TTF Design Studio

We offer full Building Design and Drafting services for high quality homes, renovations, extensions, and additions in the Southern Highlands, Illawarra, and Sydney regions of NSW, as well as in the ACT.

We can work with you from the conception of your project right through to the completion of fully detailed colour 3D construction drawings. 

 

Timber Frame Design

One of Traditional Timber Frames core services is drawing from our years of traditional woodwork and building experience to design, document and engineer a range of projects from small scale furniture to large commercial roofs and trusses. Some of these we design in conjunction with architects and builders for us to build, and sometimes we design these projects for other people to build….

We have a dedicated timber frame designer on our team who works with our clients to create a completely bespoke and tailor made design package for your project. This might be anything from a simple dining table to a grand mansion in the style of your choice. We use our years of experience as traditional woodworkers and builders, to help create a timeless piece of craftsmanship that you can call your own.

  • Bespoke Traditional Furniture

  • Pergolas, Gazebos, Verandahs

  • Garages, Barns, Sheds

  • Architectural Roof Trusses, Extensions, Conservatories

  • House Frames, Commercial Buildings, Bridges

  • Timber Frame Design as well as Architectural design (we can design the complete house!)

If it involves heavy timbers, traditional craftsmanship and attention to detail, then we are well placed to design it for you.

  • We work with you, to determine exactly what you’re after

  • Choose the particular style you’re going for (traditional English cottage or a modern Australian house and everything between)

  • Work out how much detail you require. If you’re building a frame for yourself, we can provide a relatively simple set of council drawings through to a full set of working drawings, showing a breakdown of every piece, every joint, every measurement and every detail.

  • All of our designs are based on traditional mortice and tenon joinery that stems from the craftsmanship that we pride ourselves on creating in the workshop.

    COMPLETELY ENGINEERED. We design the project and then organise all the relevant engineering to ensure a seamless progression through the relevant approvals processes.


Home Design

2019-03-13_11h36_04.png

As Building Designers, we have a great functional understanding of design principles and styles, and importantly creating designs that can be economical to build and live in. This means we can craft a space which fits what you want and what you didn’t even know you want, but which is made to be beautiful for you.

Our drawings and specifications are crafted with a builder’s eye for detail and functionality. Our full construction detailing is drawn from real-world experience, which allows your project to run smoother, on time and on budget.


All of our work starts with the concepts of solar passive design and sustainability in both ongoing use, and initial inputs. This means a home which is more comfortable, far cheaper to live in, and which is healthier for your family.

The materials and building systems we specify for our home designs are a range of low energy input, natural and non-manufactured, new, recycled and upcycled, non-toxic low-emissions products and styles. This makes your home healthier for you and for the environment without compromising on beauty, durability, or finish.
