Timber Roots – Traditional green oak framing and building conservation work to modern carpentry and joinery.

Here at timber roots we enjoy using traditional techniques along with modern building materials, that preserve and compliment our built heritage. Creating a healthy and sustainable environment to live and work in.

New traditionally framed timber structures are our speciality, but we also enjoy working on the conservation of older buildings too, working with other passionate craftsmen and women within this sector.

Sadly many pre 1919 buildings are incorrectly maintained and ultimately end in cold damp buildings. The use of cement on traditional timber framed buildings can lead to rapid demise of the structure. Our aim is to help change this by using the correct materials and practices (to learn more about this click here)

Please do get in contact to talk about an upcoming project, or for advice. If we cannot advise you, we will be able to point you in the direction of a specialist who can.

Let’s care for our environment of which we live and work, passing on a legacy and a sustainable future. 


Angela Hudson – 

Kept me well informed through the whole process. Highly efficient and delivered a totally beautiful oak porch on time. I would highly recommend Howard.


Randal Hemingway – 

I have no hesitation in recommending Howard. He led the team that built our 3 bay oak garage. We were demanding customers with exacting standards, but Howard listened to our wishes and exceeded our expectations. His attention to detail and craftsmanship are exceptional.

Howard delivered the project both to the agreed timescale and budget.

Corey Stephens –

Thanks Howard!
