Creating timber framed buildings is the core of our business; it is also our passion. We offer a complete timber framing service from design through construction to the final raising of the timber frame. Here's how we work:
We offer a comprehensive design service to help get your timber frame project off to a good start. We can either design the whole project in house or we can work with your existing architects, structural engineers and builders. We have a comprehensive knowledge of traditional timber framing and contemporary building techniques and understand how to produce designs that work with the most modern and the most ancient of building materials.
Our timber frames are prepared at our workshops and timber yard at Holcombe Rogus near Wellington in Somerset. Having a covered yard means that the heavy oak carpentry can continue whatever the weather. This is where our team of highly skilled joiners work to assemble your timber frame, marking and cutting the beams and complex joints.
Seeing a timber frame being raised is a beautiful sight. Watching our skilled craftsmen assemble and raise a timber frame from the ground up is a most captivating experience. Timber framed buildings like these have been raised by mankind for thousands of years and once raised a timber framed structured will likely be there for thousands of years in to the future.
One of the great things about timber frame buildings is that you create spaces between the frames that can frame windows and doors. Timber Structures offer a timber frame glazing service and can supply and install double sealed glazing units for the timber frame projects that we build. This glazing can be achieved through direct glazing whereby the glass panels are fitted directly to the frame or through the use of normal doors and windows fitted in the conventional way.
There are many factors to be considered when choosing the right timber for a project. The look and feel of the timber, the cost and availability, and its structural properties.
