We have two new case studies that showcase the diversity of oak timber framing. The first project is a large extension to the ancient Hexham Abbey. Located in Northumberland parts of this Abbey were built in 674AD and we were asked to create an extension that was sympathetic to the existing historic building. Read here about Paul Slemming’s frame design for the extension, which was inspired by an ancient archway in the Abbey.

Our second case study is a new build home in Surrey that uses an oak glulam frame to marry together traditional timber framing techniques with cutting edge materials. Read about the oak glulam home here and see the diversity that is possible when using an oak timber frame.
