Studio Frame Lift

The most satisfying part of any build? The time when all the hard work, setting out, preparation and precise making comes together in a heroic couple of days. At a stroke, the form of the building becomes visible. This one is particularly satisfying for me – it’s made on site, from timber grown and milled on site, – with no treatment, processing or transport.
