We adopt both traditional off-site and on-site manufacturing methodology and combine them to give the customer the best service along with insulation and carpentry services to see your project through to completition.


Preconstruction Planning

Once our estimating department have returned your quotation, the sales team have touched base to introduce themselves, you're satisfied with our quotation and would like to place an order with us, we will invite you to our offices for an informal meeting to discuss all elements of the project from start to finish, to meet our team and have a brainstorming session. 


If you have any questions about the move to timber frame construction, engineering, layout drawings, insulation, health and safety, delivery, cranes, site management etc, this would be the time that we put your mind at ease that you're partnering with a company that can exceed your expectations, cope with any size project and have a thorough knowledge of the industry along with a drive for passion of customer service.

Timber Frame Manufacturing

When we're in possession of your  architects drawings, a soleplate layout is produced and sent to you for approval, enabling the ground works and ground floor slab to be detailed, then a full structural design with wall and floor layouts at all levels is then produced along with roof layout and sections and sent for approval, all drawings are then issued with a "Drawing Issue Register" showing a list of all drawings, revision numbers and any amendments.

We include line and point loads for foundation design and full structural design of timber frame structures from our engineer.

Once our drawings are approved for manufacture and all specifications agreed our contracts team will be in touch to agree a start date and sequence of work according to your site plan so that work can begin on site immediately and run smoothly to your time scales.

On completion our fully engineered design includes all documentation for local authority and NHBC approval and a full set of structural calculations provided by our structural engineer will be issued along with a handover certificate for sign off.

All of our timber is responsibly sourced from suppliers certified in the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).


LNM has vast experience with this service, by using respected equipment brands and trusted material providers. We offer professional and experienced help with your projects, helping to match your unique needs and budget. We strive to provide great customer service and clear communication so you can understand the progress of your job at every phase.



We are the hybrid timber frame manufacturer, we adopt both traditional off-site and on-site manufacturing  methodology and combibe them to give the customer the best service along with insulation and carpentry services to see your project through to completition.

Most timber frame manufactures will only supply the bare minimum structure of the building and then walk away, with the majority not even offering critical items such as insulation, here at LNM we pride ourselves by being unique, by offering the complete package and making your purchasing, management and site operations simpler, thus saving you time and money on your day to day overheads.


We keep one step ahead of the competition by offering the customer what we feel should be the true timber frame package, with customer service and site management levels to match.

Combined we have over 30 years experience in the timber frame, trussed rafter and engineered joist industry, so put your trust in us. 

What sets us ahead of our competition is our customer service levels, delivery timescales, manufacturing process, attention to detail as we use skilled carpenters rather than labourers, on time management within budget and flexibility because we manufacture our panels on site.  We still provide you with fully engineered layout and panel drawings for approval as any manufacturer would do, but because we manufacture our panels on site we’re able to decrease lead times to only 6 weeks from receipt of order as opposed to 12-16 weeks from most off site manufacturers, we still optimise timber to reduce waste costs as we work to CAD manufacturing drawings, we’re more environmentally friendly as we don’t have the carbon footprint of a factory and have less site deliveries meaning less impact on our roads and consequently pollution.

We can adapt to any last minute site changes to a build immediately which is a skill up until now only a traditional builder could offer because a factory based supplier needs to coordinate any changes through a contract manager, surveyor, design team, engineer, production and then delivery which can take weeks and cost you more!  We simply speak to our engineering department and make the change to our panel on site immediately.

As a timber frame manufacturer we are that confident in our site management and skilled carpenters that we don’t just walk away from the structure, we work with you to not only supply the timber frame, joists and trusses but also complete first and second fix carpentry even down to the fitting of insulation, fascia and soffits. 

This gives you the customer not only the cost savings but the reassurance that you’re partnering with a customer service lead company that has not only the experience, the infrastructure to manage your carpentry on site from start to finish, but also carpenters that are more skilled than a mass producing panel factory and who can provide you the “family" finish throughout the whole of your project as if it was our own house.
