We are in the latter stages of creating this grand Cruck Truss air dried oak frame extension . The extension will feature a full curtain glass window at the front of the structure allowing the beautifully hand crafted curved blades to be fully on show 100% of the time. The organic shape of the trusses will enhance the light and emphasises the natural feel of the room.We are extremely proud of producing this very unique design for the client, in the early stages the brief was for the more standard waisted king post trusses but after a little creative thinking the decision was made to build these beautiful cruck trusses. As we complete the structure we hope to feature this project in our case studies as the finished structure will be truly outstanding.

Contemporary Oak Framed Extensions This design brief was to create a covered extended double bay garage and workshop with storage above on the 1st floor which is accessed by an internal staircase. To maximise the position and also the potential functions it was opted for a vaulted glazed space that will double up as a gym and summer garden room. This room has air-conditioning plus underfloor heating which will enable it to be used through all seasons. The internal bays that form the majority of the structure are designed to store two large vehicles with the added space for a medium sized workshop area with hand made Oak work benches and shelves to help in the organising of tools and machinery. The lighting externally was positioned to create pools of light to highlight the detail in the oak frame and to also help illuminate the pathway to the rear of the house. The two garage doors were produced by the German door company Horman , each electrically operated with their fobs paired to each door enabling the user to operate each door with the same fob. The colours of the garage doors were ordered to match the aluminium bi-fold doors in dark […]
The clients brief was for an extension to this beautiful cottage in Whissendine that would allow us to remove some of the internal walls and to recreate the dynamic flow of the house. With the use of the simple materials and good design we were able to create a beautiful space maximising the properties potential. The use of basic material choices kept to a minimum and exposing original brickwork where possible we were able to retain the character of an age old cottage but with the added affect that is created with an open vaulted roof design. The clients were thrilled with the end result and the transformation of their home.
