As you may know, I house all the equipment, tools and materials needed for building 3d printed arms from my rather cosy standard 8x6 garden shed. I cannot stand up or even sit comfortably anymore to work as every nook is crammed full with all the necessary tools and equipment that allow me to construct the UnLimbited arm. To say it’s snug is an understatement.

Because of what I do in my shed I recently won the Workshop category for Channel 4’s Shed of the Year. This is where Steve Hayden of Apex Timber building's saw what we do, and almost immediately after the program aired called me and said he just felt that he had to help. Apex Timber Building’s hand make custom timber buildings to the exact size, shape or style, out of quality timber with longevity in mind.

So, this weekend Steve and his team (who gave up their weekends for free) travelled six hours and arrived at my home to build me a custom workshop completely free. They arrived wearing Santa hats and in merry spirits. We had a great day filled with great conversation and laughter.

I have been brought to tears by the overwhelming outpouring of support and generosity of this amazing company, and now that the workshop has been built, I have been impressed at the quality, speed and professionalism with which they executed the build.

I am at a total loss for words at how incredibly grateful and humble I feel at such generosity. I think if I said it a million times it would never be enough. Thank you.

Please support and show them your love, for a company that selflessly just wanted to help. Needless to say we will stay in contact and will hopefully remain friends for years to come.
