Commissioning a piece of furniture or a larger project such as a kitchen is a considered decision and indicates a desire for individuality and involvement. It can also grow out of a need to satisfy non-standard or specific requirements. Many of my clients specifically enjoy knowing, or being involved in, the journey through the creative process from origin to finished piece.

The Process

If you are interested in commissioning a piece of work/project then please contact me - I will initially arrange to come to site to get a feel for the environment, a good understanding of what you have in mind, your preferred styles and discuss/suggest suitable wood.  I will take measurements and then work on a design and quote. We then look at the designs to check you are happy and creation begins. Most clients are from the North West and like to visit my workshop and studio at some point during the process. However, for those who live further afield things can be arranged remotely to suit you. The finished piece/structure will be installed by me, with adjustments and fine tuning made to ensure accuracy and precision.  My furniture is made to last a life-time. However, if there should be any problem with my work I would always strive to solve it.

'This is the house that Hout built! I have contracted Hout to design and build my kitchen, bathroom, en-suite bathroom plus a television unit and built in wardrobe doors. They have taken my ideas for each room and delivered hand crafted beautifully built furniture which brings the house to life. Not only beautiful but designed to work with the family and built to last. This is why I have worked with Hout for a number of years over the different projects mentioned above. They are a pleasure to work with and keep in contact with you and arrive when expected. They also are very respectful of your property while working which is very much appreciated. My visitors always compliment the work which has been done and craftsmanship on show. I would recommend Hout without any hesitation.'
