3 Old Style

Kent

Self builders Sarah and Tim approached CROF ltd with their newly approved planning drawings to see if we could design an oak frame to form a large single storey area in their family home

The brief was to create an open plan living space to be used as a lounge and dining area.

Sarah was particularly keen on incorporating soft, natural curves into the design, having seen examples of our work, and asked us to “go to town” where we could!

The frame design revolves around a central sling brace truss with a curved collar, bookended by king post trusses with curved queen posts. The central purlin, ridge and wind bracing add interest to the roof space, the structure being “clad” with a sip envelope leaving the entire frame visible internally.

It was a pleasure to work with Sarah and Tim and to have helped create their dream family home.
