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, a complete build 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.
As well as designing and raising frames, we also offer a complete build or ‘turnkey’ service, allowing you to leave every stage of the process to us, from original concept through to a finished home.
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.

I just wanted to say a big thank you, the frame looks absolutely stunning! But just as importantly, Alan and the team did a fantastic job last week and were a pleasure to work with! They were very professional, diligent and thorough throughout the whole process of getting the frames up - I hope they’re not all too broken this morning!

Firstly thank you to you and all the team for a stunning top floor and stair addition, it has indeed been a total pleasure working together.

Other framers said it couldn’t be done, you have created a fantastic and beautiful space that has transformed our house. Professional, encouraging and helpful; the onsite boys were friendly, polite, cheerful and most importantly clean and tidy ensuring we didn’t miss any of the photo opportunities requested as the build developed. The tricky levels and the joining of two buildings that were not parallel foxed some, but not Carpenter Oak… thank you so much.
Roger and Suzie, Clients
The construction of the crossbow would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work shown by you and your team; we very much appreciate the commitment you have all shown over the past six months.
