Listed Property Club Sussex Heritage Award 2009 Project Book Carpenters Fellowship

Listed Property Owners Club Show 2010

The Listed Property Show 2010 was again a huge success this year. With thosands of visitors at the show we were kept very busy answering the many questions, the listed property owners needed to know, to help progress the projects on their homes. We made an oak frame especially for the show, which included a wide depressed arch doorhead, with carved spandrels, cuurved tension braces and a post splice repair demonstration.

Heartwood Construction shows a refreshing enthusiasm and a professional approach to the inevitable repairs that are required. The installation of a concealed steel (T / flitch plate) inside a prominent oak beam was completed with a minimum of fuss and no unsightly reminders. Chris Payne richly deserves his 2009 Sussex Heritage Trust Award for a competent and sympathetic approach to historic restoration.

I would like to add my name to the many satisfied customers of Heartwood Construction and Joinery. In our case they constructed a complex solid oak stair case over three floors, with an extra landing. This complex construction was in an Oast House which does not know what a “straight line or right angle” is! So this was a very complex difficult construction. We were delighted with the outcome, which was finished to an extremely high standard, and fitted with minimal disruption. I certainly would recommend Heartwood where complex hand crafted skills are needed.
