About Us

About JMW Carpentry & Builders


As third generation carpenters and joiners, at JMW we have a wealth of history and experience behind us.

Ours is a family business, run by James Woodhams and his wife Kate. James followed his grandfather and father into carpentry, and learned his craft apprenticed to a building company with its own joinery workshop, specialising in renovating and extending period properties.


From our base in North Wiltshire, we handle projects across the Cotswolds, Bath, Marlborough, North Wiltshire and West Oxfordshire – any location approximately within an hour of our headquarters. All our work is carried out by a core team and we have expert tradespeople we draw in for the different skills needed. Whenever we use sub-contractors, we always ask for three references so we know their work is of the highest standard and their work ethic matches our own.

We keep in touch with our clients throughout a project, and use state-of-the art software, Buildertrend, with each client having their own portal, so they can see exactly how their project is progressing.

We are tidy and professional, and we treasure your home as if it was our own. For us, every project is unique enabling us to deliver a bespoke service, which we manage from day one to completion.

We also nurture young talent and are proud that our first apprentice became Swindon College’s Apprentice of the Year.

Working closely with our clients

A partnership approach to building and construction


At JMW we believe in working closely with our clients, to ensure we create the home of their dreams. 
As experienced builders, we work closely with you from day one, when we meet on site to talk about your aspirations for your house: what is your ambition for the property?

What look and feel are you hoping for? Once we start, we keep in touch with you every step of the way.  We use state-of-the-art project management software – Buildertrend – to which you have complete access. You will have your own, lifetime portal, where you have access to the full schedule of works. You will be able to see who should be on site and when.

You’ll be able to see how the project is progressing and – importantly – you’ll be fully informed at every stage, with reassurance that everything is on track.

Our Vision

At JMW our vision is to be an award winning building and carpentry company focused on quality extensions, renovations and one off new build projects, recognised by clients, suppliers and staff for quality craftmanship, a professional approach and passion for developing the next generation of building talent
