Welcome to Baker Developments
My name is Austin and I have 40 years experience in carpentry and joinery, specialising in kitchen and bedroom refurbishments. 
Having completed my 6 year apprenticeship at Tottenham Technical College I worked for a local authority for 12 years, including 3 years in charge of 12 carpenters.I then spent several years maintaining  a chain of restaurants, in the West End, including full refurbishments.  This was followed by 2 years as a shop-fitter in the South East and at one time I was commissioned to make a Thomas the Tank Engine display for Hamleys in Regent Street.

After working for a maintenance firm in the West End and City of London I began specialising in kitchen and bedroom installations which led on to full house refurbishments.

After 7 years as Maintenance Manager in a large private boarding school I have returned to what I love doing, which is all manner of carpentry and joinery.
This includes:

  • Fitted kitchen/worktop installation
  • Fitted bedroom furniture installation
  • Wooden window repairs and replacement (including secondary double glazing
  • Fitting doors and frames internal and external)
  • Skirting, architraves and coving
  • Wooden flooring
  • Suspended ceilings (grid and metal frame systems)
  • Studwork
  • Plaster boarding
  • Garden buildings and decking
I also paint, decorate and wall and floor tile.
