Builder Craig Danson has seen the future – and it’s made of wood! Except you can’t tell from the outside because his timber-framed homes look exactly like a conventional house.

After two new-builds at Great Ecceston and Calder Vale, he has so much faith in the technique he’s building three four-bedroomed detached homes in an exclusive estate on his own land, knocking down his own house to do so.

“We’ve never been so busy,” he says. “My phone never stops. I ring everyone back and I find they’re willing to wait for a quality service.”

Craig says timber-framed buildings are wind and watertight far quicker, with the same build quality. An extension, for instance, could be weatherproof within a week.

Other jobs have included full house refurbishments after flood damage at St Michaels and Churchtown .

Craig, 41, still handles smaller building and joinery work, from unblocking an old lady’s gutter to roofing repairs, doors and windows. “We provide a detailed written quote which is honest and accurate, never adding on later. Clients appreciate the honesty and know where they stand from the start.”

Friendly Craig is pleased to have again won an award with the Safe Trader Scheme, run by the county council’s Trading Standards service, for the third year running.

He trained as a joiner with a big Manchester builder, gaining an HNC in Building Studies, and set up on his own in 2001.

He employs eight staff, including son Kieran, 21, an apprentice joiner after leaving Garstang Community Academy, and wife Lynsey on admin. His dad, Peter, helps with plumbing. “We offer a complete building service,” he adds. “The business is me. I meet people and do the quotes. We’re easy to deal with and advise you from start to finish.”

His firm, which is Gas Safe and FENSA registered, has now expanded into a unit at Great Eccleston with an office. “I’d be more than happy for clients to call for a coffee and discuss their plans,” he adds.
