About us

Timber is our life , and life is good.

Traditional Timber Frames is a specialist timber framing business led by Chris Nance.  We are based in the Southern Highlands of NSW and since starting in 2009, have worked on a range of projects Australia wide.

Our business is a small and passionate team that prides itself on the finest craftsmanship, attention to detail, customer service and exceptional value for our clients.

We design and build traditionally crafted heavy timber frames (often called post and beam frames) using ethically sourced timbers for public buildings, houses, garages, furniture, joinery and a range of other structures.

Working alongside Architects, Home Owners, Building Contractors and others, we help create quality buildings that are sustainable, unique, beautiful and affordable.
