Oak Framed Construction

There is a timeless and rustic elegance to oak-framed buildings that creates a wonderful connection between a building and nature. As the wood ages, it adds rich character, which not only elevates your experience of the building but adds real value for future resale.

Form and function
Oak framing not only looks fabulous, but the wood also has real heat retention qualities enabling you to choose elegance and practicality with no compromise.

Sourcing the finest quality oak
For sustainability, we source the best quality French oak where a project is specified in oak. It has unrivalled strength, character and beauty and brings a certain gravitas to every project it is used on. Did you know that oak framing is so robust, it can actually replace structural steels?

English oak is fantastic wood too, but with so many tree preservation orders on oak trees in the UK, it is not practical for most building work. The French oak is sustainably grown and managed and is of equal quality.

If you would like English oak specified, no problem. Just let us know when we discuss your project.

Design and build

We offer a turnkey design and build service or can work with drawings and plans supplied by your architects.

We have vast experience building bespoke timber-frame extensions and renovations and can guide at every stage of the process, from the initial vision, design, planning and installation.


The quality of the work is paramount to us.

Perfectionists and passionate about beautiful timber-framed structures, we build with a tolerance of just 2ml.

The industry standard in timber frame building is a tolerance of 10ml.
