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.

I would work with Carpenter Oak Cornwall again without a doubt. On design they were fantastic, they delivered everything when they said they would and it was astonishing how quickly the frame went up. Tim and the guys were great– really dedicated despite heavy rain when they put the frame up, but they turned it round in four days. They were fantastic.
I would like to thank you and all your team for the wonderful oak frame extension which you have made for me.
Every member of your team with whom I have contact has been positive, helpful and enthusiastic – exactly what a novice like myself needs when making such life-changing decisions. The day the frame was erected will always stand out in my memory.
I cannot thank you and your team enough.
Thank you Tim, Jamie and Ben. You worked your socks off and it looks amazing. Great professionalism, skill and attitude. Exactly what we wanted, Thank you.
Really good work for its own sake, that’s what craftsmanship is.
