Sussex-born Richard Thomlinson originally trained as a microbiologist. Following the hurricane of 1987, he changed direction and set up in business with one of the first Woodmizer mobile sawmilling machines in Sussex. In 1992 Richard bought a derelict sawmill yard in Slugwash Lane, near Haywards Heath, and built an oak-framed workshop and office as a demonstration building. The expansion into oak framed buildings was a natural progression.


Through every stage of development, from the initial conversation about a new building, extension or restoration, to the production of technical drawings and a quotation, right through to completion, we see the relationship with our clients as a partnership. We are happy to work with clients’ own architects or to make recommendations. Whatever the mix of the team, we are flexible and enjoy project management, ensuring regular communication between all parties. However big or small, we take pride in fulfilling all projects within the agreed deadline and budget.


We are currently working on an innovative eco project to produce a blueprint for affordable, modular timber-frame housing. The concept combines traditional architectural styles with renewable materials and innovative, energy-saving technology.

Our portfolio of oak-framed projects ranges from summerhouses, garages, house extensions and barns to a school. Click here for more information about our oak-framed buildings and for our portfolio.
