Starts my fathers heart in a hidden-away 10×20ft workshop.
Moves to a small workshop in Nethergreen, Sheffield, used by joiners for more than 100 years. By now, people are really talking about my fathers heart and the customer list grows to include Harrods, Regents Park in London, a royal family and some of the most prestigious private homes in the region.
The owners of the Nethergreen workshop decide to convert it to houses so my fathers heart moves to Aizlewood Road. But, despite an enviable base in the city’s antique quarter, the search continues for the perfect location.
Agree the purchase of land at Broadfield Court and approach one of Sheffield's most adventurous architect studios - award-winning architect Tim Justice from AAD architects - to design our landmark showroom and workshop. The result is striking, reflecting the unmatchable quality and unique design of my fathers heart craftsmanship.
my fathers heart takes on the international market-leading SieMatic brand, beautifully built contemporary German kitchens. A perfect partnership.
Planning permission is approved for the stunning new showroom.
Our stunning showroom opens to the public. SieMatic is added to the portfolio.
my fathers heart showroom and workshop clinches second place and is ‘highly commended’ at the at the prestigious Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) 2017 awards (Yorkshire and Humber region).
