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 building.
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.
Our clients wanted a multi-functional space that could incorporate a home gym, TV den, sophisticated bar and guest accommodation. We delivered all that within a 10 x 6 meter building with the inclusion of a fully fitted shower room on the ground floor and a mezzanine floor above to provide plenty of space for (in this case) open plan sleeping quarters. Images of the building exterior are shown in the Outbuildings section of our portfolio.
With the front of the house newly painted, and the porch timbers weathering down nicely, this bespoke porch now looks like it has always been there - as it was designed to be!
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 concrete tiled floor with underfloor heating and traditional fittings suited to the period property in which it sits!
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!
Replacing a dated porch with a new oak framed one gave this house a much needed and appropriate facelift. Careful handling of the roof tiles when dismantling the old porch meant we could re-use them so the new roof fits in seamlessly and the oak has now weathered down to a gorgeous silvery grey.
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 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.
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.
We've installed a selection of reclaimed oak beams into the ceilings of the kitchen, sitting room and hallway of this designer home. Each beam was hand-picked by our client, chosen for its unique characteristics, to create a striking feature to complement the crisp white finished rooms.
Solid oak posts and curved braces provide the frame for this impressive two storey feature entrance to this new build brick and flintstone Surrey home.
Major remodelling of this Surrey cottage included building on a large oak framed extension to create a new open plan sitting room and kitchen. We also included a separate laundry/utility area and a family bathroom. 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.
