Oak Framing

Cottage Oak specialise in the construction of structural timber frames, known as oak framing. This centuries old construction method enables the creation of beautiful unique buildings that have been proven to last centuries from small decorative structures such as porches to garages, roof trusses, small extensions, sun rooms and oak framed barns

We offer a tailor made timber construction for your specific needs, using traditional structural joints such as mortice and tenon with kiln dried pegs. These are made using traditional and modern methods.

We are happy to work alongside your own contractor or we can suggest or provide you with a builder to carry your project through from start to finish under our supervision

Barn Conversion

Stable Cottage renovation
Bethlehem, Carmathenshire
This derelict old cowshed and stables have been lovingly restored, keeping as many of the old features and character as possible. New materials were carefully chosen to keep in character with the property such as oak flooring, stone flagstones, ledge and brace doors. We also introduced modern technology such as under-floor heating. This is an on-going project so look out for further updated images.

House extension / Oak frame glass link

Oak Frame Extension
Pentregwenlais, Carmarthenshire
The oak framed link joins the new extension to the existing house. The curved oak post supporting the oak trusses in the link create a vaulted ceiling and with both sides glazed in to solid oak frames gives this entrance hallway a light and spacious feel. The main extension has an oak trussed roof and purlins, keeping the character flowing from the oak framed link. To the rear of the property is a swimming pool extension with oak trusses and full height oak frame picture window.

Oak Framed Garage

Oak Double Garage
Manoredilo, Carmarthenshire
This is one of our 2 bay oak framed garages. The main structural frame is made from green oak, jointed using traditional joints with oak pegs, with treated softwood infill partition walls, treated softwood roof rafters and cladded using feather edge boards. These garages come in various designs e.g 2 or 3 bays with attic space for an office, log stores, closed partitions and garage doors for a workshop. We have a design to suit every need.

Oak Framed Sun Room

Oak FRamed Sunroom
Idole, Carmarthenshire
This oak framed sunroom is south facing and makes the most of the sun all day. With so much glass it makes the most of the garden and the views, bringing the outside in. This sunroom currently has a dining table and a couple of sun loungers in it, but can be used as a lounge, a reading room or just somewhere to relax and watch the world go by.
