Welcome to our website, which we hope you will find both informative and inspiring.

We are a family-run business based near Duns in the beautiful Scottish Borders. Originally called John O’Kane Stone Restoration, the company has expanded over the years. It was a logical progression from restoring and creating stone fireplaces to offering a qualified solid fuel installation service as well.

Our services now include:

  1. Building, repairing and restoring stonework indoors and outside
  2. Installing fireplaces and woodburning/multifuel stoves
  3. Chimney works, such as opening up and lining old chimneys, repairing stacks

We work on both sides of the border in Scotland and England, with clients throughout the Borders, East Lothian and Northumberland.

Experience and Accreditation

As well as having lots of experience in the work we do, the company is also registered with HETAS, the official body that approves solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services.

Using a HETAS-registered engineer:

• Gives you the peace of mind of knowing their work complies with building regulations and is done to a safe standard

• May reduce the paperwork required by local authorities for your home improvements (this varies between England and Scotland)

• Could save you money.
