Our History

Established in 1974, Frame UK remains a family-run business to this day, renowned for providing high-quality timber frame constructions.

Like many family firms, our beginnings were humble. We started out with a small workshop-style factory in Perranporth – and now we operate from a modern 95,000 square foot, fully-automated factory on a 4.5 acre site. Many of our employees have shared this journey with us for over thirty years, and have helped thousands of clients build their dream homes.

A delight to work with... [We are] delighted with the quality of the timber frame; the final product is beyond our expectations. The erection team worked tirelessly and with such efficiency. The cost of the frame was on budget. The whole experience was really positive with very little stress. We are even thinking of taking on another project and, if we do, Frame UK will definitely be part of it. Mr N Pullen
