Woodlouse Industries – Locally Sourced Timber Products

Woodlouse Industries

Woodlouse Industries is a small sawmill and timber producer, based in the heavily wooded Low Weald area of West Sussex. We make and supply timber materials that are an alternative to the products found in most timber merchants and DIY stores around the UK.

 We believe that minimising ‘wood miles’ makes sense economically and environmentally, and we believe that sustainability starts when you support the local economy and region. We also think that it is vital to find end uses and markets for ‘neglected’ timbers- those that are of a lesser quality or from disregarded species.

 Finished Products-

Building Exterior- We supply sawn and machined claddings and weatherboard, roofing shingles

Construction timbers- We can saw all types of beams, posts, joists and battens

 Landscaping and Garden- We supply finished Pergolas, Arbours, Firewood Stores, Seating, Deck boards and Trellis.

         We also supply sleepers, steps and raised bed making materials.

Fencing and path maintenance- We can saw and supply fencing and waymarker posts, bollards, morticed posts, stiles, bridges and boardwalks.

All of the above are available in naturally durable timbers such as Oak, Sweet Chestnut, Larch, Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar. In most cases their lifespan will be several times more than that offered by standard treated commercial softwood, and therefore represent a significant long term saving.

Bespoke timber supply and sourcing for your project-

We have excellent contacts with woodland owners, local foresters and woodmen, country estates, conservation bodies and local authorities to find useful and beautiful timber for all uses. We stock air dried timber for interior use, and we can saw, machine and supply timber for bespoke building construction, garden and landscape needs.

 If you are looking for a bespoke service to provide interesting, durable, locally sourced wood, we think we can help.

    Hi Will,
    Just dropping you a quick line to say thank you for the lovely job you did today.
    Our oak beam looks amazing & will work perfectly above the aga as a beautiful lintel.
    We will be back in touch for some fence wood & maybe a swing seat!

    Kind Regards

    Hi Will,

    Thanks again for the fir / chestnut slabs you sold me a few months ago. After some work I have now constructed a small workshop / cabin which will blend in to the trees well. With the couple of bits left over I hope to be able to make a rustic garden bench. Maybe after a rustic decking alternative soon.

    Best regards,

      Glad you got on well with the slabwood Paul!

    Will has proved to be a very conscientious and knowledgeable saw miller. He has milled on site for us posts and rails in chestnut, and many other different species of our trees which we have dried and sold on., and used for our projects.
