Cornish Oak Timber Frames

Hand crafted, bespoke timber frames, created for Cornwall.

In 2014 the longstanding timber framing company, Carpenter Oak, wanted to offer Cornwall the same quality craftsmanship and personal service that they are internationally known for, minus all the travelling and with better pasties.

So Carpenter Oak Cornwall was created…

“Due to the nature of the work that we do, being local to a project has huge advantages. Each job is different so every design and detail has to be thought through by both our designer and head carpenter. Some oak timber frame projects require multiple site visits throughout the build, and so it is of great benefit that we can be available for these. This helps each individual job to run as smoothly as possible.”

Tim Simpson, Project Manager at Carpenter Oak Cornwall

Coming from a well established timber framing company we have years of timber framing experience, which is now combined with a passion for being and building in Cornwall. Our company revolves around our highly skilled team of carpenters, frame designers and glaziers. Based in Lelant, near St Ives, we know and love the Cornish lifestyle (spot us on a wave near you!). Our love of being in Cornwall is reflected in our passion for building there, and we are proud to make great spaces that use timber frames to adapt and build beautiful places that complement the Cornish lifestyle.

The versatility and sustainability of building in oak is perfectly suited to a county that prides itself on mixing tradition with forward thinking. From light filled oak extensions to sea side timber framed homes and even a converted shipping container we use as our office!  Take a look at our Cornish case studies to inspire your timber frame project.

Have an idea? Talk to us about it, we want to know your thoughts! Our approach will be as individual as your project, so whatever stage you are at speak to us about it.
