Interview with Tim

  • Favourite project in Cornwall?

  • Building Ponsanooth Chapel roof, as it was such a large span on a historic Cornish building- and it's always nice to work with Douglas fir as well as oak. I also enjoyed a small glazed extension in Budock Water, as it was our first job from the Cornwall yard.
  • What do you enjoy doing in Cornwall?

  • I love to get in the sea at Porthmeor or Godrevy if the surf is any good, and spend my time with my wife and kids on the beach.
  • Top tip for Cornwall?

  • Visit Porthleven for an evening, or enjoy a pint at the Tinner's Arms beer garden in Zennor on a sunny afternoon.


I am lucky enough to do the job that I love in the place that I love. We have a workshop near St. Ives which is where I live now with my family. I am able to bring the art of timber framing to sunny Cornwall where I teach others the skills that I have learnt. I also have experience in the building trade as I worked in construction for 4 years in Plymouth. I am enjoying living back in my home town with my wife and children. Oh yes.....and the surfing is free!! Tim has just completed a transformational oak frame extension on his house, see it here.
