Self-build timber frame homes

Bartram have a wealth of experience spanning 25 years working with timber. We offer a bespoke design and manufacture service where we’ll carefully craft your own design ideas or adapt designs prepared by architects. And, of course, we will offer advice and guidance throughout the process of building your dream timber frame home. We’ll work in partnership – it means as much to us as it does to you.

“Talking to clients about their ideas for building their own timber frame home is a real privilege. I love to understand what the most important part of a design for a project is and to help people turn it into reality. This can be advising on designs, talking through choices of timber or organising installation. We love to have clients here on site too – they can see their home being carefully crafted right in front of them.”

A bespoke timber frame home from start to finish

We design

We would love to help you with your initial design concepts. You will probably have an idea of what you want and may even have existing architectural plans but if you need help in the early design stage, this is exactly what we are here for. Our experienced consultants can guide you through the design process and advise you of key factors to consider at the design stage saving you time, money and importantly, creating a timber frame home of your dreams.

We craft

From single story timber extensions and single house builds through to large scale developments we offer bespoke tailor-made solutions. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing process means that we are confident of supplying your timber frame whatever the design. Why not put us to the test?

We complete

Bartram can assist with the build of any timber frame project. Our expert qualified team and partners can erect and complete your structure to the high standards of construction as set out by the Structural Timber Association.
