About Us

Nick Secker, Owner

The Beginnings

Having finished my apprenticeship with a well known family firm in Hereford,  I started at a restoration company in South Wales where I had the great pleasure of working on some of the finest buildings in Britain including Windsor Castle, Hereford Cathedral, Carrey Cennen castle. In 1997 I began employment with a large firm in Hereford, where we worked on notable buildings such as Kenilworth Castle, Lower Brockhampton, Gate House, Whitley Court, Boat House etc.  In 2001  i went into a parternership in restoration and timber framing where we had many satisfied customers.  In 2005, I made the decision to go it alone and haven’t looked back.  Now, I have a small number of skilled craftsmen assisting me to make some of the highest quality frames that you will have the pleasure to see.  I personally pride myself on quality and honesty and will deliver you a dream building.  My love of timber and traditional skills we use allows you have just what you want in any style, all with a common sense approach.
