This oak clad annexe packs quite a punch thanks to clever design. Entering the front door via a covered oak framed porch, there is a wide entrance hall and a large open plan space with a small kitchen area. Also included on the ground floor is an enclosed office and separate WC and upstairs are three further rooms, each with dormer windows. Outside there are 2 open garage bays and a storage room built to the side to complete the features of this stunning property.
In September 2018 (and repeated in July 2020), Grand Designs featured this modern, steel framed, floating glass house built by our clients down in Cornwall and inspired by the James Speyer house featured in the 80's cult movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Oli was hired primarily as Project Consultant, but also got hands on inside and out as a carpenter. He got on great with Kevin McCloud and the production team and, if you watch the episode, you will see him 'on the tools', being interviewed, directing the construction team for the frame installation and getting a nice mention from Kevin at the end!
Just three months into the build of this four bedroomed house in Farnham, we had phase 1 almost complete. The bespoke oak frame was up, the SIPS panels were in and the oak cladding was on. SIPS are structural insulated panels - the go-to choice for low energy homes with the added advantage of being quick and easy to install. Our client chose to build this house in two phases, with phase 2 seeing the second 'wing' added.
This elegant oak framed porch gives our clients valuable additional usable space that serves as an extension to this bungalow. A cost effective way of increasing the footprint of a property, as well providing another layer of front door security, kerb appeal and, of course, added value. We popped back on a freezing cold morning to see how it was weathering in.
Stud wall partitioning and a newly installed roof light allows us to create this light and spacious en suite shower room for our clients. It features custom made Shaker-style panelled walls, a generous subway tiled shower enclosure, a geometric concrete tiled floor with underfloor heating and traditional fittings suited to the period property in which we created it!
The addition of this hand made oak framed porch, with tiled roof to match the house itself and the surrounding buildings, has enhanced the appearance of the house and given some much appreciated cover for our clients. A quick visit by our electricians to install an overhead light completed the job.
A major refurbishment of the interior of this old barn (after the exterior renovations were completed) to create a stunning family home. Oak flooring upstairs, polished concrete floors downstairs, exposed timbers throughout and plenty of recycled materials everywhere!
Engineered oak floorboards run throughout the ground floor of this house and, together with a hand-built kitchen using reclaimed scaffold boards and zinc worktops, create a modern and practical finish.
The bare 'bones' of the building on display here with the Douglas fir frame and King post trusses we supplied for the construction of a two storey, L-shaped house in South Warnborough.
Our clients are delighted with this quality custom built country kitchen, with lacquered weathered oak work surfaces, fitting perfectly in their oak framed extension. With thanks to our friends at www.riverwoodwork.com.
Major remodelling of this Surrey cottage included building on a large, oak framed extension to create a new open plan sitting room and kitchen, plus a ground floor family bathroom. We even managed to squeeze in a separate laundry/utility area. The light-filled space created features exposed beams, recessed and feature spot lights, automated Velux skylights, traditional style French doors to the garden and engineered oak floorboards throughout.

A custom built open staircase beautifully displays the curved timbers of the oak frame and pegged mortice and tenon joints in this Surrey house.
This specially commissioned solid oak staircase was designed to compliment the oak framed extension in which it sits. It includes a 180 degree turn, polished treads, straight banisters and a rounded hand rail, with custom storage units built underneath to make use of every inch of available space.
A range of stunning Shaker style bespoke cabinetry built and installed into this Greywell home. The home office features a wall of units fitted with adjustable shelving above and pull out filing drawers below. And in one of the bedrooms, an under-eaves wardrobe maximises the space available with 3 hanging cupboards and deep storage drawers beneath.
Shown here are a pair of bespoke floor to ceiling bookcases with antique marbled mirror panelled doors, carved mouldings and a distressed paint finish. With adjustable shelving inside, our clients chose to have one installed either side of their French windows.
Architectural 3D drawings illustrate to our client how their unique and ground-breaking cruck-framed eco-house would look in situ.
