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.
This beautiful car deserves a beautiful home. The owner contacted us here at natural structures to design this Oak framed garage and showroom to house his passion. We are in the finishing throws of the assembly process with just the mezzanine floor to install. This is to be hung centrally with the ability to view through both glazed balustraded Oak trusses. To see more detail please see the case studies as we expect to be complete in the next two weeks we intend doing an in depth review.
This traditionally designed air dried oak porch has made its new home in the ancient Roman village of Medbourne, Leicestershire. With the swept eaves beam, jowl posts & vertical breather balustrade the design reflects the prominent position in the middle of this beautiful rural village. Using age old methods and materials we can recreate what would of been here hundreds of years ago giving this new build the authenticity it truly deserves.
Its comforting to know that even with the high amount of glazing that are all ways present in our garden rooms that we are able to easily reach the parameters set by building control for there stringent insulation levels. This new garden room in the village of Medbourne has a very efficient underfloor heating system that is very rarely used as the wood burner easily heats not only the garden room itself but also the adjacent dinning room & kitchen. The glazed units that we standardly use are of the highest spec,Argon filled cavities and heat reflective coatings are to name just few of the many specifications within the glass unit.Insulation levels in the roof are maximised as they are in the floor giving you a highly insulated efficient structure, blend that with the direct glazed method of manufacture equates to a beautiful Oak structure that will stand the test of time in not only design but also function.
Oak Timber Framed Homes (New Builds) This very simple design is an efficient way of creating new space to the ground floor of your home.You simply “Bolt on” the new structure. Disruption is kept to an absolute minimum if you are adding to an existing building or as here to a new build as all of the work is done at the manufacturing stage in work shops in Tur Langton. The base is simply prepared , all landscaping completed and the aperture made watertight until the assembly date. When we arrive on site the structure that has all ready been assembled in our workshops is very quietly and efficiently placed into position , plumbed and then Pegged. The roof, fascia and barge board etc is then fitted which again has all been assembled in our work shop.The glazing and all joinery items are the last to be fitted. This whole assembly process from start to finish on a project like this would take approximately 5-7 days which is why disruption to the home owner and builder is of an absolute minimum.
We are just completing the last touches to this oak framed build in the small village of Great Glen, Leicestershire. With the use of coloured render,oak , glass and simple lines the intention was to create a contemporary villa style dwelling with a relaxed chalet style ambience. Simplicity ,natural light and as many exterior opening doors as possible help create that European feel , letting the inside flow out onto the many terraced areas. The coloured render is a maintenance free material with several years guarantee from stains,degradation and damp impregnation. As soon as the project is complete we intend to feature this project into our case studies.
Oak Framed Porch We have just completed a stunning refurbishment of a beautiful house in the Welland Valley village of Barrowden. The hand built air dried oak frame was an integral part of the refurbishment that allowed us to renew the dynamics of the ground floor of this beautiful home. You can see more images and written specification in our case studies.
Modern Oak Framed Extensions (Oak Framed Outbuilding & Conservatories) We are at the landscaping stages of this beautiful oak frame project in the rural village of Alexton, Rutland. The design brief was to make use of natural light and natural materials and build in a contemporary manner. We achieved this by using central atrium lights set into a standing seam zinc flat roof. By incorporating floor to ceiling glazing we maximised the natural light and also the beautiful views of the surrounding fields.We will be adding this project into our case studies in the next few weeks.
We have almost completed creating this new oak framed home in Old Dalby. As you can see the main area was formed by the use of two hand made oak cruck trusses that formed the backbone for the many waisted oak king post trusses and lower oak frame. The main living area was also completely glazed to gain the maximum natural light and to appreciate the extensive gardens and paddocks that the home sits with in. The new kitchen has recently been installed by one of our partnership companies “Lewis & Hill” and will be completed as soon as the underfloor heating is up and running. We expect the project to be complete in the next few weeks and intend to feature this project into our case studies.
We completed this oak framed extension last year in the very beautiful ancient village of Medbourne. Our brief was, extra space, natural light and a bespoke design. This particular elevation hides the fact that this extension created several rooms including a rear coat/wellie area leading to a fully fitted utility room which in turn leads then onto a open kitchen, dayroom and creche area. The semi circle glazed section is the link from the main house into the new space. With maximum glazing, roof lights and also flat roof velux’s the client’s wishes for natural light were easily obtained. There is more detail in the case studies under Medbourne Oak Frame.
