Carpenter Oak created the timber frame for this light and airy home, set in stunning Gloucester countryside. This is a classic example of how a hand crafted oak frame enables flexible, healthy, open plan living spaces, while the impressive structural frame takes centre stage as the feature of the building. Although a new build project, timber frame buildings immediately evoke a sense of history – through the centuries-old skills used to create the frame in our Devon workshops, coupled with the reference to historical cathedrals and barns which are still standing after hundreds and hundreds of years. While these enduring qualities are reason enough to invest in a timber framed house, Carpenter Oak frames instantly return a high value – Savills introduce this property as “A Beautifully Presented Carpenter Oak House”.
