Timber framed solutions for a stylish contemporary home

Castle Ring Oak Frame was delighted to be appointed by C B Architects Ltd to supply the green oak features to a stunning new build home on the Isle of Wight. Our oak work for this inspiring project consisted of a series of traditional half-trusses with roof purlins and contemporary oak trusses with stainless steel elements connecting the principal rafters. The stainless steel and oak together created a wonderful effect; showing off the clean lines of the metalwork against the warmth, colour and texture of the natural oak.
We were delighted to see the results, a brilliant juxtaposition of light, materials and colours.

At Castle Ring, our emphasis is on individuality.  It’s about what you want – the look you want to achieve, the space you want to create, and the feel you want from your new oak framed home.  The one thing that unites our customers is they all love the look and feel of natural wood – and want a timber frame to be a stand-out feature of their new home. Whatever the scale of your project, or the size of your budget, we are here to help you build your dream house.

We are a bustling timber framing business with a wide portfolio of past projects. Over the years we’ve done it all, from porches to palaces (but mostly family-sized houses). We also specialise in workspaces and workshops. Operating from the Welsh borders, near Presteigne, we work nationwide and, on occasion, further afield. Plus, although we primarilywork with oak, we also use locally-grown larch and douglas fir.

In the world of oak framing, you don’t hear the word “affordable” very often – but here at Castle Ring, we put a big emphasis on affordability. Our prices are extremely competitive. Plus, there are plenty of ways we can tailor our work and trim our approach to squeeze into your budget.If this sounds like you, it would be great to talk:-

  • You are looking to build a beautiful, individual, interesting house (or extension, or workspace)
  • You love the look and feel of natural wood (and want it to be a focal point)
  • You have definite ideas about aesthetics and design (the stronger the better)
  • You have a builder or project manager in mind (or will take this task on yourself)
  • You are interested in the fusion between traditional framing skills and modern energy-efficient construction

Please contact us for a quick, free estimate. All we need to know to get started is:

1. The footprint of your building – how much ground it covers

2. The height – one storey, or two, or more

3. An idea of the overall style of your project – a traditional oak feel, a more contemporary post and beam style, or something in between.

So, please give us a call, or drop us an email, and we’ll get right back to you.
