Why Choose to Build Oak Extensions?
Choosing A Real Oak Frame is a Green Choice
Our houses reflect us. They show the world who we are and who we want to be. This means that it is hugely important that we take care when constructing or improving the buildings we call home. The materials we choose for the structures we build are very important. When you choose an oak extension, you are choosing wisely not just for yourself, but for the planet. Oak is a wonderful green building material.
Homeowners who care about people and planet know that many buildings are constructed from materials that pose a range of problems. Oak is not one of these materials. It can be better than carbon neutral over the course of its lifetime. By analysing the lifecycle of oak, we can see how CO2 emissions can be reduced by building with wood.
And, of course, oak extensions are built to last and endure through the ages. This means they reduce the need for future construction work, which is perfect for a property that you want to pass down and wonderful for future generations. What is more, oaks longevity also means that it is a green choice, since reducing the need for future construction will also reduce the carbon cost of our houses.

Oak Extensions on Buildings Can Bring Many Lifestyle Benefits
As mentioned above, oak extensions are structures that can enhance your lifestyle and add value to your life in a range of different ways. We have plenty of tips for how you might use one. They might, for example, bring benefits by:
- Providing additional space for nuclear families or wider family groups to come together, allowing for multi-generational living.
- Offering the means to expand existing home companies, or making it possible to work from home.
- Providing more space for homeowners with an oak conservatory to enjoy their hobbies, or work on developing a range of useful new skills.
- Creating a garden room which will bring you closer to the natural world and encourage you to make full use of your outside space.
Oak Extensions are a Practical Option
No matter why you are considering choosing an oak extension, they can be a practical choice. Oak extensions can add value to your property – which means they can be a sound financial investment.
What is more, well-designed oak extensions can save you money on your household bills. By making best use of the sun’s light and heat, using tips for effective passive solar design, we can use an oak extension to reduce the amount we have to spend on lighting and heating our houses. This is especially the case when the design is suited to the region and the specific site on which it is located. Our case studies demonstrate how we design to suit the specifics of each individual home owner’s site and needs.
By blending the join between home and garden, oak extensions can also facilitate practical measures to live more sustainably. A garden room can blur the line between inside and outside, making it easier for you to make full use of your outside space.
Oak Frame Buildings Are Aesthetically Pleasing
Not only will oak frame extensions enhance your lifestyle and add value in a range of practical ways, but they can also be an incredibly aesthetically pleasing option. Oak is a beautiful, natural material: warm, tactile and visually stunning. Its appearance will only continue to improve over time.
