Welcome to Martin Silburn Timber Framing.
Based in Godney, near Glastonbury in Somerset, we produce hand crafted Oak frames for customers throughout the UK.
We have a small team of experienced carpenters and we use traditional carpentry techniques to construct timber frames to your own requirements.
Whilst we specialise in just the cutting, construction and raising of your timber frame, we can put you in touch with a number of other specialists, all of whom we work with on a regular basis for design work, glazing, joinery, sand-blasting etc.
As well as including examples of our work on this site (on our portfolio page), we have tried to provide some background and depth about timber framing.
It is our intention to use this site to answer some of the questions people have, to explain the terms used in timber framing, to give illustrated examples of the types of joints and structures used and to give a brief history of the use of structural timber frames in the United Kingdom.
We hope you find our site helpful. If you have any questions regarding any aspect of using a timber frame for your home, be it for the whole structure or a porch or garden room, then please do get in touch with us.
If you are further down the line, have plans or drawings already and would like us to quote for your frame, then simply send us copies of what you have and we will be happy to provide a quote.
