Sustainable timber frame construction with Irebuild
Using green building techniques and quality timber, Irebuild can design and build bespoke timber frame constructions specific to your needs.
Our projects range from small, residential extensions, conversions, garden offices and summer houses, to large new builds and commercial structures.
Where possible, the timber that we use is reclaimed, locally-sourced and sustainably-felled.
Timber frame structures for commercial projects
We welcome large-scale commercial projects, particularly those that are seeking to build environmentally-conscious structures.
One such project is the award-winning Caddsdown Business Park. For this we used oak frames that were reclaimed from storms in 1989.
Timber frames were also used to create The Linhay – an eco-learning centre based just outside of Exeter, Devon. You can find out more about this project on the The Linhay project page.
Timber frame structures for houses and extensions
We frequently use reclaimed and sustainably-sourced timber to build long-lasting residential structures.
One of our past projects, located in Crackington Haven, Bude, is an excellent example. A large portion of the timber was actually reclaimed from the site itself (as opposed to disposing of it and buying new timber). All new timber bought in was sourced from local suppliers to reduce carbon emissions. We used larch cladding as there has been clear felling of all larch throughout UK due to disease, where possible we try not to unnecessarily utilise healthy endemic timber stocks.
One of our timber frame projects, Otter Farm, was featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs. Find out more on the Otter Farm project page.
Bespoke timber frame summer houses and garden offices
Irebuild ensures that these all garden rooms are well-insulated for maximum energy efficiency. This ensures that you reduce both your carbon footprint and your household bills.
Our constructions are unique and made to order, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a timber frame vision in mind.
Our timber frame structures are entirely bespoke. This means that we price each project individually and will make an assessment based on your vision and specifications.
Where possible, we will use reclaimed, locally-sourced and sustainable timber.
