Stylish oak frame porches are a lovely addition to any home and come with practical elements as well as plenty of style. With gorgeous exposed beams and wonderful design features, oak frame porches are a great way to update the front of your house.

Oak frame houses are a growing trend in the self build arena but if you can’t stretch to a whole new build, why not try touches of oak in the form of oak frame conservatories,  an oak frame garage, or a simple yet striking porch.
