DSH Carpentry and Design has been building and painting scenery for over 25 years, hiring pantomime sets for the last 10 and in amongst this creating bespoke timber buildings for people’s gardens and fields. Attention to detail is the trademark for DSH in all three aspects of their business bringing a unique and personal approach to their work guaranteeing they meet the brief and work within the budget. David and Sarah Holland make the perfect team; RADA trained David specialises in all forms of carpentry with his production management skills ensuring all projects run efficiently and on budget, Sarah is a talented artist and draughtswoman and can slip seamlessly between scenic painting and designing bespoke garden spaces.

Gathering details from their clients to learn exactly what they are after is an innate part of their process. Working closely with theatre designers and production managers to ensure that they supply high quality scenery at the right cost and fit for purpose. This follows through to their custom-made timber buildings and shepherd huts, allowing them to create beautiful garden structures within budget. As a result, they have a loyal client base that often return year on year.
