Adding an Oak Framed Extension to your Home
At Living Oak we specialize in beautiful and functional Oak framed extensions. An oak framed extension is a welcome addition to
your home, orangery, conservatory or barn room. The space can be as large as your planning department and/or budget will allow. It can be single or double storey and can incorporate as much glass, brickwork, french or bi-fold doors as you want.
It can have a pitched tiled/slate roof with roof windows or a flat roof with a roof lantern, please visit our FAQ for further Oak framed extension guidance.

"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"
Walton On Thames
"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."
"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!"
