Timber roof trusses are enjoying a resurgence in the design of residential and commercial buildings. Their strength and aesthetic appeal, in addition to their durability, gives them distinct advantages over other materials. Foxtail can design and create roof trusses that are compatible with any roofing option from thatch to tiles. Architects are increasingly using designs with exposed roof trusses, and timber is their clear first choice for the warmth it brings to what can otherwise be quite cold modern buildings. All Foxtail roof trusses are custom-designed and handmade to exact specifications. Whether they are intended to be seen or not, they are always of the highest quality.


The South African climate is perfect for outdoor living, and swimming pools and braais are staples of our family leisure time at home or on holiday. Quality timber decking is a graceful and practical addition to any structure, enabling you to enjoy the outdoors just as much as the indoors by expanding your living space. Hard-wearing yet beautiful, timber decking ages elegantly and will provide decades of service. We only consider a Foxtail decking project to be complete once we have handed over a project-specific maintenance manual with all the information you need to ensure your decking gives you as much pleasure in the years to come, as on the day we lay it. We also work with a range of eco-friendly composite decking materials, which offer many of the aesthetic advantages of wood combined with almost zero maintenance.


Claddings are a popular facade that can add warmth to a building and provide a sustainable option over brick or alternative finishes. It is an attractive and economical way to finish a new structure, and can be retro-fitted to existing structures to update their appearance. The range of colours and finishes available presents the option of either blending in harmoniously with the building’s surroundings, or standing out and making a statement. Either way, no-one can fail to notice the quality of a Foxtail finish. Foxtail’s innovative approach to cladding has seen us build up expertise in all the latest cladding techniques, including blade walls.


Modern landscape architects turn to Foxtail when looking to create landmark features in larger grounds. Our beautiful yet durable wooden structures can enhance any garden, especially when placed in locations where natural growth of roses and vines will complete their integration into their surroundings. Foxtail pergolas add shade, substance and focal points to both new and mature gardens, and facilitate use of the grounds throughout the day. By handmaking all our pergolas from carefully selected timber, we imbue them with lasting organic qualities that ensure they never look out of place. Whether you plan an elegant, manicured garden or a more natural look, a Foxtail pergola can fulfill any role from centrepiece to contemplative corner.


Hardwood floors are an affordable luxury that add immeasurably to the character and beauty of your home or lodge, and offer an unbeatable combination or warmth, natural aesthetic appeal and practical advantages. The natural variations in wood mean that the tone and feel of your flooring will change throughout the day. Foxtail can source the widest range of hardwood species from around the world, to find a perfect match for your décor scheme, whether you choose contemporary or traditional. We also offer laminate flooring solutions, and every Foxtail floor is precisely engineered for a seamless and dead level fit.


While we specialise in timber, we also have the know-how to work with other materials that complement timber and enable us to go to think outside the box in terms of design and functionality. Neither wood nor steel alone is the perfect choice for every single application, but by combining the best qualities of each in the structures we build, we create subtle, dynamic and resilient projects which are as brilliantly engineered as they are intuitively beautiful.


Foxtail’s quality materials and outstanding workmanship take staircases to the next level – in every sense. Whether required for indoor or outdoor settings, a Foxtail staircase is certain to complement to the design of your building. And they’re guaranteed creak-free, which is good news for kids raiding the fridge at midnight! We also specialise in combination steel and timber staircases for the best of both worlds.


Building in remote bush locations presents its own challenges. Choose Foxtail to build your lodge and you’ll appreciate that the extra attention to detail is definitely worth it. We have a strong record of successful lodge projects, including expertise in getting the necessary materials and craftsmen on site on time – and in the right order. Wild Africa is incomparably beautiful, but a Foxtail structure can underline this beauty without taking anything away from it.

Log homes are a common sight in Canada, and while the concept is a new one to Canada, we believe that a Pioneer log home can be just as at home – and provide just as excellent a home for you and your family – here in Africa.


Give your family, visitors or customers more space and options to enjoy the wonderful South African climate. Make the most of your garden or grounds, add interest to estate landscapes or facilitate activities for game lodge guests. Foxtail outdoor structures can do all of these things, and more. No matter the location or your requirements, engage Foxtail to see your outdoor space dreams come true.


At Foxtail, we build for life. With appropriate care, any product that carries the Foxtail name will endure almost indefinitely. As a natural product, wood does of course change over time – especially if it is exposed to the sun and the rain. This is part of the living beauty and character of timber and can be a source of great joy and satisfaction. To preserve Foxtail structures or decking for decades, we supply a comprehensive maintenance guide on completion of each project. It’s just another example of our world-class customer service. If you would prefer a zero-maintenance decking option, talk to us about composite decking solutions. We also offer a variety of maintenance programmes whereby Foxtail technicians will visit your property and give it the same level of care it received during construction and installation, whether it needs a simple brush or more detailed preservation work.
