that infected every minute of every day.  I decided to change my life and move to Devon.  I have worked at Carpenter Oak since October 2009, I started as a trainee carpenter and now one of my roles involves focusing on our potential clients - like you, making sure your dreams are communicated through the process- after all we are here building beautiful structures for you! I also look after the marketing of Carpenter Oak Ltd, making it easier and fun for people to find and involve us in their project dreams. I still have to pinch myself as we get to work in some of the most beautiful locations around the UK constructing amazing oak homes. Please contact me to begin your Carpenter Oak journey.
