Crown Oak Buildings Company Profile

Crown Oak Buildings specialise in the manufacture and supply of traditionally styled green oak timber frame buildings. The company operates throughout England and has designed and constructed numerous buildings in a range of stunning styles and designs. Oak framed structures completed by Crown Oak include homes, conservatories, extensions, garden rooms, home offices, pergolas, porches, gazebos, smoking shelters, stables, swimming pool enclosures, single and two storey garages, flooring, windows and doors.

The company also manufactures a range of self-build timber frame kits. This enables clients to receive a specified building in a packed form. Every oak timber frame structure is built within the company workshop to individual specification; this ensures that all joints are exact and numbered accordingly. Instructions, engineer’s building calculations and all the required materials that have been specified are all included within a pack.

Services

Crown Oak Buildings ensures every client is completely satisfied with the finished product and has put together a range of services to make sure expectations are exceeded. Services range from a full build package which incorporates initial building design, planning application, structural calculations, groundworks, manufacture and construction of the oak timber frame including weather boarding, electrics, plumbing, tiling and insulation of the roof. For clients wishing to carry out their own work, Crown Oak can develop a bespoke service based around individual needs. For bespoke design there are three main ways to proceed; the client can use a standard design plan, commission an architect or use the in-house design team.

Oak Frame Structures

Oak is an ideal material for timber frame structures as it is slow growing and has a tight grain, making it stronger and more durable than other timbers. Traditional methods of joints and pegs are used, this is because as the oak shrinks it dries, tightening the joints and making them stronger. Crown Oak sources the green oak responsibly from well-managed forests. Every design and build is based upon specific client requirements and products include:

  • Houses

As specialists in the design and build of oak frame houses, the dedicated team can work with a client’s own design or can create a completely new design from scratch. A 3D visualisation will be shown to the client prior to the frame being constructed. The skilled carpentry team will ensure that all components fit perfectly together by assembling the frame fully in the workshop before delivery. Oak framed houses provide character, beauty and a wow factor, as well as being eco-friendly. Timber is a natural product which is renewable and has a low thermal conductivity which improves fuel efficiency. A style or size of property can be achieved, allowing for stunning and unusual designs in modern and traditional styles.

  • Extensions

Oak framed extensions provide a characterful and valuable living space which can be utilised for a variety of purposes. Oak frame extensions are extremely popular and various designs can be incorporated ranging from oak crux frames and trusses to glazing in between posts with a glazed or tiled roof.

  • Garden Rooms

Garden rooms are a simple and popular way of creating extra space in a home or as a completely stand-alone structure. Every oak frame garden room is designed to suit personal requirements and incorporates various options to add character and style. Vaulted ceilings open roof spaces to expose rafters and an optional extra is to have oak trusses in the roof space. The garden room can be rebated to accommodate double glazed window units or take fixed windows.

  • Home Offices

A home office is an ideal solution for creating extra space, whilst keeping the business separate from home life. The structures are well insulated so that they can be used all year round and can be designed on saddle stones elevated above ground level or can sit on top of a standard strip foundation with three courses of double skinned brickwork. A saddle stone base is advantageous as the structure is deemed as a temporary building and may not require planning permission, although this should be checked with the relevant planning authority.

  • Pergolas

Pergolas create beautiful and stunning features that look good in any garden. They can be used to create a seating area or walkway and can be made from unseasoned oak or softwood.

  • Porches and Gazeboes

The oak porches can be made open or enclosed and options can include seating, tables or footwear storage. The oak gazeboes can be used for a number of purposes such as barbeque areas, seating areas and hot tub covers.

  • Smoking Shelters

Crown Oak has developed a wide range of smoking shelters which are practical, attractive and affordable. The shelters are widely specified by pubs, restaurants, hotels and places of work now that the smoking ban in public places has been enforced.

  • Stables

The beautifully designed range of oak stables includes any type of design ranging from 2 stables and U-shape complexes to field shelters and loose boxes. The stables can also incorporate 1.2m kick boards, hay stores and tack rooms and each stable bay is 3.7m x 3.7m and between 2.7m and 3.4m in height.

  • Swimming Pool Enclosures

Green oak frames are ideal for creating stunning swimming pool enclosures and pool houses which can also incorporate a gym, changing rooms and showers. Crown Oak has worked on many large and exciting projects in conjunction with various pool companies throughout the UK.

  • Garages

Crown Oak offers a comprehensive range of single and two storey oak frame garages in a wide range of styles to accommodate different uses. The single and two bay garages are extremely popular and if less than 30m2 may not require planning permission and can incorporate a secure locked room for tools or garden storage. The standard three and four bay garages can be adapted for use as offices, studios or workshops with a garage space. The roof space can also be utilised to incorporate a first floor which can be used as a guest room, office, playroom or gym. External or internal staircases, windows, balconies and roof lights can be added as optional extras.

Crown Oak Buildings is committed to providing a comprehensive range of beautifully designed and crafted oak frame structures to suit a wide range of applications. The friendly and dedicated team welcomes enquiries for all project sizes and can provide in-depth advice and information across the whole product range. Crown Oak offers tailored services to suit individual requirements and every stage of the project is overseen by the company to ensure complete satisfaction
