Traditional Architectural Crafts in the Highlands of Scotland

RG Bushell is the trading name of Owen Bushell, Sole Trader.

Based in the Highlands of Scotland, I am a multi-discipline craftsman specialised in traditional and ecological architectural crafts.

I work seasonally between several different trades. Generally speaking, from spring I undertake construction and renovation works, with a focus on historic lime finishes. From late autumn I am Scotland's only producer of hand worked roofing shingles.

Throughout the year I am available for Signwriting and workshop joinery commissions.
