Detached 5 bedroom house in Truro, Cornwall



We were appointed to work on this very exciting bespoke structure in Flushing, Cornwall. Access to the site was extremely challenging, and the lead time short. The timber frame package included some very large 13.5m long curved Glulams, shipped in from Holland - which we had to somehow get to the site! Thanks to forward-planning on the logistical side, we were able to navigate this smoothly. The frame itself was a single skin timber frame structure, using recycled fibre board with a direct render system. The project was incredibly challenging in many ways, but working in partnership with our client we managed to deliver a top level service and keep the works on schedule. The client was informed and fully involved throughout so that they could plan the follow on works accordingly.

We commissioned Neil Mercer to design and project manage the timber frame for our new build house in Flushing, Cornwall. The house is large, the design challenging and the access extremely difficult. Neil showed great commitment and resourcefulness and proved himself more than equal to the task. He has been trustworthy, reliable, straightforward and honest. We have found that the service he provides is unique in that he is personally responsible for all aspects of the design and organisation and is always available and extremely patient in explaining options and alternative solutions. We have been very happy with his work and have no hesitation in recommending him
