As well as offering a whole range of timber frames, and components, meticulously set out and hand cut, pre-assembled,
delivered to your site & raised.
We can also offer a self build service. We will construct the frame/component at our yard, again pre-assembled to
ensure a trouble free frame raising on
site. The only difference is, the client assembles the frame themselves. All the frames are individually labeled, and marked, so
no two timbers are the the same. We supply a assembly schedule, and working drawing, setting out the order of construction from the
first soul plate, down to the last rafter! Over the years it has surprised us the diverse mix of people prepared to erect there
own frame, ranging from builders, to DIY enthusiasts the occasional retirement couple!
It has to be said that erecting your own green Oak frame can offer a great sense of achievement, and fulfillment, especially when you have been involved with the project all the way through, from initial conception, design, planning and foundation to frame erection, not forgetting the added benefit of no assembly charges! (which can potentially save most clients a significant amount, especially self-build projects on a tight budgets.) We can supply you with all the components, and fixings in flat pack form for virtually any building. This method of assembly is not for the faint hearted, and should not be embarked upon lightly. These timbers by there nature are very heavy and dangerous,especiallyinexperienced hands as is the vast amount of any heavy timber frame project.
If, however, taking advantage of
the a self assembly package is for you, then we will fully support you via telephone support & e-mail (On largerself assembled projects we still recommend the
attendance of at least one, company member, to over see
the frame erection, especially if a crane is
involved.It is not uncommon for some oak frames to contain several hundred components, through to a couple of thousand
plus, on the very largest.
We are very happy to address all the questions or queries, so please feel free to call, or e-mail us with your requirements.
If you already have approved plans, and require a quote, then please forward them to us for pricing and evaluation. We look forward to meeting you!.

Your incrediblely courteus manner and easy going nature have enable me to be more thankful to you than I can possibly write - you are a credit to your profession and to the building trade generally - if only they were all like you???
Huge thanks again and have no fear - if I hear so much as a whisper of anyone wanting similar services; I will pass them over to you in a shot.
