This unique project was designed and built for our client Ben and his young family. What made this project particularly special is that the timber used was sourced and milled locally by Ben through his arborist business.
The clients on this project contacted us after seeing one of our projects in a nearby village. They fell in love with the timber, joinery and craftsmanship and were set on incorporating something similar into their proposed new gallery. We introduced the clients and their builder Preston and Sons, to one of our preferred building designers Longhouse Homes.
In 2015 Traditional Timber Frames undertook a project to add an extension to a federation era cottage home in Arcadia, NSW. It involved the design and creation of a full timber framed addition, with a soaring raked ceiling revealing beautiful exposed trusses with gently curved featured elements. As you can see from the photos the results were stunning!
This project was commissioned under a partnership between architects Suttie & Rofe in 2013. The project was a multi-million dollar development of the Benedict XVI retreat centre, owned by the Catholic Church. Our brief was to design and construct an outdoor pavilion roof as the centre point feature of the entire development.
