Ecochoice supplies oak timber frame solutions for a wide variety of projects.
Oak beams are usually supplied as green (fresh sawn) and expert builders create precision joints to form the frame. Once locked in place, hardwood oak timber frames will slowly lose moisture and develop cracks, splits and shakes as they become increasingly hard.
For restoration work, it is important to work only with well seasoned (air-dried) oak beams and frames, since the building can no longer handle the movement and twisting of the hardwood as it seasons.
Ecochoice is a reputable timber frame supplier and can deliver custom-cut hardwood oak timber frames for a range of builds. Sawn beams can be sent to a framer, or the finished beams can be provided as a kit according to drawings and supplied directly to site.
