The Most Reliable Oak Framed Buildings Petersfield Has to Offer  

Here at OakCraft, we take immense pride in providing customers with the most reliable oak framed buildings Petersfield has to offer. Whatever addition you’re hoping to add to your property, we can make it happen, from oak framed garden rooms to garages, Oak framed property extensions, workshops, and more. We design and build oak framed buildings that are sublime using the best materials procured from sustainable sources. 

You may have considered a metal or brick-and-mortar option, as these are typically the go-to building materials. However, timber often gets a bad rep as a material that deteriorates rapidly and rots easily. Some people also believe that timber isn’t particularly good at keeping a property warm and dry – a misconception most likely resulting from the existence of single-glazed windows. 

The reality couldn’t be further from the truth, as you’ll learn when reading through the benefits of oak framed buildings below. In short, oak buildings are modern, efficient, elegant, and likely the best investment you’ll make so far as your property is concerned. So, how do you go about having one added to your property? 

Get in touch, and we’ll discuss your ideas, offering suggestions of our own to help you bring your vision to life. We work closely with you to ensure that the final build exceeds your expectations. Our attention to detail and desire for perfection are traits that complement our “can-do” attitude, making us the first port of call for many Petersfield residents seeking oak framed buildings. 

We offer our customers two options – ‘Supply Only’ and ‘Supply and Assembly’. Our ‘Supply Only’ service is where we supply all the oak and softwood components along with full assembly instructions. We’ll cut all the oak to size and joint it at our mill, but any softwood must be cut onsite. Of course, we’ll also need to ensure that the building is assembled on a base that meets our specifications. 

If you’d rather not attempt the assembly yourself and have nobody else to do it, choose ‘Supply and Assembly’ instead. We’ll produce the base and brick plinth (or if one exists, we’ll survey it to ensure it meets our specifications). Then, the complete frame will be delivered to your site, and a day later, our team will arrive with a crane to complete the assembly. 

Once assembly is completed, we’ll stud, clad, cut the roof, and fit any specified joinery and glazing. You can then decide to use your own roofer or let us tile the building for you. 

Prior to any construction taking place, you’ll likely need to submit a planning application. We can help with this free of charge, though a non-refundable local authority fee will be owed. If you require a more specialist planning service, we can put you in touch with the right professionals. 

Benefits of Oak Framed Buildings   

If you’re considering adding a building with an oak frame, you likely need no further convincing. But if you’re still on the fence and considering a metal or brick-and-mortar option, we ask you to consider the benefits of Timber construction. The use of oak in construction dates back centuries, and with good reason.  

Only with an oak building can you enjoy such benefits as: 

  • Unique Character and Charm 
  • Durable, Low-Maintenance Design 
  • Quick and Simple Construction 
  • Eco-Friendly Design 
  • Natural Heat and Sound Insulator 
  • Sustainability 
  • Grace and Natural Beauty 
  • Gets Better with Age 

Modern buildings tend to all look very much alike, even when the underlying design differs, because of the uniformity of the materials used. Conversely, as a natural material, each piece of oak looks different to the next, so every oak building has a slightly different look. Oak also evokes a natural charm and character that’ll have a transformative effect on any setting, from rural to urban and even industrial. 

The beauty of oak is that it’s among the most durable of all types of timber. It is highly resistant to moisture and very hard-wearing, so you can expect it to easily stand up to the elements over time. In addition, Oak requires no treating with fire retardants or preservatives and none of the upkeep of metal buildings. Finally, consider that many oak buildings have stood for centuries, while modern buildings often barely last decades. 

One of the biggest advantages of oak framed buildings, Petersfield customers, is speed and ease of construction. Most oak buildings can take days to assemble (some can be erected in a single weekend), while metal and certainly brick-and-mortar buildings can take weeks or months. 

Another factor to consider is that timber frame buildings have a relatively dry construction process. Once the building is made watertight, electrical and plastering work can begin much sooner, with the delays often associated with brick-and-mortar structures never a factor. 

All timber used in our oak buildings is sourced from sustainably managed forests, so the resources are replenished faster than they are depleted. Furthermore, timber absorbs CO2 as it grows, remaining locked inside the timber once harvested. In short, growing trees to build oak buildings helps reduce global warming. 

The beauty of timber is that it’s a natural barrier to sound and cold/warm air. This makes it easy to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And you won’t have to contend with noisy neighbours or the sound of traffic either. 

Grace and natural beauty are words more associated with oak construction than with metal or brick-and-mortar buildings. Oak is superb when used for features that include vaulted ceilings, atriums, and galleries. And one last great thing about timber is that it improves aesthetically with age. So, an older oak framed building will look even more magnificent, while metal and brick-and-mortar buildings may be already showing their age.

Oak Garages  

Looking for somewhere fancy to store your vehicle? Then our oak garages fit the ticket quite nicely. We have options ranging from 1-bay garages to 5-bay options. You can customise your garage in any way you wish, using the space however you like. Store multiple vehicles or set aside room for a workshop or ancillary accommodation – the choice is yours. 

We can even add an upper floored extension, providing you with even more space up top, complete with external staircase entry. To learn more about our garages, get in touch now. 

Oak Pool Houses  

If your property has a pool or you’re considering adding one, no pool would be complete without a pool house. Pool houses lie somewhere between cabana and guest houses, fulfilling both roles while serving a role dedicated to the poolside lifestyle. Pool houses can range from simple structures to elaborately designed buildings, some fancier even than some people’s homes. 

The pool house provides a place to get changed without entering the house. In addition, you can store pool toys, cleaning accessories, and other pool-related equipment. It can even be a place to host a pool party, with space set aside for food and drink. Some pool houses even have toilets and showers, making them somewhat self-sufficient. 

Oak Stables  

If you keep horses, you’ll need somewhere to stable them, and that’s where we come in. Stables have long been built using timber, and we uphold this fine, time-honoured tradition with our excellent, bespoke oak stables. Regardless of your requirements, we’ll design a large enough stable with room for paddocks, storage, and gangway space down the centre. 

Oak Framed Extensions and Garden Rooms  

One conundrum often faced by homeowners is space, or the decreasing amount of space, to be more specific. As you accumulate more possessions and your family grows, what once was considered spacious is now regarded as cramped. Decision? You could move to a larger property or save yourself some change and extend your current property. 

Our oak framed extensions are a good way to add extra living space, complete with features that set our extensions apart from brick-and-mortar or uPVC options. And thanks to our OakCraft Jointing System, we can customise your extension just as you want it. 

If you feel like making more use of your garden, one of our oak framed garden rooms is the way to go. Garden rooms are stand-alone structures that serve as a garden retreat all year long. They can be utilised for a variety of purposes, such as: 

  • Home Office 
  • Gym 
  • Place to Entertain 
  • Kid’s Playroom 
  • Home Cinema 
  • Garden Bar 

Oak Balconies and Porches  

Balconies are a great place to sit out, especially for properties that lack a decent garden. We construct balconies to the highest standard using premium-grade materials. We can fit balconies on any floor of your property and in any style you desire. 

As for porches, a porch serves as a waypoint between the outdoors and your home. Here, guests can remove shoes and coats, and umbrellas can be stored. A porch also provides extra security and helps better insulate your home.
