About Us

Who we are

As you can guess from the name - our Shrewsbury based, Shropshire building firm is headed up by Jack Buckley. Jack has over 15 years experience as a builder and carpenter in Shropshire. He was actually crowned the UK's best carpentry apprentice when he first started out with the Federation of Master Builders! 


His former employment as foreman with a leading, award-winning Shropshire construction firm, saw him managing a team of 10 people and working on £multi-million projects including listed buildings, barn conversions, new house builds and a raft of smaller domestic projects. 


In 2014 Jack started his own building firm. Projects have included everything from small domestic jobs like door fits and porches to unique concept-designed, entire house builds including the latest building techniques and environmental considerations.


Jack has a small, trusted, professional and experienced team including bricklayers, carpenters, plasterers, electricians and plumbers.  

Working With You

We offer an end-to-end client experience and work together to cultivate excellent client relationships. We are friendly and approachable from the first moment you contact us to project hand-over. We are not a building firm who won't get back to you.


We pride ourselves on good communication, and accommodate any changes or extras along the way as we appreciate your project can and will often change.


"Jack and his team have recently finished a single storey extension to our house. From the outset, Jack was a great partner in the project, always offering up options when required, and providing guidance through each stage. 


"Communication was excellent from start to finish, and nothing was ever too much trouble, with Jack willing to flex his labour to accommodate any changes in the plan. We are delighted with our new space, will definitely use Jack again, and would highly recommend him and his great team for any project, big or small."
