Another successfully completed Oak Framed Garage project for some lovely clients in the heart of the New Forest.

Planning & Design

We were asked to undertake a full design, planning & build package for a large single garage/carport with internal log-store at the rear, in Lyndhurst, Hampshire.

After meeting and discussing what type of outbuilding was required, initial hand drawn sketches were provided for consideration, details tweaked and a final design was approved. The detailed construction drawings where then completed, including relevant structural engineering specifications. Any possible issues with nearby trees were discussed and then a full online planning application was made to the New Forest National Park Authority, with all relevant supporting documents.


Each of our bespoke oak frame garage designs has been tailored to fit the landscape & the immediate surroundings, in both scale & choice of materials used; so it wasn’t unexpected when planning permission was successfully granted. In this case the green oak frame was clad with waney edge Douglas Fir, together with mellow handmade bricks and reclaimed clay roof tiles, all well chosen to match harmoniously with the existing cottage.


On site each element of the build was completed with as little inconvenience as possible to our clients’ busy lives and routines. Unfortunately we did suffer with a large amount of rainfall during the majority of the build, as did the rest of the country, but as we were fixing the last remaining pieces of cladding the sun came out and the air warmed sufficiently to let us know Spring was on the way.

The clients are delighted with their new oak framed garage which is a really lovely addition to their home.
