oak framed house in oxfordshire

A traditional oak frame in Worcestershire


Project profile

The Landings is a traditional oak framed house in Worcestershire, positioned on the banks of the river Avon.

This large, traditionally styled Worcestershire home has three bedrooms (including one master with en-suite), kitchen-diner, sitting room, garden room, utility, study and a double garage on the lower ground floor. Externally the house is very traditional in design with a projecting first floor and oak joisted balcony structure. The property has also been lime rendered.

About the frame

The frame in this family home has a central sling brace which is quite a feature in the home and prominent curved queen posts which are both traditional and cost effective in design. This fully braced house has a modern twist with a steel tie on the rear gable end as well as the more traditional elements of a ridge and oak common rafters.

About the Architect

The owner, Mr Townsend, chose an architect, Hawkes, Edwards & Cave who are experienced in not only oak-framing but also conservation too so they really understand how to maximise the impact of the frame as well as understanding about the specialism of using green oak.

We are delighted to be holding an open house event at The Landings. If you are looking to build your own oak framed house or extension, or perhaps are an architect wanting to explore the possibilities of timber framing then phone 01803 732900 to book.
