Building a new home is always an exciting endeavour. But oak houses offer something far beyond what is possible with other building materials. An investment in an oak home is definitely an investment that will pay off – not just for today but for generations to come.


Oak houses come in a huge range of different shapes and sizes. New build oak structures are almost infinitely versatile and can suit almost anyone. So no matter what you are looking for from your new home, building with oak could be an excellent choice. This beautiful, natural and eco-friendly material, paired with age-old craft and modern engineering, can create the ideal homes of the future. Our many satisfied clients agree.

The ideal oak houses build today will not only delight those who create them but will also endure to delight future generations. Oak is a sustainable material. Not only is it sourced locally, and better than carbon neutral over its lifetime, it is also a material which will last. Building not just for ourselves but for future generations is the very definition of sustainability and this is exactly what we do when we choose to build oak houses.

Constructing new builds in Scotland is not always easy. Often, restrictions on land use and conservation measures mean that it can be tricky to find options that will suit the planners. If you want to find a design for your new home that local officials will be happy with then oak could be the answer. Oak houses are ideally suited to fitting into a wide range of different vernacular styles and can not only fit in but also enhance almost any environment.

If you are considering a new home build, oak houses are an appealing option, combining aesthetics and practicality in the most wonderful of ways. Contact us to start your journey to a new oak home today.



" 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."
