Oak Buildings Hampshire
Oak Buildings Hampshire – Weybrook Farm, in Sherbourne St. John. Horton Barns were approached by a private client in spring 2016. They wanted to create a 4 bedroom family house on their pre-existing site. Sherbourne St John is a rural village to the north of Basingstoke. The area thrives on community spirit and is mostly populated with neighbouring farms.
In April of 2016, work on this 3 floored home commenced. Horton Barns was in charge of foundations and all groundwork. After the concrete foundations were laid, work commenced on the Timber Frame Panel Erecting. The panels were pre-fabricated at our workshop in Southampton, by our team of carpenters. These were then transported to site by us, where they were then all erected in under a week.
Once the timber panels had gone up, the house started to take shape, and soon on various other elements could start to be added. Roofing trusses were quickly positioned and all the bespoke oak frame work was lifted into place by crane. With the help of sub-contractors, the red brick façade started to be put up. Also, the clay tiled roof covering more than 200 square metres was efficiently constructed.
With the main structure in place, works could start on the interior and secondary exterior elements. Treated Oak windows and doors were put into place and all services were channelled into the many rooms of this home. The property was laid out with traditional oak flooring and had a bespoke modern kitchen, fitted with a dual range oven.
Over the 3 floors of this property, oak has been a major part of the build, for structural and aesthetic features. More than £50,000 of the traditional material was lifted into place during the build. The house was landscaped by a subcontractor under the management of Horton Barns, where we then handed over the keys and signed off the build to the client.
