Are you looking for a timber kit for your new build/extension and trying to source a manufacturer in Scotland?
Choosing timber frame for the structure will allow for a quick build-time with a weatherproof and secure structure in place much faster than other construction methods.
Timber is an environmentally friendly material with excellent insulation properties meaning your new extension will not only be eco-friendly, but super energy efficient.
Timber frame extensions can be added to almost any type of house and the external finish can be selected and applied to either suit your existing home, or with a contrasting finish to really stand out.
We have included below some of the different styles and external finishes our previous clients have chosen for their extensions.

How Can We Help
We can work with you to build your new extension in a variety of ways…
- We can provide a complete design and build service looking after all aspects of the architecture and construction depending upon your location in the UK.

Why Should You Go With A Timber Frame Extension
Build time is vastly reduced and more importantly works can be carried out whatever the season.
In any building project speed is of the essence and prolonged disruption is not welcome in any circumstance.
The main shell of the extension is erected in days meaning the internal works can commence immediately, in the dry.
Your site will stay in good order and not have to suffer the traditional wet trades and piles of materials stacked on the property, sometimes for weeks, due to inclement weather.
The timber frame method makes managing your project much easier and allows you to start creating your home as soon as it is erected.
You can be as involved as much as you wish and can make good savings throughout by contributing management of subcontract labour or skills.
Your timber frame structure can be produced in any style and will blend harmoniously with your existing home whether it be brick finish, render or wood.
The energy efficiency of your new extension will amaze you making it the perfect addition to your home.
