The Process

Whether your coming to us with an idea, or already have architects drawings we will work with you to make your idea of an oak frame a reality.

The Process


Whether or not you need planning for you chosen frame depends on a number of factors such as the size, finished height, location to the house and what kind of structure it is. Most properties have permitted development rights, and under these rights you can lawfully build as long as you meet the criteria for the chosen build. Garages and garden rooms can, depending on where they are sited, be built to come under permitted development. We are happy to provide guidance on planning and permitted development however it is always worth checking with your local planning authority.

If planning is needed, we can help you with the process of getting permission through one of our planning consultant contacts. Likewise, if building regulations are needed then structural engineering calculations would be required which we can obtain. We would recommend to our clients to have an architect involved on larger projects, we can provide suitable architect details if needed, working alongside an architect and yourself we will ensure you get the frame you want.

The Build

Hand crafting frames is at the heart of what we do, and we take great satisfaction in doing so. Whether a small porch or large garage we take pride in making the frames to the highest standard.

Here are some images with frames both in the workshop and being raised on site.
