Traditional Oak Framing Is Timeless

Traditional Oak Framing Is Timeless

Oak framing is a building material that we love at Thinking Buildings. We have completed many projects using traditional oak framing, and we have developed an understanding of how to best use this approach and material in our projects. The image below is a new rear extension to an existing house in Hook Norton that is located in a conservation area and adjacent to a listed building. The oak frame here has been used in both a traditional (with the pitched framed gable), and a contemporary way (with the shallow pitched zinc roof element). This design will really open up the interior of the house and flood it with natural light, with the new kitchen and living space overlooking the large garden to the rear. The interplay of solid and more transparent building elements will hopefully create a really beautiful home for our clients. The project is currently submitted for planning approval.
