A new self-build Client in Mawnan Smith, building 2 large houses . This beautiful location near Falmouth is the setting for the clients to enjoy their carefully, well thought out designs.

The build utilises our highly efficient Thermo Closed Panel system to achieve excellent U Values and SAP rating.  The client has chosen to mix the roof design options, using standard trusses to create flat ceilings to the majority of the house and a Glulam ridge beam and rafters to create a fully vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom, which will allow natural light to flood through the fully glazed gable end.

Steel portal frames make it possible to include large glazed openings within the timber frame structure, precisely designed and fitted by Frame UK’s experienced team.
