Timber Framed Extensions

Whether its due to relocation costs or loving your home, many people nowadays prefer to extend their existing property rather than move. A Timber Frame Extension is a fast way to increase your living space.

A Timber Frame Extension can be erected on site in just one day depending on the size and accessibility on site. The build can be carried out in all weather conditions which reduces the labour costs and site organisation, and with a Stick Build you have no storage problems on site as it is built in-situ.

Bespoke homes need a flexible and cost-effective approach which is why all new builds are ZERO VAT rated.

Commercial

Timber frame buildings offer a host of benefits that empower commercial construction in durability, design flexibility, and environmental friendliness. In addition to these practical benefits, a timber frame is an eye-catching conversation piece that will play a memorable part of your business in the years to come.


Barn Conversions

Conversion allows decaying and redundant buildings, some with significant historic interest, to be preserved for future generations. Making these buildings habitable provides an opportunity to add a new layer to this history as well as reusing and reinventing these spaces.


Timber Framed Extensions

The environmental aspects of timber framed extensions are just one of the reasons why this method of construction has become so popular. Not only are the extensions very beautiful to look at but the cost is very competitive when compared with the costs of moving to a larger home.

Clients Testimonials

  • Damon Bryant

    Leigh Shepherd and his team are as good as it gets. Our first project with shepherds joinery was to construct a one bedroom timber frame guest house with double garage below. It took them less than two weeks to get it ready for roof tiles and final fittings.
    It was a sight for saw eyes to watch it go up so quickly and so beautifully. We then got Leigh back to transform our existing brick built 1950's chalet style house into a modern new England timber clad mansion. The results are stunning and we could not recommend Leigh higher enough.
    He cared about every detail, and he would have sleepless nights worrying about aspects of the build, which allowed us not to worry ever. He's charming quick and quite simply brilliant. Oh and he cannot beaten on price. He will also be a friend for life now, and I'm not sure many people can say that about their builder.

    Having decided to retire to France my wife and I spent 2Yrs searching for a suitable property with no success, so we decided to purchase a plot of land with magnificent views over the Pyrenees and design and construct our future home.
    After a number of problems with different as the french call them artisans we were very lucky to have a team of English Timber Frame erectors arrive and the rest is history we have finished up with a magnificent building and I cannot give praise enough for Leigh Shepherd and his team who worked through all weathers to make the building weatherproof and at the same time allowing us to spend our first Christmas in the comfort of this beautiful house..

    -South France Project

  • David Charlton

    Over the past 15 years Shepherds Joinery & General Building Ltd have constructed for us 6 large blocks of flats and over 20 individual houses in the Newcastle area.
    Prior to working with Shepherds Joinery we had worked with a few other Timber Frame Companies who supplied and fitted Panel Kit Buildings, but after experiencing Leigh and his teams constructing Stick Built on site we wouldn't choose any other way in the future, for quality, cost, speed and efficiency.The team at Shepherds Joinery are a dying breed..conscientious, hard working, tidy and extremely good at what they do. We look forward to working with Leigh and his men again later in the year.
