why choose us

We have a dedicated team


International Timberframe was founded by a Swiss Master timberframer who has over 30 years experience and has offered advice and expertise all over the world.

Design & Planning

We design everything on a CAD model which allows us to show you 3D visuals of what the construction will look like.

Site Measure

We hand-cut the timber to precise measurements prior to delivering to the job site. This results in a speedy and accurate installation, and a superior end result.

Wood Quality

Quality of wood used will play a huge part in the timberframe look, price and change over time. We like to use free of heart wood and wood that is kiln dried.

Hand Cutting

At International Timberframes our values are rooted in keeping the traditional craft of hand-cutting alive.
