Structural or green oak has been part of our building industry for centuries. Renowned for it’s great strength and durability it is the natural choice for timber framed buildings.
Green oak when cut has a higher moisture content so it is easier to cut joints and shape than air dried oak. Once constructed, an oak timber frame will dry naturally and shrink. This causes the joints to tighten and creates a structurally sound frame. Oak dowels are used to hold the joints, and the posts and beams shrink and tighten around them. All of our fresh sawn oak beams can be cut to suit your specific requirements.
