Stand-alone Oak Framed Garages

We supply and deliver Oak framed garages for you or a builder to quickly, easily and cost-effectively build on your premises. We supply direct to end users, builders, architects, designers, framers and wholesalers.

As well as the Oak frames, we offer Oak trusses, Oak cladding, Oak doors, Oak windows and a whole range of joinery accessories so you can fully customise your building.

Before leaving us, our Oak garages are assembled, erected, coded and de-assembled to ensure that all pieces are present and correct. All of our garages are built using traditional craftsmanship hand techniques rather than the use of large machines which pay no attention to individuality.

You will need a builder to construct foundations for your Oak kit and to also erect the Oak structure.

  • Planning permission if needed. We can supply drawings and information to help you along this process.
  • Designing and getting prices for your oak framed garage and accessories.
  • Purchasing the Oak framed garage. (These two points are what we're for).
  • Laying the foundations.

  • The final and most important step of all... using and enjoying your oak garage.

Why Use Oak?

Nothing beats that old world charm afforded by our quality solid oak beams. Oak has been the preferred choice for architects, builders and designers, traceable back in time for generations. Now very much in vogue, the blend of Quality Oak in modern architecture gives the best of both worlds... Solid, dependable yet stylish.

A room containing Quality Oak beams exudes an ambiance and class unobtainable from other building materials. Our Oak is grown to stand the test of time, and the enjoyment will be inherited by generations to come.

All our Fresh sawn green oak beams are PEFC certified to ensure that we do our bit for the environment.

Oak framing has enjoyed a long tradition in the UK, being the favourite home building method for the majority of people, designers and architects for centuries.

These day's its very rare to open a home building, architecture or renovating magazine and not find a case study featuring the use of oak somewhere, and the warmth and appeal seem to keep growing.

Oak buildings today offer an unusual mix with very traditional techniques and often combined with very modern materials. There is just something about the look, feel and smell of oak which is innately appealing to both traditionalists and modernists, and people love the fact that it’s such a naturally long-lasting material.

Oak tree's are harvested when they are around 80 years old. Each one will produce roughly 15 ft3 (cubic feet) of construction grade oak. Almost all of the oak used in British green oak homes is sourced from sustainable plantations in France and Germany, with companies replanting many trees to compensate which is why we are both FSC and PEFC certified to ensure we do our bit for the environment.


Why buy from us at Oak Timber Structures?

With all staff having previously worked in the timber industry, our knowledge of oak, from the harvesting of the Oak tree to the final finishing touches to your oak structure, is second to none.

Our oak beams are individually sourced from some of Europe's finest Oak forests and selected for quality and beauty. With our passion for Oak being at the heart of our inspiration and it is mirrored in the craftsmanship that goes in to each of our unique Oak framed structures designed and built to your desire.

A lot of Oak framing companies now use heavy duty machines to churn out each building as fast as they can put the order on; not us. We hand carve each joint ourselves to make sure you get the tightest fit to each joint we make, this is why our quality gets us repeat work and recommendations.

We believe that the strongest, most durable and most beautiful buildings are a result of selecting exactly the right timber. Working timber in this way, especially oak, requires skills and expertise which cannot be replicated by a machine.

"The only way to produce great work, is to love what you do"


Delivery of Your Oak Structure

How will your oak structure be delivered?

Due to the size and mass of Oak required for most buildings and structures, more than likely you would have a dedicated lorry delivering your oak structure to you. We will always do our very best to communicate with yourself to get the delivery there at a time and day which suits you. Off-loading equipment is essential on site due to the weight of some of the Oak beams.

Delivery time – How long will it take for your oak structure to be delivered?

We are currently working on an approximate 8 week (from drawing sign off) lead time from agreement of your final drawings.


Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need planning permission?

Not always! One and two bay Oak framed garages more than often do not need planning permission. If they are under 30m2 of floor area coverage and under 4.0m in ridge height they tend to not need planning permission. However, we would always advise you to check with your local planning authority first.

The link below will give you some fantastic advice and we are always here to advise you through this.

We can also supply you a planning permission pack of detailed drawings, all printed on A3 sheets.

Build cost?

It's always good to shop around when getting quotes for a builder to actually assemble your Oak framed structure or building. Builder’s assembly prices will differ depending on the size of the product and so they will always want to see the plans and assembly instructions before they quote.

What if there is a problem with my Oak kit?

We take quality control very seriously at every step and our craftsmanship speaks for itself. In the extremely unlikely event that there is some kind of problem with the kit which is our fault, we will sort it out efficiently and quickly.

"Where you find quality, you will find a craftsman, not a quality control expert"
