At Royalston Oak we like to keep things simple. We do one thing and we do it well. We hand-craft traditional timber frames for homes, barns, cottages and additions.
We will work with you or your architect to design a timber frame from your ideas or plans. We can adapt a stick-frame design to a timber frame design; we can design a timber frame addition to your existing house or as a part of your building project. If you would like a timber framed family room or great room as a complement to a conventional frame, we can do that.
Planning your timber frame is just as important as the fabrication. We can provide complete blueprint and engineer packages, or just framing plans. Our fame plans are reviewed and stamped, if required by a licensed structural engineer.
We also coordinate the stress skin panel phase of your project, if you choose to use stress skin panels. We will provide the company of your choice with framing plans, elevations and floor plans. We will coordinate the delivery of the panels to your site with the frame raising, to reduce the time the frame is exposed to the weather.
We cut only one frame at a time. We try to cut your frame when you will need it. If that is not possible we will cut it and store it in our timber storage shed.
