Before making the move into converting vehicles I was a professional carpenter for 20 years. During that time I took on all kinds of different projects including the full fit-out of a 60ft x 12ft canal boat, the conversion of a lorry into a mobile sculpture gallery space , converting an old 60's coach into a temprorary home for a festival manager and several carpentry jobs in various different camper vans and boats and I suppose this was the foundation of Barrell of Monkeys.
I run the company from a beautiful farm and workshop space in the Somerset countryside with the help of my partner Tarry and our two young boys Freddie and Jasper.
Oh and also the dog (May) helps out as best she can!
We create tailor made vehicle conversions for people who are looking for something a bit different; A mobile living space that enables them to express thier creativity and personality at the same time as fulfilling all of the practical needs that the individual project requires.
We love our work and truly hope we can help you to realise your dream and get those wheels rolling and heads turning!
I love my work and

This became an aluminium clad water tight slide-out box that housed raised up cabin beds for two children!
The woodbuners I have tended to use are from Gaz Punk Bitch. Hand crafted very well designed and incredibly functional.
