Dear Customers!
We would like to share some important information with you for easier communication and understanding.

Ordering Wood:

  • Our preferred method of communication is email, it allows us to record the information and gives us time to discuss the ability to produce your order. Due to high volume of orders we are unable to answer the phone regularly.
  • We don’t stock any cladding or decking, everything is made to order. Please order in time, ensuring you give us  a minimum of 8 weeks  for completion of your order. For larger projects please advise us of your intentions of ordering in advance, even if you don’t have the exact measurements we can begin to prepare for your order.
  • Please tell us what the wood is for so we can ensure you get the right quality of wood for your project. Larch grows on steep slopes and even though logs look straight while in our yard we expect, due to tension release, some thinner pieces to bend after sawing. This is avoidable on shorter (under 3m) or much thicker pieces (over 100mm). Thankfully larch is very flexible and it is possible to push it into place before securing with nails. If this will be a problem for your project please ask for alternative (Douglas Fir).
  • Our logs come in standard lengths of 6′(1.83m), 8′(2.44m), 10′(3.05m), 12′(3.66m), 14′(4.27m).  (i.e. we cannot produce 2.5m. We can cut 3m down to 2.5m but you would have to pay for the full length)
  • Our rough sawn standard sizes are metric equivalents of standard imperial sizes. (Table at the bottom of the page)
  • Dressing/planing will reduce product size by approx. 5mm (i.e. if you order a board 150 x 25mm PAR you will receive board that covers 145 x 19mm)
  • Tongue and groove will reduce product coverage by 15mm (i.e. if you order flooring or cladding 150 x 25mm T/G you will receive board that is 145 x 19mm and covers 135mm when installed.
  • We don’t stock round fence posts, chestnut paling or gates.

Delivery:

Please contact us to request a quote for delivery. Timber will need to be unloaded by hand unless you have access to a forklift. In case there is no one at the address at the time of the delivery to help unload and/or unloading area is not accessible with a vehicle and timber has to be carried by hand, we will have to charge you for the time it will take our drivers to unload by themselves. If you request delivery for your order please let us know the best delivery times so we can ensure there is no extra cost on both parts.

  • Delivery options:
    • Vehicle 1: – 2 tonnes
    • Vehicle 2: – 1 tonne

Visiting:
