From the seller:
The oak frame consists of nearly 50 tonnes of Green oak, taken from approximately 86 trees, some of which date back over 200 years. The frame consists of around 700 pieces. The oak was harvested in Britany and shipped back to the UK to the manufacturers of the frame "WESTWIND OAK", based in Claverham, North Somerset. Westwind Oak was chosen for its reputation for building bespoke quality projects, such as the National Trust and English Heritage using the same Medieval techniques used hundreds of years ago. Westwind Oak was also chosen as it uses larger sizes of timber in its frames, compared to other oak frame companies.
