Our History

Willowtree Cottage Timber Products was established in 2009 by husband and wife team ‘Derek and Ciara Tiernan’, it is a family run rural business. 

In the early years at Willowtree designed, manufactured and retailed a large range of high quality timber products namely Chicken Coops, which were very popular throughout Ireland and the UK. 

 In 2016 with ever increasing prices of raw materials and transportation cost surging it was no longer cost effective to manufacture. It was decided to put the business on hold while raising our young family until a new inspirational idea was born.
