Upon leaving school in 1983, i started my carpentry apprenticeship with a well known company in Danbury Essex, whilst also attending college to gain my City & Guilds qualification(which i did to advanced level). Upon completing my apprenticeship in 1987 i went self employed working on housing refurbishments. DS Carpentry & Joinery was formed in 1998,t aking in all aspects of building, although kitchens/bathroom revamps and roofing have been at the fore front of work.
