Process & Design

Just as with the applications for oak framing, the designs of these buildings are immensely wide ranging.

There are many different oak truss styles with impressive spans and intricate detailing, beautifully sweeping curved timbers, both robust and elegant forms and limitless shapes and sizes.

We provide a complete design and advice service covering every aspect of oak frame construction, from foundations to oak frame design, frame finishes to external cladding and we are keen to get involved from the earliest of stages of a project. We are happy to work with chosen architects and engineers or can recommend several with whom we have worked alongside on previous builds, who are experienced and well versed on green oak construction and timber buildings in general and can help to push your project through warrant and planning stages.

By using design software we can produce full working drawings and 3D models to aid a quick transfer of information and ideas that are so often key to a successful build. This also allows us to give our clients realistic representations of how their oak frame will ultimately appear and the wide range of stunning design and detailing options available to them.
