ABOUT US

Did you know that our family business originated over 130 years ago here in the very same spot?

EWB Cotton was a family-run timber merchant here in Barrow-In-Furness ran by Teddy Cotton and his father. Over the decades it slowly changed hands and our owner, Steve Heavyside, took over it solely 38 years ago, now proudly known as Classic Homes by EWB Cotton Limited.

Joined by his wife, Tricia, they have taken it from strength to strength. Being joined by all three of their children. Starting with their eldest son, James, from school and putting him through his joinery trade. Eventually offering Kitchens and Fitted Bedrooms, learning the roles of design and installation. Their middle child, Lois, joined some 18 years ago launching an online appliance store which was gradually superseded by her love of design. Finally, their youngest son, Will, joined over 15 years ago and learnt his role alongside his brother eventually adding his own personality.

FAMILY RUN FOR OVER 40 YEARS

Today, when you visit our showroom you will meet Steve, Lois, Tori, Kat and although Tricia is now retired (lucky lady!) she still assists in the showroom every now and again. Did we mention Will and Tori are married!

Our showrooms offer lots of inspiration, Lois & Tori are full of great ideas when working on your bespoke design. And our installers are conscientious when working in your home and take great pride in the finished look of every room.
