About Us

01460 68742

We specialise in small bespoke developments, one off 'forever home' new builds, renovations, conversions and extensions.

We realise that to most ordinary people having building work carried out on their home may be one of the most stressful times of their lives but it should also be the one of the most exciting! Through a clear quoting process and good communication throughout the build we aim to make it as enjoyable as possible for all in involved! Whatever the job we are dedicated to providing a great service and fantastic home for our customers to enjoy.

We have achieved the government endorsed TRUSTMARK which means we have been independently vetted to ensure we meet consistently high standards and we are also members of a number of respected trade bodies.

Dan Evans is our construction manager who has come on board with a wealth of knowledge and experience, Dan mainly project manages from groundworks through to completion of wet trades. He is also a friendly point of contact for customers.

We employ a great team of carpenters and bricklayers who all excel in their specialised area, meaning we can be the principal contractor on a variety of jobs, keeping customers costs down and removing the stress of dealing with multiple companies!

The projects we carry out range from renovations and extensions to complete new builds. We have experience working with rural properties with listed building conditions through to more bespoke properties. We're also happy to take on smaller work like fitting that new kitchen for you!

Director Philip Higgs

Phil is a carpenter by trade and founded HM Carpentry with Lee, both having over 10 Years’ experience in the industry.

Phil is predominantly office based, keeping customers informed throughout the build, ordering materials and rdering materials, pricing new work and managing the business.. One of the key elements of Phil’s working day is to stay in touch with our suppliers, throughout the last 10 years we have managed to build and maintain extremely good working relationships with many of the leading builder’s merchants and specialist suppliers meaning we can normally be one step ahead when it comes to price increases, shortages and new products therefore passing the savings we make onto our customers. 

Hobbies - Kayaking, Hiking and drinking coffee!

Director Lee Massey

Lee is also a fully qualified carpenter by trade and has worked together with Phil to bring HM to where it is now.

Lee’s main role now is to manage the projects, making sure they are carried out to the best of our ability and managing staff on site. Lee works closely with our apprentice carpenters, passing on his knowledge and carrying out regular reviews with all staff. 

One day a week Lee tries to free up time from being on site to come into the office and quote for potential jobs and meet with current customers. 

Hobbies - Camping beside carp ponds!
