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.
