Interview with Jean-Baptiste Rouvelin

What is the best project you have worked on and why?
Boyden for location and the challenge of the roof geometry

What do you enjoy doing when not in the yard?
Exploring Dartmoor, walking, woodwork and if I am injury free, a lot of running.

What is the most embarrassing job you have ever had?
I’ve always been a carpenter…..what does that tell you?

Do you have a favourite quote?
The show isn’t over until the fat lady sings

Where is your favourite place in the World?
Anywhere off road with some grippy running shoes

I trained as a carpenter in France as a Journeyman for five years, applied for a job in England and arrived at Carpenter Oak with a one year contract.  Over a decade on, I’m still here. I love Devon and Dartmoor and wouldn’t go back to France for all the money in the world.
