Testimonials

We employed English Oak Frames to design and build a green oak extension to our 17th Century home, comprising a large kitchen, utility room and bathroom. We are delighted with the result, it is a lovely space to live in. The quality is high with some lovely design touches. English Oak Frames were easy to work with, nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend them and would certainly use them again should we take on a new project.

Paul is inspirational and extremely experienced; he listened carefully to my requirements and then quickly set to work designing the most beautiful self-supporting structural garden room, which would cause no further impairment to the existing building, as he knew that this would be an important factor in gaining planning permission for a 400 yr old property.

I couldn’t recommend English Oak Frames more highly. We called in the help of Paul at the early stages of building our barn style home. After worrying that the finished result would still have a ‘new build feel’, Paul took us in hand and came up with the perfect design to give our home an authentic barn look which exceeded our expectations to the point where visitors ask if it’s a converted barn!!

Having not worked on a traditional oak frame building before, English Oak Frames were very helpful in working through the construction detailing and methodology as well as arranging visits to built examples. The frame was prepared and erected on time, with Paul Hicks available to deal with follow on queries. It would be a pleasure to work with English Oak Frames again.

I have used English Oak Frames on a number of jobs to add a contemporary addition to a historic building. I have found them extremely helpful, with great ideas and experience. They have stuck to their original quote and managed the jobs efficiently, sticking to both budget and programme. I would have no hesitation recommending them.

We asked English Oak Frames to provide a ‘turn key’ build and that is exactly what they did. They were brilliant at liaising with all the contractors needed for our build. At every turn they were communicative and on schedule. Above all English Oak Frames listened to our needs and met every one of them, I would have no hesitation in recommending this firm.

After seven months I have a quality building that has received a lot of attention and sits comfortably with its surroundings. I can recommend this company and already have done so.
