Traditional Green Oak Timber Framing

We specialise in the design, construction and erection of traditionally jointed and pegged structural green oak timber framed buildings. Our timber frames are each individually designed and hand built by our small team of specialist timber frame carpenters in our workshop at Bere Alston near Tavistock in West Devon.

Each of our timber frames is absolutely unique and made with an individual attention to detail. Traditional heavy structural timber framing is an extremely versatile method of construction and the technique can be used to build anything from beautiful, durable, energy efficient houses and characterful extensions, to porches, garden houses, garden offices and conservatories, garages, garden buildings, granny annexes, gazebos and pergolas, playground shelters or heavy oak trusses.

Double Glazed Timber Windows & Doors and Bespoke Joinery

We make traditional and high performance timber windows, doors, entrance gates and bespoke joinery from local sustainably grown English timber. We also use composite engineered timber, softwoods or other hardwoods.We are very proud of our repuation for attention to detail and our use of only the best quality carefully selected prime joinery grade timber in our joinery products. We have recently installed a new paint spraying facility and we are now able to offer a full factory finish of paint or stain on our doors and windows.
