Creating Beautiful Traditional Oak Frames

Creating Beautiful Traditional Oak Frames

Thinking Buildings have worked on a number of projects in recent years that incorporate traditional oak framing. This fantastic building material works particularly well within historic settings and with other traditional building styles and materials.

Thinking Buildings designed this new build house in Oxfordshire which recently secured planning and conservation area consent. It has a simple but striking core of local stone and slate roofing, a rear projecting gable with fully glazed oak framing that brings a real sense of craftsmanship, drama and beauty to the design.

A thorough understanding of how to best use oak framing, and how best to source the frame using a reliable and highly skilled supply chain is crucial to the overall success of the project. Thinking Buildings are here to support clients who wish to integrate this fantastic craft into new house designs, or for adapting or converting existing timber framed structures.
