Commercial heritage timber frame

We are pioneers of structural timber restoration across the UK and have been for over 30 years. Developing innovative techniques to lead the way in commercial heritage timber frame projects. We have evolved barns, listed buildings and even a site of Nissan huts originating from a Second World War USAF airbase in East Anglia. The heritage that the land and buildings rest on are considered as important as our own heritage.

The Carpenter Oak team have built oak framed homes, schools, chapels, offices, museums, theatres… In doing so we have realised dreams, and brought to life the heritage timber frame buildings restoring fantastic timber buildings.

We relish the adventure of bringing alive exceptional design every time - from the smallest frame to the most passionate renovation or restoration of a commercial heritage timber frame.

Timber framing continues to gain popularity as attractive build options. A marriage of design, exquisite materials and skilled carpentry mean that there is no need to compromise in terms of energy efficiency, comfort or style.

Bring your vision to the table and we will place the tools of today, underpinned by thousands of years of history, at your service. Each project we have undertaken over the last three decades has been a showcase of great design and skill.

A piece of history in every build

From earliest times, humans have used timber to create shelter. The Romans first developed what we know today as timber framing. It has changed and adapted in the millennia since. Thanks to the durability of hardwoods, many timber framed buildings have stood the test of time.

The advent of oak barn conversions, home design on TV, and artisan craft have refreshed our national appetite for what wood can do. 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.

30 years of creativity and innovation, always forward facing and sector-leading

We have been dedicated to delivering visionary heritage timber frame buildings since 1987. As pioneers of exceptional timber engineering, you can find the work of Carpenter Oak in buildings across the UK and overseas.

The original team of owners championed design and craft across timber construction. In 2016, they reunited after a period of independent development, and continue to put professional creativity at the heart of this vibrant company.

With a uniquely skilled team unmatched in the sector, Carpenter Oak started the journey to employee-ownership in 2017. This means that employees have an increasing role in how the company is developed in the future.
