Recent work update - Oak framed building throughout Cornwall

This website is perhaps the most neglected part of our operation, but when the phone keeps ringing and the jobs keep coming, regular blog updates and website management become less of a priority. That said, I'm always keen to make sure our recent work is out there, available to view, and hopefully inspire anyone who's interested in oak framed building.

Here's a quick snap shot of some, but not all, of the jobs we've been working on over the last 6 months. All shapes and sizes, but no 2 identical; each one designed and built by us to meet the needs of the particular project. Lastly there's a glimpse into the future with a CAD drawing of the big summer project starting in a few weeks.

This 3D model shows a frame I've designed to meet an architect's design for a new build property on the western edges of Dartmoor. It'll be among the biggest of the projects we've tackled, but is well within our capabilities. As usual, we'll cut the oak frame in our Falmouth workshop, and then transport it to site before a week long raising in early Autumn. That feels like a long way away yet, but the oak arrives next week, so it won't be long before we're getting our teeth into it.

  1. I loved the wood frame and the house structures. I love your 3D model approach. This would have been very helpful and saved much of the efforts
