Upper Floored Oak Buildings

Making full use of the roof space has proved a popular option with OakCraft buildings.

The generous specification and quality of the oak used by the craftsmen means that a sturdy upper floor can be provided, complete with double-glazed dormer windows, full height entrance door and an external staircase. These rooms have been used for home offices, storage, children’s retreats, craft workshops, ancillary accommodation – the list goes on and on. OakCraft designers have created many buildings with an upper floor.
