Traditional oak framed house
Surprisingly to some people this is a fully oak framed house in Knaresborough with a conventional brickwork exterior. It aptly demonstrates the flexibility of design when using a oak frame as the primary structure for the building.
Owning a large riverside plot had a distinct advantage for the owners of a 1950’s house with a desire to build their dream oak framed home without moving too far. Build it in your back garden! And what a beautiful timber frame house they built. The interior of this oak framed house is very traditional with sling braces aplenty, a stunning kitchen diner with aga, and a gallery landing making this house the perfect place to escape and unwind.
The clients were keen to create a light and airy home with warm and homely spaces that were significantly enhanced by the large timbers. In many rooms the oak frame comes well into the living space and yet never feels as though it impedes it.
