Welcome to Frame Technologies
where your self-build is in safe hands

landmark timber frame house

With over 20 years’ experience in the UK timber industry, we design, manufacture and install bespoke structural timber systems for self-builders who are looking to create outstanding, energy-efficient homes.

Based in Presteigne, Mid Wales – but delivering self-build timber frame homes across England and Wales – Frame Technologies helps self-builders achieve their dreams by offering a wide range of timber frame services from full supply and erect packages to supply only.

We are a small, family business, and pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our clients. Building your own home is one of the most rewarding things that you can do, but we know that the journey can also be a challenging one. There will be times during the project when you will simply need support – and this is where you will most value our friendly, personal service, along with our timber expertise.

At Frame Technologies, we combine expert technical advice with a friendly face. We work closely in partnership with self-builders to establish your objectives and achieve your design aspirations, and we’re always available for a chat and to offer reassurance along with our recommendations.

Our services span across self-build timber frame, timber technology, energy efficiency, technical processes and technical support.

We design, fully engineer and offsite manufacture advanced timber systems in our own factory.

What our
customers say…

Enthusiastic & ready to help from the moment we met

“From the moment that we met Frame Technologies, they were enthusiastic and ready to help us. Having got in touch, we realised that we’re located near to Simon and Jennifer, who came round with a bottle of wine to discuss our plans! As we progressed with the self-build extension, Frame Technologies dealt with questions as soon as they arose and were happy to adapt plans to meet our new design ideas as the build process evolved. Simon and Jennifer consistently checked that we were happy with all developments throughout the process, and our self-build extension was completed in the time span that we had agreed. We would highly recommend them to anyone starting their self-build journey.”

Frame Technologies have helped us to build our dream home during the COVID-19 pandemic

“Frame Technologies have helped us to build our dream home in the most testing times during the COVID-19 pandemic. We cannot praise them enough for their professional work ethic and quality product. Simon & Jenny have made our journey into self-build a pleasurable experience and with their help and support we are creating our forever home. What a brilliant team!”

self-build testimonial from Roger and Rosanna Bromley, self-builders

A friendly, personal service from start to finish

“Working with Simon, Jennifer and the whole team at Frame Technologies was a great experience. From the very beginning, Simon understood that we were self-build beginners. The friendly, personal service was there from start to finish. It was very appealing that we could speak directly with Frame Technologies about any queries at any time. Simon was fantastic when liaising with other trades during the build too, which took pressure off us. Building your own home is such a privilege – both a joy and terrifying – and knowing that we were working with experts in structural timber frame took away a lot of the fear.”

A self-build testimonial from Sarah Whiting, Cedar Barn

Simon and Jennifer have always been at the end of the phone whenever we have wanted help

“We embarked on our first self-build of a passive standard house in Suffolk in October 2019. Having used an architect to design the house for us we then searched for a frame company to build the frame offsite. Out of five companies that quoted we knew from the very first email from Simon Orrells at Frame Technologies that we wanted to work with them. Their Tech Vantage range of frames can provide whatever you are looking for and the one we needed had a very competitive price tag considering the strict insulation and airtight qualities we wanted for our build. Simon and Jennifer are extremely knowledgeable about timber frame building with many years of experience and were incredibly helpful and patient with us. We decided to opt for supply only and erect the frame ourselves but Simon and Jennifer have always been at the end of the phone whenever we have wanted help and advice, no matter how trivial. I can’t recommend them highly enough as their devotion to helping the self-builder achieve their dreams is second to none. They have given us the courage, knowledge and continued support from the beginning and no doubt until the end of our self-build journey. Thank you!”

A self-build testimonial from Suzanne Richardson, self-builder

The after sales service was second to none

“We found Simon from Frame Technologies very knowledgeable, helpful and full of ideas to make our dream a reality. Definitely a glass half full and a can do attitude. The after sales service was second to none and I’m sure he felt as enthusiastic about our dream home as we were. Thoroughly recommend.”

A self-build testimonial from Frank M, self-builder

A one stop shop for your dream home

What sets Frame Technologies apart from other self-build timber frame suppliers is not only the ability to tailor our timber frame systems to meet our clients’ very specific needs and requirements, but the fact we are a ‘one stop shop’. And, in many locations, we can even offer a full package to join all components of your self-build together. This eliminates the need for a separate engineer or foundation contractor.

We transport the systems and components to site, then install the full timber frame super structure.

Early involvement is key – we prefer to get involved from the early design stages and work with you all the way to site delivery and build – to ensure a truly personal, end to end service. This can save you money and value engineer your project, so is worth bearing in mind from the start.

Our single point of contact ensures a greater level of care and control in delivering your dream home on time and within budget.

Let us inspire you…

Specialising in beautiful bespoke homes, Frame Technologies is at the forefront of innovation in self-build timber frame construction. Achieving greater consistency and quality of design, every one of our projects is bespoke and developed to individual requirements.
