Roy started in the building trade soon after leaving school 47 years ago, initially
working on new houses.He completed his own bungalow by the time he was 20 working
nights and weekends.
He soon got bored with the repetition of new builds and went on to the restoration
of old buildings working on the restoration and reproduction of windows and doors
for The National Trust and Grand Estates such as Holkham Hall in Norfolk.
He has now transported his joinery workshop to Abruzzo restoring oldwindows,shutters
and doors and making new ones.
His skills cover most of the building trade and will take on most types of jobs, i.e. glazing tiling, stone work and small site repairs.
He also strips doors and windows and has a large stock of old traditional doors,
windows and furniture. He also makes beautiful hand-made kitchens.
