Two Bay Garage

Bromyard, Herefordshire

Martin was looking to replace a tired and crumbling concrete outbuilding with a 2 x bay garage with upstairs storage space.

Rather than going for one of the many oak framed garage kits, the constraints of the site (it needed to be set into a bank with a retaining wall) meant that a more bespoke solution was needed. Having seen at first hand Rob and his team erect a full oak frame in a day for one of his neighbours, Martin approached Castle Ring Oak Frame for a chat about ideas and costings.

A hybrid design was agreed on, using green oak for the exposed primary elements of the structure, and douglas fir for the roof trusses, purlins and rafters. Rob coordinated all elements of the project using a local builder contact to provide the footings and tanked blockwork retaining wall, ready to receive the frame. Once the frame was up, the garage was roofed with reclaimed clay tiles, douglas fir weatherboarding, and finished off with a rustic douglas fir staircase.

“After getting a lot of quotes for building a new two bay garage (with lofted room over it), we were lucky enough to meet Rob after a neighbour had used him for a timber framed building project. We were impressed with what he had done there, and having visited his own amazing home near Presteigne, we engaged Rob’s services and were lucky enough to be able to see the whole project come together. Rob’s planning and attention to detail were excellent – a true craftsman down to the nuances of each joist and piece of oak. The whole build was great, traditional pegging and jointing, wood lapping and door were expertly put together on an individual basis. Rob and a builder friend did everything, so it really was planned, drawn up, measured, cut and built by the same hand…even the external staircase was meticulously thought through. A great personalised piece of work.
Needless to say we are very happy with it and would endorse Rob’s work to anyone interested in a timber framed building. Just see his own award winning home to see the quality of work you’ll receive. ”
