We utilise a variety of timber framing joinery depending on budget and building style. This includes traditional scribe-rule timber framing with more straight forward bolted stick-framing. Our buildings are often made from high-grade local dougls fir, but can be of western red cedar, oak, larch or scotts pine. 

Timber Framed

Sustainable . Versatile .  Durable

Timber-framed buildings can be quicker to construct than other building methods. The fabrication of timber framing components can speed up the construction process, reducing labour costs and allowing the building to be completed more quickly.

This can be using green oak or softwood sawn timber or roundwood framing using traditional joinery.

What are the benefits of timber framed building?

  • Sustainability: Timber is a renewable resource, we source British timber from responsibly managed forests. Compared to other building materials such as concrete and steel, timber has a lower carbon footprint and requires less energy to produce. Timber-framed buildings can also be more energy-efficient, which can help to reduce overall carbon emissions.

  • Aesthetics: Timber-framed buildings can offer a unique and attractive aesthetic that can complement a range of architectural styles. The natural beauty of wood can add warmth and character to a building, and timber can be finished in a range of colors and finishes to suit individual preferences.

  • Durability: Timber-framed buildings can be highly durable and long-lasting if constructed properly. Timber is a strong and resilient material that can withstand the elements and resist decay and rot if properly treated and maintained.

Do timber framed homes or spapces require planning consent?

In the United Kingdom, timber-framed homes are subject to the same planning regulations as other types of homes. In general, planning consent is required for most new building projects, including timber-framed homes, unless the project falls within certain exemptions.

The exact requirements for planning consent can vary depending on a range of factors, such as the size and location of the proposed building, the impact it may have on the surrounding environment and community, and the local planning policies and regulations in place.

In some cases, timber-framed homes may be subject to additional planning requirements, such as those related to sustainability and energy efficiency. For example, local planning authorities may require new homes to meet certain standards for insulation, heating, and ventilation in order to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability.
