Community DevelopmentDavid first became interested in the design and construction of wood fired kilns for the production of ceramics. This naturally led to the design and construction of several pottery studios intended for community use. One thing often leads to another, like initiating a project to develop East Oxford Community Centre in order to offer new and better facilities.
David has worked on a wide variety of house building projects, ranging from the renovation of a buildings in a 17th Century Manoir farm complex to the conversion of a barn into a 3 bedroom dwelling. David also has experience working on new constructions, not just on the renovation of old buildings and property conversions.
