Oak frame porch

Traditional, contemporary or unique Oak Frame Porch – what suits you?

A new timber framed porch can transform the look of an existing house adding interest and value as well as providing a buffer between indoor and outside space; helping to maintain the desired temperature inside and save energy. Carpenter Oak can construct a frame to any design of your choice or a design of your own.

Porches offer an inexpensive way to improve your home and may not need planning permission. Timber framed porches can be traditional or contemporary in style, ultimately Carpenter Oak can design something truly unique for your house. Sketch some ideas down and come and meet with one of our frame designers at The Framing Yard. An Oak frame porch price may vary dependent on design and crudely speaking the amount of timber and number of joints.

An oak frame porch can be a great introduction to your property. Adding ‘kerb appeal’ and unifying the feel of oak through your home, particularly if you have oak beams or a Carpenter oak extension to the rear.

A porch can provide a sheltered entrance or extend your living space outside, see below for some of our completed modern oak porch designs. We can recreate any of these for you and design them specifically for your home.

Will I need Planning Permission?

Adding a porch to any external door of your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided:

  • The ground floor area (measured externally) would not exceed three square metres.
  • No part would be more than three metres above ground level (height needs to be measured in the same way as for a house extension).
  • No part of the porch would be within two metres of any boundary of the dwellinghouse and the highway.

We advise that you check planning legislation in your area as there may be additional provisos e.g. in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Come and visit our workshops in Devon and Scotland to see examples of our work, talk about your project and see the team who craft the frames. Keep an eye on upcoming events for opportunities to meet us in person and visit Carpenter Oak homes.
