Oak Framed Building – Hampshire
Horton Barns were contacted by a private client, to design and build an oak framed building and a single bay closed garage. The building was located on the cusp of a rural hampshire town of Curdridge. The oak framed building was to be habitable and provide space for something to live, so included amenities such as a bathroom and kitchenette. It had a contemporary feature end, which had a large open glazed face. The walls were constructed from timber frame panels, along with painted softwood doors and windows, in a complementing light gray colour. The garage was constructed from timber frame with glulam beams for support, with a grey garage door to match.
On the outside, both buildings were finished in an oak weatherboard, with a machine made clay tile roof. Both sat on a concrete raft with a brick base. Work began in early summer of 2018 and was finished in December 2018. The project was managed and constructed by Horton Barns. They undertook the design and planning of the build. They then completed the groundworks and erected the whole frame. Sub-contractors were brought in for specialist jobs, but under the instruction of Horton Barns. The build ran smoothly and finished on schedule and on budget.
