Westwind Oak – Makers of Bespoke Oak Frame Buildings
Whether you’d like a new home, a place to work, an extension or a commercial building, our handcrafted frames will be individually designed and made precisely for you.
Only a few companies exist that have honed the traditional skills needed to manufacture a green oak frame by hand in a heritage tradition, and Westwind Oak is one of them. We aren’t stuck in the past though…..we use some of the most technologically advanced computer software and modern design principles to create beautifully crafted traditional and contemporary buildings.
We work with self builders, architects and building contractors to create design led, innovative and sustainable buildings that brim with character.

“My design for a green oak frame extension was quite complex, and most framers we visited told us it would not be possible to achieve, trying to persuade us to adopt something simpler. When we met the team at Westwind Oak we were impressed with their attitude, skill and good humour and it was clear that they could successfully undertake our design. So it was their willingness and ability to take on complex designs and constructions which differentiated them from other companies.”
“The building of the frame, delivery and installation had to fit in with our builders time frame, who was building our garage underneath and interfacing the new extension to the old house. Westwind Oak were seamless with this time scale, their delivery and very professional erection of the frame. We have no hesitation in recommending Westwind Oak; from the initial meeting with the design team, right through to the friendly team who delivered and built it.”
“We worked closely with Westwind Oak and our Architect to develop our four bedroom oak framed self-build house. Westwind Oak were a pleasure to work with and delivered the oak frame and sips panels package on time and on budget. The attention to detail and ‘crafting’ of the timbers resulted in a spectacular open plan upstairs living area, taking full advantage of the exposed roof timbers and unique interrupted collar sling brace frames to the gables. We were able to visit the workshop to see the frames being made and the oak frame installation was particularly impressive, taking just one cold December day to erect from sole plate to ridge”
