About us

Welcome to Carpenter Oak.

We combine technical design, master craftsmanship and exquisite materials to create stunning spaces.

We pioneered the use of structural timber for sympathetic restoration across the UK and for over 30 years we have continued to develop innovative techniques to lead the way in the timber framing industry.

Oak framing, timber engineering and integrated glazing are now firmly in the repertoire of the modern architect. This has also enabled a new generation of self-builders to follow their dreams.

A family of inventors, visionaries and exemplary makers; we are Carpenter Oak.


Making dreams a reality since 1987, Carpenter Oak Ltd are award-winning specialists in the design, construction and raising of timber framed structures. Whether you are looking to create a bespoke oak framed house, extension or outbuilding or perhaps a public or commercial timber framed building, Carpenter Oak Ltd has the experience and dedication to make your ambitions come alive.

Our dedicated and professional team of Project Managers, Frame designers and Carpenters are as passionate about your creation as you are. We work closely with you and a range of industry-leading architects and specialists to deliver a wide variety of bespoke projects across the UK, Europe and beyond.  Look no further if you want to know how to build a timber frame house – we offer support and advice throughout the whole process.

We celebrate the beauty and joy of timber frames in many different styles and raise over 50 frames a year.

We love wood, we love design, and we love a challenge.
