Understanding oak frames.pdf Types of oak frames.pdf


Alpha Oak is a small, family orientated business, with a core belief of traditional values. We maintain a friendly, personal approach. We have an intrinsic understanding of oak framing, and the broader construction industry as a whole. This comprehensive knowledge allows us to offer a full build and complete project management service.

All our oak frames, from design to conception, are modelled, and even made, in the traditional British framing way. Each frame is bespoke, and hand crafted using age old Medieval techniques.

The frames are designed, around you, the client, reflecting your needs, your budget, your personality and your home. Our experience in design and build allows us to cater for any desire, and we can offer solutions and design suggestions to aid you in this process.

Since our conception in 2007, we have approached every project with one simple vision, to design and build oak frames that will compliment and enhance any home, whilst offering uncompromising service and value.

What is green oak framing?

Oak framing involves designing and making structural frames that support floors and roofs, to which an external envelope is added. All our frames are "connected" using traditional framing joints, and secured using oak dowels.

Each frame is individually designed around the client, hand crafted by our team, giving each one an unparalleled uniqueness. Features often include open "barn style" framework, truss and post cross frames, and large areas of direct glazing.

Internal spaces are left open where possible, with the oak framing in evidence everywhere.

Modern technology is employed in the external envelope and roof structure, with necessary accommodations for the green oak frame. This allows our buildings to meet all industry standards and building regulations.
