Principle Carpentry and Building Services is a family run business established in 2010 by Peter Hodgins, an experienced carpenter with more than 20 years of quality builds under his belt.

We work alongside a team of trusted professionals from all trades which allows us to project manage jobs from the first quote to the finished product. Our capability and experience extends to transforming alcoves and kitchens to extending living spaces and converting lofts.

In just six years, the business has experienced rapid growth and built a reputation founded on referrals.

The secret to our success is simple: we provide an honest, professional, friendly and quality service. We enjoy what we do and our ultimate aim is a satisfied customer who will go on to recommend us to their family and friends. We understand that your home is the biggest investment you will make and we are passionate about producing work of the highest standard that adds value to your property and your lives.

The Principle team consists of Peter, his brother Luke, who joined as a partner in 2012, and his wife Flair who began as office manager in the summer of 2015 (shortly after the birth of their little girl Pearl).
