Happy New Year!
New for 2016 - Self Build Oak Garage Kits
We now offer oak garage kits in one, two and three bay sizes. Please visit our Oak Garage Kits page for more information.
Welcome to Made in Oak on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire borders. We design and build traditional oak frames and structures for commercial projects and private homes and gardens. Whatever the project, large or small, we can help. With quality workmanship and considerate service, we design, build and install beautiful oak frames and buildings.
Design & Construction
We use traditional joinery designs and techniques to produce our oak frames from freshly sawn (green) oak.
The techniques we employ are rooted in 13th century joinery methods and we still use oak pegs as the primary method of holding the joints together. It is this history and knowledge of joinery specifically associated with green oak that sets our work apart from standard joinery and means the craft of traditional timber framing is kept alive for future generations to learn and enjoy too.
We only buy oak from reputable suppliers and we only use FSC or PEFC certified timbers in our work. We feel very strongly that the wood we use must be from managed woodlands to encourage woodland management skills. Replanting woodland for future generations is important to us and the wildlife that is reliant on these precious ecosystems.
Our work has featured in RHS award winning gardens including those at RHS Malvern Spring, Hampton Court Palace and Chelsea Flower Shows. We have also featured in television shows such as Kevin McCloud’s “Man Made Shed” on Channel 4 and BBC Gardeners’ World and in publications including The English Garden, The Garden and The Garden Design Journal.
