From homes to offices, summer houses to other garden buildings, oak buildings can be extremely versatile. They can be both beautiful and useful – an enticing combination of practicality and attractiveness that is hard to beat. If you are considering a new construction – Scottish oak could be the perfect building material to choose.


Oak buildings from Timber Design and Construction are built to last. Oak is a material for the ages – a material that can withstand the extremes of our climate and can cope with anything that the Scottish weather can throw at us. Strong, hardy and versatile, oak is ideal for a wide range of different building projects.

What is more, our enduring oak framed buildings are a sustainable and eco-friendly choice. Sourced locally, the oak we use in our oak buildings is a green option for your building project – better than carbon neutral, natural and long-lasting. Unlike other modern building materials, oak not only blends in with our beautiful Scottish landscapes but also helps to enhance them.

Aesthetic considerations also come into play. Oak is a truly beautiful material, which can delight the eye and soothe the soul. Our oak frames only get more beautiful as time goes by – mellowing and developing a patina with age. The inside spaces you can create when you choose to build with oak are truly delightful – calming spaces fit for a range of purposes.

No matter what kind of oak buildings you require – we can help. However, you plan to use the space, whatever size of structure you wish to create, we can aid you in meeting your goals. Contact us today to discuss your requirements and to move closer to creating the oak building you want and need.



" TDC completed full design, construction & installation of oak frames & trusses for my new-build house. I found them very professional and helpful to deal with. Very good craftsmen. "

Gordon F.

" Whole service was excellent and seamless from start to finish. Owner spent plenty of time discussing our plans and making useful suggestions. Their work was scheduled to work in and around the other trades involved in our new build and they were very flexible about this. Most of their work was carried out in their workshop, then rapidly assembled on site. The finished job, which is a green oak sunroom, is absolutely stunning and is frequently commented on and praised by people walking past our house or visiting. Although work of this high quality is never going to be cheap, it was significantly less expensive than we expected and represents excellent value for money. Without doubt, this is our favourite part of the house and we would highly recommend the company to anyone considering a similar project "

"Gaetan and his team have done an oak frame project and stairs for me. Consisted of four large frames, balcony and stairs, a separate main hallway stairs and a large 10 seat oak table. A large project involving an awkward access to the build site. Gaetan delivered exactly on time and remained onsite untill the oak project was finished. Very high standard workmanship and finish on all aspects of this project. Highly recommend Gaetan for any size of oak project and build."

"We had our beautiful green oak frame extension built in this year by Timber Design & Construction. Gaetan was excellent to get along with right from the design phase to the finish and was very professional in his approach , which resulted in a fantastic job with the extension. We would highly recommend Timber Design & Construction and would definitely use them again without hesitation."
