I’m Martin and I have lived in Lewes, East Sussex with my family since 2012.
Having lived in our 3 bedroom, semi detached house for 4 years we wanted more living space but didn’t want to move house. We considered a loft conversion and extension, before deciding to build a wooden cabin in our garden.
I designed and created all aspects of the cabin but have a team of trusted work colleagues that I bought in for the electrics, tiling and plastering. Apple Tree cabin was born with a living/dining area, kitchen, double bunk bed for 4 people and a bathroom with shower and toilet. We now have a self- contained extra space for guests, for our kids to hang out with their friends and to rent out via Airbnb
Qualifications and work history
I am a qualified gas engineer and plumber.
Before moving to Lewes I lived in the French Alps for 10 years running hotels and bars during the winter and working on building projects during the summer. These projects included barn renovations, wooden chalets, cabins and house renovations.
