Anglo-French Timber Frame and Anglo-French UK specialise in the supply of timber frame houses throughout the UK and Europe. We are a small but highly experienced business, with the combined experience of the entire team amounting to many decades.

Typically we work with 195mm x 45mm or 184mm x 38mm external wall panels,which compare very favourably with the120mm studs often used by French manufacturers.Clearly these extra thick panels provide significantly enhanced thermal performance ( typically a grade A for RT 2012 ) as well as making the overall superstructure more robust. It should be noted that the norm for external panels in the UK is 140mm, though this is usually in conjunction with a cavity and a brick outer skin.

Recently we have developed something of a specialisation in Alpine chalets and we are now quite expert in the  structural engineering which goes into this very particular form of construction. These are designed to be particularly robust,and in fact local builders in the Alps who have seen our chalets have been know to comment on this fact ! Some of our projects have been quite complex, however we can take on most designs from relatively simple bungalows to chalets,a terrace of houses or even a block of flats.

All our designs conform to Eurocode 5 which are EU harmonisation standards for this method of construction. To date we have supplied or erected buildings in the Limousin, the Charente, Brittany, the Auvergne, the Gers, the Dordogne, Languedoc Roussillon and different parts of the French Alps.We have also suplied and erected houses in the UK and even Switzerland.

If you have your own particular design, then we can provide a quote to have this design fabricated. For projects less than 170m2 of surface de plancher ( which now supersedes the old SHON value ) we can arrange to have a planning application package put together by our partners in France - this company can also generate a RT 2012 thermal study which is now mandatory. 

We offer a selection of different designs which can be purchased at a set price for the basic superstructure and for haulage on articulated lorries to your site. Please see the page ' bungalow and house kits' for the available selection of designs. Prices for these are available on request and will vary slightly according to the choice of external panel thickness.

" I would like to congratulate Anglo-French and the team on the job that they have done. I shall have no hesitation in recommending both Anglo-French and the team, particularly DB, to anyone interested, for the design, quality and execution of the building. " Mr JH November 2013

" We have been so pleased and impressed with your business and attention to detail. The team of erectors seem to be very good and think things through so well. So far things could not be better." Mrs MT June 2014

We would like to send heart felt thanks to David, Richard, Dave, Martin and Jim for your enthusiasm and hard work in building our dream house in France. Everyone worked tirelessly to make our build run smoothly, and the end result was better than we could have wished for, and the time from inception to completion was meticulous in its planning and execution, thank you for all your hard work." John and Lynne from Soumartre - August 2015
