To make an oak frame you have to fell a number of mature oak trees. You may be wondering whether this construction method can be environmentally sustainable.
There are three main reasons why using timber for building frames can be a good thing
At Castle Ring we are surrounded by over 40,000 native broadleaved trees and shrubs that we have planted ourselves over the last 15 years, transforming a previously monoculture conifer plantation into a thriving woodland habitat supporting all manner of wildlife.
We also invite people to consider building frames using homegrown Douglas Fir and European Larch, grown on a local estate just over the hill, felled by local contractors, and milled within a few miles radius.
If you're considering an oak framed building (or larch, or douglas fir), let's talk. We'll gladly put together an outline quote (completely free, with no strings attached). And we need very little information from you to do so.
Equally, we're always here, at the end of the phone, to talk through your ideas.
