  • Stunning Loft Conversion using British Hardwoods Timber

    A loyal customer of ours has recently used our planed all round oak timber to stunning effect in his unique loft design project. The project has now been shortlisted for a prestigious design award, and our oak battens feature in every one of the photos he submitted!

    Woodside Loft is a residential loft conversion to what was originally a 1930s three-bedroom semi-detached house. The pairing of the oak timber flooring with the planed oak vertical battens has created an organic/modern-retro feature. We love his design ideas.

    Our customer is up against some really big design agencies, so we’d really like to help him win. (David vs Goliath!).

    The public vote closes in just over a week, so please take a look at what he’s created and, if you like it, then please do vote for him.

    Here’s the link:

    Good luck Rob!

  • Yorkshire Three Peaks Fundraising Challenge

    A huge well done to members of the British Hardwoods Production Team who successfully conquered the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge at the weekend. The gruelling walk includes the local peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough (plus all the bits in between). They completed the walk in just 11 hours - raising funds for the mental health charity "Mind".

    The intrepid team - James, Ben, Steve, Jamie, John and Nick

    Before the walk, Ben said:

    ". . . We are a group of normal men working manual jobs living normal lives. We spend all day every day together (well Monday-Friday) and are lucky enough to have the ability to chat and check in with each other, not everyone has that. We all know someone who has suffered in silence with mental health or have experienced this ourselves. We chose Mind because we want to increase awareness and spread the word that it is ok to not be ok. With this in mind we want to push ourselves to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks in under 12 hours . . ."

    Well, they certainly achieved that. Some 50,000 steps later and the boys were home and dry, nursing aching limbs and blistered feet, all in aid of a very worthy cause. We are all very proud of their team effort and extremely impressed that they all made it into work today, footsore but ready to go.
