  1. So i thought i would do a little update, im sure there are some of you out there very interested to see our progress.

    Its slow but steady progress, there are many individual jobs within this project all with their own intricisy and challenges that all need to work as one. Nick Sanders also has a great imagination which is brilliant as it dares us, pushes us further its the red pill, we want to stay in wonderland and see how far the rabbit hole goes.

    So few photos.

    A reminder and our starting point.


    Starting to get some bare bones frame-work in so we have a starting point and can envisage space.


    Something that was always going to be quite time-consuming was the The Black Sea Journey map. We wanted to get an early start on this as we had to hand draw the map approximately to scale so it make sense, It then all needed to be cut out remounted and many other little bits made for it.



    Today the wood turned up ready to start making the desk into something you can actually use, and we started construction on some shelving and storage. Over the next few days we will be getting stuck into some of the little fidley yet exciting bits of the fixtures and fittings.

    That is all for now

    Same time next week then?



  2. This Month will see us teaming up with Nick Sanders to make his vision of an industrial office space inside his back cabin a reality. We have decided to call it the Black Sea Back Cabin Project as the narrow boat Unspoilt by Progress is the motor boat Nick Sanders used when he went from The Black Country to the Black Sea with a pair of Narrowboats and will hint to that journey.


    This will not be a traditional look back cabin as that is not what Nick wants and in all honestly we are not traditional back cabin builders. He wants industrial, unique, chunky, bespoke. A space he can enjoy to write-up his adventures. If you don't know what Nick does then check him out at

    So today we took delivery of some steel to get us started


    Then it was time take out the existing bits and pieces


    To be left with a starting point


    Then we did a bit of this


    and a bit of that


    To start to ease ourselves into what is going to be an exciting and creative project designing and making all kinds of items furniture and interesting fixtures to create something so individual you will either love it or hate it!

    We shall update the blog as we go and Nick is going to be doing some bits of video for a bit of a vlog so you can watch the journey unfold . We shall post here for your viewing pleasure.

    We have other exciting projects on the horizon for later in the year. Its looking to be a busy one!
