Conal Downey and his wife Lorraine have lived and worked in the Sutherland Shire for 25 years.
Lorraine was already running the well-known Patchwork Plus at Miranda when twenty years ago Conal decided to finally take the plunge, leave the corporate world, and follow his dream of creating fine woodwork.
He began manufacturing shutters in a local factory. In those days they were all Western Red Cedar and if you drive around the Shire, some of them can still be seen gracing homes today. However, when Chinese product began to swamp the market about 10 years ago, it became difficult to compete and Conal decided to cease manufacturing and instead source better quality product locally and overseas so that he could continue to provide quality shutters at a competitive price.
Although he no longer manufactures, nonetheless he has never lost his love for woodworking and you can see this in the way he fits all his shutters. He ensures the finished job not only looks good but continues to perform, trouble free, for years to come. To ensure it does, he offers a free maintenance check on all new shutters after 12 months.
