By Chris Docherty, Founder and Director of Docherty Kitchens
Docherty Ltd is a family business based in Cornwall who specialise in the construction and installation of handmade solid-wood kitchens. Our product is typically robust due to the traditional joinery techniques that we adopt. We pride ourselves on our outstanding, customer focused, design process.
My wife and I moved to Cornwall in 2015 and built our family home just outside St Agnes on the North Coast. Prior to our move I had been to sea to train as a Marine Engineer but decided to discontinue my long journeys at sea in order to focus on carpentry and starting a family ashore. I proudly incorporated Docherty Ltd in 2012.
Building my own family home has allowed me to experience the construction industry from both sides – I have been the self-builder and the contractor which allows me to empathise with clients about all aspects of their project. I appreciate the value of concise communication with clients, particularly when it comes to budgets and scheduling and the importance of a personable style when working so closely.
I am passionate about woodwork. You will notice looking through our portfolio that this passion has been echoed in many of the projects that we complete. We like to discuss the use genuine, environmentally friendly, durable materials with our clients wherever possible and have a dedicated workshop containing heavy woodworking machinery that allows us to create almost anything that our customers request.
