Oak Garden Room, Walnut Tree Cottage, Suffolk

Oak Garden Room, Walnut Tree Cottage, Suffolk

About Project

This oak garden room forms a bright and cosy transition space between the house and garden.

Maximising Light

This oak framed extension features traditional timber frame construction, with pegged joints and curved braces. The direct double glazing system maximises light into the room. Because we incorporate the glass directly into the frame, the airtightness and thermal performance are improved too.

Traditional Materials

This traditional Suffolk home is built of red brick, and the adjacent barn features the classic East Anglian black horizontal timber boarding. By incorporating a red brick plinth below, and black horizontal boards above the oak frame, this extension sits comfortably within its context. Oak is a natural material, and if left untreated, weathers down to a silver grey colour. This allows it to sit quietly alongside other natural building materials, such as brick, render, clay tiles and slate.

Jonny is very professional and worked well alongside my builders. We created a garden room that has become my favourite room in the house. The green oak is warm and raw, the movement and colour of the wood is beautiful. It is a substantial room and so impressive. We get comments from guests all the time. I enjoyed working with Jonny and his team and I’m thrilled with the results. He is a talented craftsman and his work is stunning.
