Sustainably Sourced timber

We care about the natural environment and as timber is our primary building material, we naturally take great consideration of where it comes from.

All of our timber is sourced from FSC/PEFC certified sawmills and suppliers.

Timber as a sustainable Building material

Timber is a natural product that not only has a great many beneficial properties as a building material, such as insulation, strength and flexibility, but it's also a sustainable material that requires relatively little energy to process.


All our timber is sourced from FSC/PEFC certified sawmills and suppliers. FSC/PEFC is the industry standard for stewardship, social responsibility and environmental good practice.

What this means is that all of our timber comes from carefully managed woodland, where as trees are harvested to create timber, new saplings are planted in their place. This ensures that our timber buildings are created from sustainable materials.

During the growth process, trees consume carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, which is great for the environment, as well as providing a natural habitat for wildlife.

Caring for the environment

Ensuring that our primary building material is sustainably sourced is one thing, but it's equally important to make the most of this natural resource.

So all of our timber (with the exception of the purlins and OSB used for internal lining) is pressure treated with the Tanalised E system to protect against decay and insect attack for years to come.

We also endeavour to minimise wastage, so all our wood offcuts are collected and recycled into other wood-based products. As a business, we aim for zero to landfill, and with such a readily recycled core product, we are leaps ahead of others.
