The Timber Frame Company specialises in the design and production of heavy structural timber frame buildings in oak or Douglas fir. We have worked on a wide variety of buildings including oak framed houses and oak framed extensions, eco-cabins in the woods and even a spire at Wells Cathedral!
We are based in Somerset and value working both directly with clients, or among other professionals as part of a wider design team.
We are leading experts in our field and have a wealth of experience that is hard to rival. Alongside a thorough knowledge of traditional and modern heavy structural timber frame design we have also innovated techniques and processes which have been implemented across our industry.
Our oak and Douglas fir frames are designed with state-of-the-art CAD software and incorporate appropriate traditional joinery, contemporary techniques and materials that comply with modern building standards.
Our oak frame buildings are prepared by teams of skilled craftsmen who mark out and cut all the joints by hand. The team that we select to cut your frame, will raise it on site. Where appropriate we may opt for a frame to be machine cut and finished by hand.
We currently source UK timber for the majority of our frames and support the Forestry Stewardship Council scheme by using accredited oak, larch & Douglas fir from sustainable sources wherever possible. To ensure that we always purchase and select the best possible timbers for each element, we maintain long standing relationships with our suppliers and we have a qualified timber grader on our staff.
Our portfolio is very wide and includes: oak frame houses, oak framed extensions, sustainable houses incorporating Douglas Fir or larch, post and beam timber frames, oak frame swimming pools, commercial timber frame buildings, and contemporary timber frames for commercial and domestic projects nationwide.
