Ian started I.A.Oakes, his own carpentry and bespoke joinery business, in July 1995.

He served a two year apprenticeship with a master craftsman, learning many traditional joinery skills which are sadly, now dying out.

Ian now puts these traditional skills to good use when constructing green oak garden rooms!

Always wanting to be a joiner, Ian started helping his father, a highly recommended builder throughout Staffordshire, from the age of 10.

Ian has since achieved NVQ Levels 1, 2 & 3 Bench joinery (CITB construction).
