Oak Framed Buildings

How can we help?
To help us show you the best solutions for your project, please select an option below…

We create outstanding homes which stir your emotions from the first time you enter. By combining oak frame and traditional building techniques, our homes balance dramatic spacial quality with comfortable living, providing you with a connection to nature: inspiring and delighting. We strongly believe that buildings shape the way people interact with each other and we want you to benefit from that in the same way our clients do.

How does the process work?

Initial conversations

Getting to know you, your aims and your budget is our first step.


Using the information and ideas we’ve shared during the first meeting and our conversations, we produce a design and guide budget for your approval.

Agreement & Planning

Once you’ve given your feedback and we’ve fine tuned the designs, we submit them for planning.

Detailed drawings

Detailed drawings are produced (by us or your own architect if you prefer) and a fixed price quotation is provided. No hidden extras.


We offer a ‘turn key’ service, dealing with every aspect of the build from initial design to completion of the build in the South East of England. Elsewhere in the UK we are able to provide oak frame and glazing working with your chosen builder – an ideal option for self builds.

From idea to reality…

This video shows one stunning house from design concept to beautiful reality. Whether your ideas are modest or ambitious, we can provide either a full turnkey service or a design and supply of the timber and glazing. It’s up to you!

“How our customers feel is as important as what we make”

Bringing the outdoors, inside.

Our spaces invite you in and encourage you to explore, as much as you would when you are walking in the woods…beyond the first trees at the side of the path are the shadows and spaces around and the trees beyond which beckon you in to explore the forest.

At Living Oak, we take pride in being a small ’boutique’ company which achieves great things. We specialise in the design and construction of bespoke, oak-framed luxury extensions, homes and garden buildings. Designs can be traditional, modern, or a blend of the two. We can also design and supply the oak frame only – ideal for self-builds.

Being a small business with family values at the heart allows us to devote more attention to you as a client and helps us deliver the highest quality of oak workmanship, just for you.

Our Projects
The selection of projects shown here demonstrate the different ways in which oak-framing can create space, warmth and light. Every oak-frame you see has been expertly project-managed from start-to-finish to the client’s exact specifications. The result is a pain-free transformation into a beautiful and invigorating living space.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

"We were very impressed with the high standard of work, communication and conscientious attitude of all the people involved with our oak framed extension built by Living Oak. We would not hesitate to recommend the company"

"Our oak framed extension looks just as fabulous as the first day we completed and changes with the seasons – so cosy in winter with the woodburner glowing to airy and light in summer with both sets of doors open and a constant flow from the garden…it is becoming a place of very many happy memories, thank you."

Lorna Curry

Thames Ditton

"I have been delighted to work with Living Oak. From the outset their design advice was excellent and they really helped us think through what we wanted to achieve with our budget. The oak frame itself is quite magnificent, providing a stunning family living space on the back of our home. I would highly recommend Living Oak!"
