Eastnor Joinery

3rd November 2017

Hand crafted steps pick out the natural wood handles

This is some of the finished joinery I completed at Eastnor in north Cornwall’s Polzeath.  The house was originally built back in 1928 (going by some dated signatures I found on the roof rafters) and much of the internal finishing remained unchanged. This really helped maintain the beautiful character of the house.

Steps to access the shelves match the design

Custom built shelving to fit the alcove

My clients (and indeed I) felt it important to remain sympathetic to this character as much as possible.  Which meant recreations were made of everything from skirting boards, to dado rails and internal doors. Samples of most of the mouldings had to be sent away so that special cutters could be made up to re-produce them.

A variety of storage custom built to suit the period of the home

Built in storage selves and bench

Corner cupboard built to fit the style of the house

Built in shelves, cupboards and a stable door

The new downstairs hallway shown in the photos had a stable door to the back garden, a built in bookcase, wardrobes, seating and a ‘hop-up’ stool (to acess the higher reaches of bookcase/wardrobe etc!) all created in the work shop and hand painted on site by my good friend Dave (many thanks for putting a great finish on all the work!)
