Ochre + Elm is a family owned and operated business

We have been keen DIY’ers since buying and restoring our first home over 20 years ago. Since then we have restored more homes – two of them saved from demolition, relocated and restored to become much loved family homes.

In creating Ochre and Elm we are continuing the journey of recycling, restoring and re-loving that which would otherwise be unloved.
