An oak framed orangery will be a great addition to your home. Just look at our latest project for a customer in Staffordshire:
This 4m x 4m solid oak framed orangery has been made with a substantial 8 inch post and beam oak frame and features large picture windows to three sides. Careful placement of the mullions (intersecting points) ensure uninterrupted views of the garden when sitting in the living/dining room.
Our clients wanted to be able to enjoy their garden more fully with a light and airy garden living space. And their oak orangery was designed to meet their specific requirements and gives them a gorgeous space to entertain friends and family all year round.
To future-proof the orangery, the orangery’s oak door was made 8 inches wider than a standard doorway to allow for wheelchair access, along with the addition of a ramp and a path surrounding the structure.
A Light & Luxurious Space
Along with its large picture windows, this oak framed orangery benefits from a large oak lantern, which allows lots of lovely natural light to flood into the room. The exterior of the lantern was fitted with an aluminium roofing bar system to reduce maintenance and an electrically operated roof vent to allow for effortless ventilation when needed.
The roof of the oak orangery incorporates a hidden gully so no guttering is visible, giving the garden room clean lines and a contemporary look.
Inside our Oak Framed Orangery
The walls and ceiling have been fully insulated to retain as much heat as possible during the cooler months. And along with a solid oak window self and oak skirting, this orangery features a built in bespoke oak bookcase, producing a stunning internal space.
How our Oak Extensions are Glazed
All of our glazed oak structures and extensions are made with 8 inch planed (PAR) air-dried oak, hand-drawn oak pegs and our direct glazing system. This glazing method can only be carried out on air-dried oak frames and only a handful of oak framers have the oak-framing knowledge and skill to glaze this way. We don’t use the plant-on method used by many other oak companies. Why?
Because, even though rebated direct glazing is a more complex and time-consuming method than surface mounting, glazing this way keeps the beauty of the exterior of the oak frame and hand-drawn oak pegs on show, rather then covering it.
