Overcome any obstacle with oak
Mr Johnson first approached us through our website about adding a carport to the side of his home and in front of his garage.
He owned a very professional shop-fitting company and therefore understood the main principles of what the project entailed.
So together we very quickly shared a mutual passion for the design and build.
He was a pleasure to work with from day one
The design of the frame had to be in line with the main property, which required a hipped roof. It was to sit on a masonry garden wall to one side that wasn’t parallel with the house wall.
Because of the layout of the drive, the turning circle was quite tight so a full span eaves beam was needed with no mid support posts. It was also decided during planning to add a BBQ shelter to the rear of the carport frame.
We suggested exposing the whole roof structure and the fantastic result is evident. The frame was manufactured out of square so that it sat on the reinforced garden wall, which was a challenge in itself
ALTHOUGH 95% OF OUR OAK FRAMES ARE BESPOKE DESIGNS, THIS PROJECT IS PROOF THAT OAK FRAME DESIGNS ARE VERY FLEXIBLE AND WE CAN OVERCOME ANY OBSTACLE THAT MIGHT AFFECT THE FEASIBILITY OF AN OAK FRAMED PROJECT.
Just to say a big Thanks to you and your team for the excellent work you did constructing our oak-framed car port and seating area. Given that my plot was not ‘square’ you still rose to the challenge and it fits perfectly!
