The sixteenth-century timber frame was repaired, restored and in some cases (where it had been inadvisably removed) reïnstated by Tim Potts of the Oak Frame Carpentry Company.

In our winter programme Tim Potts gave a fascinating talk on the restoration involved. From toolmarks, scribing marks, timber sizing and pegged mortises in the existing timbers, Tim Potts established that the original building had just three windows on the first and second floors-one in the middle of each bay-and that all six of these windows projected from the building as oriels.

Tim Potts, Director of the Oak Frame Carpentry Company, explains further: "To produce a timber framed structure, individual pieces of timber have to be jointed at one or both ends so that they fit together into an overall frame - if any of these joints is not entirely accurate, the frame will be impossible to piece together.

In an effort to minimise time input into quotations and maximise the accuracy of designs produced, Potts researched the merits of CAD systems and decided this was the only way to achieve the company's goals.
"If I select a standard piece of linear timber from the GDL library and want to add a particular type of joint at either end, the software immediately updates the impact of this decision on the overall design," explains Potts.
"Being able to actually show clients what to expect is a further benefit," says Potts.

"Of course, in the workshop the carpenters had no way of testing whether the odd cuts they were being asked to make would create the desired result," explains Potts. "But when the frame was fully erected onto the masonry on site the purlin line was straight and true, with no further adjustments required. It was certainly a great moment for us to see this project come together with such ease, particularly when one considers the complexities it would have posed without the modelling technology."
"Being able to visualise plans has proved invaluable in many ways, actually," continues Potts.
Tim concludes: "The software enables the entire project to be managed more accurately with no omissions and with no costly re-work.
