I am lucky enough to do the job that I love in the place that I love. We have a workshop near St. Ives which is where I live now with my family. I am able to bring the art of timber framing to sunny Cornwall where I teach others the skills that I have learnt. I also have experience in the building trade as I worked in construction for 4 years in Plymouth. I am enjoying living back in my home town with my wife and children. Oh yes.....and the surfing is free!!
