Timber Design and Construction was founded by Gaetan Goubet. Trained in France by the Compagnons Du Devoir, a guild of tradesmen, Gaetan Goubet spent 12 years honing his skills across Europe before settling in Scotland. He gained experience working on oak frames and timber projects and undertaking a range of historical conservation schemes before, in 2004, this company was born.
We have under 5 staffs, which helps keep things manageable, we run one project at the time to give our clients our all undivided attention. Our small company is dedicated to a personal service and delivers a high-quality service to clients across mainland Scotland and the Western Isles. Examples of our work can be seen in our Gallery, and testimonials from former clients can also be read on this website. To this day, the company adheres to the same work ethic and passion that was instilled by its founder, working with clients, architect and contractors to get the best possible results.
We also pride ourselves on being one of the most sustainable oak building companies in Scotland. Oak used in all of our projects comes from within 70 miles of our yard and is milled within 10 miles. We shape the beams ourselves on site. We aim for sustainable practice and are delighted to work with those who are seeking eco-friendly building solutions.
Timber Design and Construction always aim not only to meet but to exceed clients’ expectations. We can undertake a wide range of projects, from new homes and entire oak buildings to oak extensions large or small. Whether you are looking for a company to undertake the design and construction of an oak garden building – an oak orangery, oak garage or oak garden studio or office or an oak porch, an oak conservatory, or another oak extension for your home, contact us today to find out what we can do for you.
