Thanks for stopping by House of Tierney.

I am the owner, Katherine Tierney.

I'm a woodworker based on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. I started woodworking as a hobby which weirdly helped with a chronic migraine condition I have had since 2020. For those unaware chronic migraine means having a migraine for at least 15 days out of every month. It's brutal, and sadly, pretty common especially for women in their 30s, 40s and 50s. 

Starting out with woodworking I was appalled at how much brand new and good quality second hand timber was being thrown into landfill. I love timber, there are so many different species and textures and grain and smells and it's an incredible resource...and it's just being wasted.

So my mission at House of Tierney is to use only reclaimed timber and if you decided to follow me around you would see me stopping a lot at skip bins and hunting around for timber. It's an absolute crime to see beautiful timber being thrown out. A beautiful tree was cut down to make the timber, let's give it a second life.

Every purchase you make from House of Tierney takes timber out of landfill. I make all my products by hand, they are strong and will last to pass down to your children's children.
