Oak Framed Buildings Hampshire
Oak Frame Buildings Hampshire – In late 2018, Horton Barns were contacted by a private client. They lived on a quiet rural road, on the outskirts of Bishops Waltham. The couple wanted the company to build a 3 bay garage, and also an oak orangery to their existing house. The garage was also to have an upstairs which could act as storage and a possible office space.
The building was to be made from a large oak frame. This would be made off-site in the Horton Barns Workshop and then transported for final assembly on site in Bishops Waltham. Work on the site commenced in early 2019. Initial groundworks were undertaken, to create the base for the buildings. Both buildings were located on the site, but at opposite ends of the garden,
A concrete slab would be the next phase, which would really start to show the couple a true reflection of the amount of space this building was going to take up. Whilst this was being undergone, work on the timber frame panels was also underway. Having the oak frame erected into place, the timber frame panels were then aligned accordingly to give the structure of the walls for the building.
The buildings structure wasn’t made complete without its final component, the roof. Horton Barns built and fabricated the roof on site, whilst up on top of the building, as each component was slightly different than the last. Erected in under a day, the main rafters gave a true sense of the scale of this ‘garage’. Having completed the structure of the building, all was left to do was clad the walls in a stained softwood weatherboarding, and to install the oak windows and doors, to complete the build. There was also a bespoke roof lantern from Duplus, which was delivered pre fabricated and lifted into place, to give a lovely feature to the orangery.
