Welsh oak frame extension

After coming across a set of semi-detached properties that had been converted into one detached home, Wyn and Lesley Jones could see a lot of potential and made an offer.

The property wasn’t exactly what they were looking for, so they made the decision to add an extension. Wyn had loved the look of Welsh Oak Frame properties since he had lived in one as a child, therefore they chose the company as their partner of choice.

The plans were quickly drawn up for the extension, creating a distinctive ‘T-shape’, with the original body of the house forming the base and the extension built at a right angle. This extension nearly doubled the overall size of the property.

Along with all Welsh Oak Frame builds, traditional oak framing techniques were employed; bay structures were used for a kitchen-diner to the right of the front door, whilst a lounge area was situated to the left.

The infill panels which are found between the oak timbers, purpose-built by Welsh Oak Frame, were highly insulated with gaskets to keep the house weather-tight when the oak naturally shrinks.

The house has been completely transformed, and is now a much more convenient and comfortable size home for the Jones family. The couple, along with Welsh Oak Frame, have created a stunning, traditional-looking property within the beautiful Welsh countryside. The house stands out beautifully in the local area.

Commenting on the creation of their dream home, the Joneses said: “We consider ourselves lucky to have this house.”
