We are SJL Carpentry and Design Ltd based in East Sussex. At SJL we offer a full range of carpentry and construction options.

Our company has a network of reliable and highly trained tradesmen covering all aspects of plumbing, electrics, tiling, plastering and bricklaying. We are here to ensure that your project runs smoothly from inception to its final stages, liaising along the way with building control, structural engineers and architects.


SJL Ltd started out as a carpentry design business and we still pride ourselves in designing, fabricating and installing bespoke carpentry in any style that you may require. Director Sam Leppard still oversees all of the carpentry design and joinery fabrication personally, ensuring that each project is delivered to his exacting standards.

Contact us to discuss your bespoke requirement. We can help you develop your ideas and guide you through the design process, delivering you carpentry of the highest quality.


Syncronising the broad span of elements involved in a building project is essential if budgets and schedules are to be adhered to. Poorly planned and badly managed projects can quickly become financially unviable and grind to a halt.

SJL can manage your project from design and conception through planning and building to completion. We have successfully delivered projects for many different clients, but don’t just take our word for it…

SJL can provide a full range of services including complete project management through to working as a sub contractor for smaller scale projects.

Our partner company South Downs Joinery offer bespoke joinery, and together we have worked for many commercial clients, to name a few; Hotel Du Vin, De’Vere Hotel Group, Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, NHS Trust, Age U.K and Mitchell and Butler.


“Sam did a brilliant job fitting our new kitchen and hanging all new doors throughout our house. He was very polite, always on time and cleared up at the end of each day. He has done everything that we asked for and we couldn’t be happier. We will be using Sam again and would recommend him!”
