Over fifty years combined experience in the timber framed building industry.

We’re proud to offer bespoke design and construction of everything from large swimming pool halls with extensive uninterrupted spans, to private houses, garden offices and small extensions. From projects with the highest PassivHaus standards and negative carbon insulation to simple garages, every project is made from responsibly sourced FSC timber.

Our passion and commitment for sustainability with a holistic approach means from concept stage to the last nail your project will have minimal environmental impact while being both on schedule and within budget.


Why choose a traditional timber framed building method?

Their comparatively lightweight nature means timber framed buildings can generally afford to use significantly reduced foundations over brick. Taking into account their off-site pre fabricated construction, it’s fair to say that timber framed buildings are both faster and cheaper to build too.Being naturally better insulated than brick means they’re warm in winter and cool in summer. This is obviously good news for both your heating bill and the environment at the same time. While on the subject of sustainability it’s good to know that the average timber frame house built saves around four tonnes of CO2 over a brick built house of the same size.
