Created by a company with a solid background in Timber Frame

We developed our post and beam system in response to the increasing number of requests being received for self build timber frame GaragesCarportsBalconies etc.. that allowed for:

  • Greater flexibility in spans between posts
  • Clear ground floor space beneath Rooms in the Roof
  • Different timber types.

The system incorporates innovative modular connections that allows easy building with solid beams from an extensive array of beautiful wood types. All cut to precision to ensure a perfect fit, which brings a further element to traditional style post & Beam construction.

Self Assembly structures are no longer restricted to Glue Laminated (Glulam) timber. All the flexibility, durability and ease of build are present, but without the need for intrusive extra supports, pin components or dependence on only one type of material.
