About Me

We are a small family run business located on the Powis Shropshire border. We have been building 'stuff' for over 20 years. Builds range from narrow boats to our family home. We can build great garden structures, including Shepherds huts, Showmans wagons and Caravans, that make great alternatives to the traditional shed. They can be an alternative office, a spare bedroom, an adult wendy house, a potting shed, a bird hide, an attractive addition to a campsite for the new glamping craze, an alternative workshop a home cinema, or even a roadside tea wagon. Will consider building anything really, so ask away! Email davestilthouse@googlemail.com Phone: 01588 620132

Its Been a While.

Seems like we've been ignoring this blog for far too long, we've been busy doing stuff and just not got round to it.

Anyway:

We will also be attending The Shrewsbury Flower Show  in August, but more on that to come in the next post.

Also to come details of the "other stuff"  we've been up to



The 3 Counties show was a great success, and very enjoyable.
