Our solid green oak frames are hand crafted and traditionally built to last, with front jowl posts cut from solid 250 x 150mm oak. We use draw dowels so all the joints pull in tight on final installation with the use of the tapered, hardened oak pegs provided in the kit. The main uprights at the front and rear are 150mm x 150mm where they meet the dwarf wall and are jointed to a solid 150mm wide sole plate timber. Across the front elevation we cut a curved tie beam from 250 x 150mm oak for this size porch and scale this up if we are building a larger kit. This gives the porch real elegance and creates a feature entrance.The roof timbers are also in 100 x 50mm solid oak and are fixed with the supplied hex screws onto the large oak ridge beam. We can build the porch to your dimensions as required and can accommodate a variety of designs, whether you are looking for a simple canopy or larger porch to incorporate bench seating or glazing etc. The photos in the listing show examples of some of the porches we have constructed and supplied to customers, we have many more photo examples and testimonies from happy customers also. We have a very simple pdf file available that identifies key measurements required for your build. Hat you receive for this listing price.
The listing is for a hand made oak porch in the same style as the photos. The kits are designed to be simple to put together and typically the only fixing required is through the rear rafter into the wall.The listing price is based on a porch kit with a footprint up to 2000mm width and 1500mm deep, although we can of course build larger. Side height 1200mm to the top of the top plate. The style for the price listed is for a porch kit with large front curved jowl posts and feature curved tie beam with 2 spindles with one curved brace to the sides. The side spindles have a nice stop chamfer added for classic detail and the rest of the frame is supplied sanded finish. Oak of course protects itself so there is no need to treat further, unless it is aesthetic - some customers like the oiled look. It is important to ensure any oil used has no varnish content. Our standard roof pitch is 45degrees and the kit is designed to be placed on 900mm dwarf brickwork wall but we can adjust measurements and also pitch as required to suit your design.
Please note at under 1500mm depth from wall there is space for only one curved brace on the side elevations. And at less than 2400mm external width there is no room to add extra front curved braces. We can add extra braces and spindles if there is space to do so and can price these for you. We are also able to add sprockets to the roof line to give an elegant flick to the end of the roof if required. We can build to any design if you have something else in mind.We also supply frames for other outdoor structure as well as pergolas again handmade to order. We are always happy to offer advice on selecting the right design and look forward to speaking to you. All our solid oak frames are delivered with a sanded finish and in kit form for simple construction.
Please note there may be marks made to the frame in transit on leaving the workshop. We always recommend using a dilute oxalic acid solution to clean up the green oak after install. This will help with any water staining as well as ladder marks etc.
