Tew Timber Buildings

In addition DSH have been creating bespoke timber buildings since 1995. Each project, from green oak barns to children’s play houses, are individually designed and craftsman-built by David and Sarah Holland. Having both come from careers in theatre scenery construction, David and Sarah are used to pushing the boundaries and creating structures that are truly unique and fit for task. They build to a design rather than designing within the constraints of normal building methods.
