This section is dedicated to bringing together all the various websites and local merchants that help supply us with tools and materials.
Tools and Iron Mongery

General building materials and timber
"Travis Perkins hold the widest selection of sheet material and timber and its generally all of a high quality."
Mass produced joinery such as Kitchens, doors, bedroom and office units
"Howden's are probably the most competitive store locally for kitchen and doors products. Its a trade only counter though."
Tools and machinery
"David Hunt Tools are specialists tool suppliers. They do not sell materials or iron mongery but do have a massive stock of power and hand tools and are very competitive. They are friendly and able to offer lots of advice."
"I believe Wickes as the best DIY store in the area for quality and price. They are aimed more at the trade than the public and are able to supply bulk materials for larger building projects.
Online door supplier
"All the building suppliers offer a range of doors, but not the full variety these people can offer. The doors are variable in quality so you have to choose wisely, price is always a fair indicator!"
"Down load a plan that describes the materials you need and illustrates the construction techniques clearly for you to build out at our workshop."
