A Little bit about us as people...

Andrew Connolly

Director, Lead Designer and Installer

Andrew’s career in design and construction began over 20 years ago. He has worked extensively on a number of renovation and new build projects throughout the Northwest, where he specialised in bringing high quality joinery to each project. Coupled with this he has years taught construction, joinery and design for a number of years. After recently completing his own garden room and a desire to work for himself, an idea was born to combine his passion for construction and working with wood. With his close friend Florian Siemer and director of Chiemgauer Holzhaus, this partnership was an obvious choice to make. Both Andrew and Florian have the same exceptionally high standards, knowledge and understanding of the qualities and possibilities of building with wood. Sharing their knowledge and experience of this exceptional material and their strong friendship (they even share the same birthday!) meant that this was a relationship that would continue to grow from strength to strength.
