Solid Oak Roof Trusses

Traditional Structural Oak Frames, Bespoke Designs, By Interesting Timbers

Bespoke Oak Structural Frames & Douglas Fir Structural Frames by Interesting Timbers

For more than 33 years we have specialised in bespoke, individual projects for clients, all our structural frames are designed exclusively by David B.Eng. Over 186 Bespoke Structural Oak Frames, including an Oak Framed Roof for our own home, have been individually designed and made for clients across the South West of England as well as one or two further afield in Scotland (this includes our own self-build project featuring an Oak Framed Roof: self-designed, self-manufactured, roof completed in August 2015 and featured in our Self Build Photo Gallery)

We Design and Make Bespoke Oak and Douglas Fir 'Structural Frames' and supply them 'as a kit of parts' (under the terms stipulated by our insurer) for you, your carpenter, builder or architect to install on site.

Some sections may be delivered pre-assembled; you or your builder can just crane them into position on site. We can quote for delivery to site. We are happy to supply structural frames to self –builders who are managing their own projects, Building Contractors and Architects as well as Property Developers. We can provide drawings for Building Control on our designs.

We can give an 'initial estimate' for the work from your drawings or even from your simple sketches. There is no charge for this estimating work  if you visit us by appointment at our office or provide us with a copy of your drawings. If this estimate is acceptable and you wish to proceed to the next stage with your project David can then spend the necessary design time required for quoting purposes.

We can design and make Oak and Douglas Fir  structural frames for buildings from a simple porch to a complete home.  Oak roof trusses for barn conversions or for new buildings.

All our frames are designed exclusively for your individual project by David at our Emborough Sawmill (david@interestingtimbers.co.uk)
