Timber frame restoration

Oak stakes

Sawn oak battens for lattices in infill sections or slatted ceilings and as a substructure for wattle. The traditional clay infilling techniques are applied for conservation purposes. They are often also more practical than masonry, e.g. where there are very irregular sections or low beams. The oak wood is hard and durable.

Field of application
Oak stakes and willow rods for timber-frame restoration and preservation of historical buildings.
