Timber Frames 

We work primarily in oak due to its longevity and sustainability. We take lessons from history in order to realise your creation.


Design Service  

We offer a comprehensive design service for your build. If your project needs to be submitted by an architect to meet planning requirements, we can arrange this for you. We work closely with you to understand your unique needs and personality in order to create a building that truly works for you.


Eco Builds           

If you are planning an eco build then we would love to hear from you! In the UK there are examples of timber framing that are nearly 1000 years old. An oak timber frame is built to last generations: you will be creating the historical architecture of tomorrow. We can work as a main contractor to co-ordinate other eco suppliers and artisans for your build, from hemp-lime to solar panel installation.


Main Contractor              

If you would like to base your project around an oak frame, we can organise and co-ordinate the other tradesmen to ensure that your build happens efficiently and smoothly, based on your budget.


Historical Building Surveys            

Mike has an MSc in Timber Building Conservation (University of York) and spent a year in China lecturing in Beijing Universities (he lectured in English but he does also write and speak fluent Mandarin!). If you own an old building and would like to know more about it and how to best take care of it, Mike can provide a comprehensive historical survey of your property.
