Keen self-builders fall for the aesthetics of green oak
Self-builders, Robert and Sharron Jebb, built their current property from scratch, yet wanted the additional space from a new garage. They wanted a garage that would be aesthetically pleasing and in keeping with their existing property while being well-performing for storing their belongings and so invested in an oak-framed garage from English Heritage Buildings.
On the advantages of choosing an oak-framed extension, Robert, 45, comments: “I have always been a lover of oak and the rustic aesthetics of the material. We also decided to use oak for our garage because it was in keeping with the property which was built using traditional materials.”
The Creative Director has found a number of advantages to using green oak as opposed to other traditional materials. He comments: “The aesthetics are a major advantage over other materials. Not only this, but oak actually lasts just as long, if not longer, than materials such as brick. If you’re thinking about brick just because it’s a long-lasting material, then look into oak frames. It’s a no brainer for us really!”
The erection of their two-bay garage took just three weeks to be completed. On his experience of the build, Robert comments: “English Heritage Buildings were perfect. They provided us with a great service in all aspects from planning and design to finishing stages. They were very efficient, providing the product at the right time and in the right sizes making the whole process really easy.”
