Space, light, comfort… our timber-frame homes are beautiful
Due to the popularity of our timber buildings, we also design and manufacture timber-frame houses. We have a unique position in the market as one of the leading installers of timber buildings, meaning we also have excellent buying power. This means two key things for you: better quality and better prices.
We can talk to you about timber-frame houses at any stage of the process, but clients generally approach us to move ahead with a project once an architect has drawn up plans and they have secured planning permission. We have in-house structural engineers who will prepare drawings and calculations, ensuring your building will be compliant with your planning consent. Our in-house erection team can then get to work on the build, which will usually only take a week or two. We will discuss all timescales with you when we first talk about your designs.

A dedicated design process
A timber-frame building is your home, a place to live and work, so it has to be right for you. We work in close consultation with you on your designs, ensuring your home will contain everything you want and need. You always sign off designs before we get to work, giving you complete peace of mind. Our in-house CAD designers make sure your home meets your requirements and aspirations on paper, before moving on to creating it in the flesh.

The benefits of
- A beautiful outlook. High ceilings, exposed beams, an open-plan environment…timber frame houses really are beautiful. They offer you a wonderful way of life.
- Easy fit-out process. With a timber-frame construction, it is very easy to install plumbing and electrics after the frame has been erected, making the process simpler.
- Quick construction. It usually only takes a week or two to get your timber frame in place. It is left wrapped and watertight, so windows, doors and roofs can be installed.
- A choice of cladding. You can choose the cladding that suits you in terms of aesthetics and insulation – there is a choice of solid wood or fibre cement.
- The option of oak. We have a dedicated oak joinery workshop and can incorporate oak into your design, giving your structure a quintessentially English feel.
