After an adventurous youth travelling Canada and Australia as an Engineer and Draftsman, James returned to his native Fife, Scotland to teach Craft Design and Technology before starting Thomson Timber.

Not only the Owner and Director of the company, James is also at the helm as Head of Design – his fine eye for detail can be seen in all our buildings. His enthusiasm for both traditional and cutting-edge techniques ensures Thomson Timber respects real carpentry whilst embracing the excitement of new technologies in construction and manufacturing.
