Larch Timber Frame

Larch Timber Frame or external cladding?

Larch is a versatile timber that works well in exterior structures and cladding as its resin content naturally protects it from decay.  Whilst larch is a softwood, it is renowned for its durability.  Larch brings character to patios, porches and balconies, as well as building finishes such as cladding.

Larch blends particularly well with Douglas fir.  These two timbers form a natural partnership for projects where timber design is key to indoor and outdoor spaces. Not commonly found in large timber frame structures compared to a dense wood like Oak, there are examples of smaller frames in construction.

Often used for doors and finishes like cladding, Larch is often used for yacht building and joinery too. A fine choice for flooring because it has a nice machined surface with a fine grain finish, and due to the light yellowy color it can be stained easily.

Modern timber engineering techniques allow seamless integration of different timbers to create a complimentary feel from the interior to the exterior, we can design a palette of materials that work effectively with a timber frame project.

We can provide Standard Detailing on any project, to ensure seamless integration of your chosen materials and design into the build process. These can form part of a construction drawing set or be made available to assist the project architect.

Since 1987, we’ve been involved in some of the most challenging timber-framed buildings in the UK and overseas. Collaborating with our clients, architects, engineers and designers, our expert knowledge and skill has led to many award-winning projects that feature a Carpenter Oak frame, including multiple regional and national RIBA Awards, three consecutive Build It Awards for Best Oak Frame and the Stirling Prize.
