We’re happy working on a case-by-case basis, varying our involvement as per your requirements. Generally speaking, we can offer any of the following options:
From beginning to end: We will design the structure with you (in conjunction with your architect if desired) and produce detailed designs which can be used in a planning application if required.
From these designs we create the components at our workshop, install the frame on site and continue with the build finishing it as required.
Beginning to middle: We will design the structure with you, create the components at our workshop and install the frame on site. From there it's up to you to follow the designs we have already worked out
Frame Kit only
Beginning: We will design the structure with you (or from our existing designs) and create the components at our workshop. We can then arrange delivery or you can collect them to install yourself. Please note that a fair degree of building know-how and equipment will be needed for this option.
The starting point is a Larch log of between 150 mm-300 mm diameter and up to 7 metres long. We can select uniform straight logs or ones with 'movement' depending on the look and structural properties required.
This can then be stripped of the bark using a high pressure water jet.
notches and flats can be cut at any angle and holes drilled with great accuracy, Its not just round wood but any shape you could wish for. The key concept is the highly accurate machining of a natural material so that it can be used in conjunction with modern building materials in any environment.
Why Round wood?
