How I work

Extra to the wide range of products displayed in my online catalogue, if you are wanting a unique one-off design then you have come to the right place. My tried and true design process ensures satisfaction every time!


1 ~ Let’s chat about your ideas

After an initial phone call or email I arrange a time for you to come to the Kiwi Wood yard to discuss your requirements. Bringing photos of where you might wish to place your design on your property really helps me to get a feel for the practical and aesthetic considerations of your design. I always listen very carefully to my customers needs and ideas to guarantee satisfaction in the final product.

2 ~ I then do some research and sketch out some ideas

I love looking at other designs to fuel my creative inspirations. I also do research to make sure your new design will be as unique as possible. From here I get the creative ideas flowing and sketch these out while keeping the practical consideration in mind.

3 ~ Next we get together to review and discuss

I present my ideas and talk you through my creative process. We discuss all aspects of the design, make modifications if necessary and then finalise a plan.

4 ~ Then the fun really begins as I bring your unique design to life

I love producing one off designs, hand making all pieces myself at my workshop in Kaiapoi. All products are made from dressed top grade treated pine and are made to last. I take pride in finishing all work to the highest standards.

5 ~ All done! You can come and pick up or have your product delivered

You are welcome to come to the yard to pickup your product or ask me to arrange delivery.
