Timber-frame structures, Bespoke rustic furniture & Carvings
Walnut Tree House

Walnut Tree House

The entire structure is built with Sweet Chestnut that we coppiced ourselves, apart from some structural joists. It has an Oak upper and lower deck, and at no point touches the Walnut tree.

This structure has a double set of swings, slide, sandpit, ramp, tree house, children’s benches, adult benches and table. It is designed for children to have fun, and adults to be able to make themselves comfortable as well. We really focused on making the structure flow and work with the surrounding garden.

Artisan Structures harness the beauty of the wood to create unique and bespoke products.

Artisan Structures are based in the Newmarket area in Suffolk. Duncan Dodds and William Trundley are local carpenter/joiners and Tim Atkins is an experienced chainsaw carving artist.
