We use traditional timber framing techniques and sustainably sourced oak, Douglas fir, larch and glulam to make unique oak framed buildings in Cornwall and beyond. We believe in quality craftsmanship that will stand the test of time and designs that will excite and adapt with you. We make frames that act as the heart of a building, so we work closely with you to create an individual frame that is tailored to your needs. Our oak framed buildings can be found in many shapes and sizes all over the country, but no matter the size they all share the same level of high quality craftsmanship that Carpenter Oak Cornwall is renowned for.
Working locally in Cornwall as a small, multi-skilled team we can offer a personal service that adapts to the needs of your timber frame project. Being in Cornwall allows us to respond easily to your project, from the initial enquiry to raising the frame we can move quickly and efficiently through the different steps towards creating your timber frame building.
We have years of experience in timber framing and general building, so right from the start of your beginning idea we can offer advice and solutions for the next step. We are always open to enquiries, and we like a challenge, so if you are wondering if we can do something then call us to hear what we might be able to do for you.
Our in house frame designer Tom Jubb has many years of experience working with Carpenter Oak and Carpenter Oak Cornwall on numerous build projects of all shapes and sizes which involve the use of a structural timber frame system.
Mostly (though not always) we would recommend the use of an architect. This can be someone we’ve worked with before and can recommend, or equally Tom can work with an architect you already know. We also know general build contractors, and a whole range of other trades and suppliers through out Cornwall.
We can project manage your timber frame build, giving you one consistent point of contact and saving you the time and effort spent dealing with multiple contractors.
We also offer a complete build service (turnkey) which draws on our knowledge, experience, and trusted local contacts. Right from the start we can co- ordinate your project ensuring that the same high standards found in our frames is consistent throughout all of your build. Talk to us about the level of involvement you want in your project.
Our guaranteed system of applied glazing is designed as an integral part of our timber frame package. Glazing allows the ability to have ‘frameless’ windows, thereby increasing the size and aperture of the window and maximising the view.Key advantages to our glazing services :
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are formed of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two layers of board, typically OSB (orientated strand board). These can be used for walls, floors and roofs. They are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly all building designs. We work with our trusted S.I.P.S partners for the construction and installation of them.
This is just one of the options for wrapping your timber frame, we can help you choose the system most appropriate to your frame.
