Dramatic oak frame features to a modern self build

Whatever the scale of your plans, or the size of your budget, Castle Ring Oak Frame can help you build your dream home. Take a look at this project we were involved in near Hartlepool. On the face of it, a traditionally built modern self-build but by incorporating some wonderful eye-catching green oak features, the house has been transformed into a standout design.

The house was designed and built by local firm Wearside Contractors who invited us to make and install the two oak porches and upper floor glazed gable with balcony overhang. We came up with a dramatic solution to a tricky engineering problem to keep within a strict budget and a tight time schedule.

Careful coordination was essential to ensure the seamless integration of the masonry and the oak, and after three weeks in the workshop, the frames were ready. We were able to complete our raising in one day and, we hope you’ll agree, the results are spectacular.

At Castle Ring, our emphasis is on individuality.  It’s about what you want – the look you want to achieve, the space you want to create, and the feel you want from your new oak framed home.  The one thing that unites our customers is they all love the look and feel of natural wood – and want a timber frame to be a stand-out feature of their new home. Whatever the scale of your project, or the size of your budget, we are here to help you build your dream house.

We are a bustling timber framing business with a wide portfolio of past projects. Over the years we’ve done it all, from porches to palaces (but mostly family-sized houses). We also specialise in workspaces and workshops. Operating from the Welsh borders, near Presteigne, we work nationwide and, on occasion, further afield. Plus, although we primarilywork with oak, we also use locally-grown larch and douglas fir.

In the world of oak framing, you don’t hear the word “affordable” very often – but here at Castle Ring, we put a big emphasis on affordability. Our prices are extremely competitive. Plus, there are plenty of ways we can tailor our work and trim our approach to squeeze into your budget.If this sounds like you, it would be great to talk:-

  • You are looking to build a beautiful, individual, interesting house (or extension, or workspace)
  • You love the look and feel of natural wood (and want it to be a focal point)
  • You have definite ideas about aesthetics and design (the stronger the better)
  • You have a builder or project manager in mind (or will take this task on yourself)
  • You are interested in the fusion between traditional framing skills and modern energy-efficient construction

Please contact us for a quick, free estimate. All we need to know to get started is:

1. The footprint of your building – how much ground it covers

2. The height – one storey, or two, or more

3. An idea of the overall style of your project – a traditional oak feel, a more contemporary post and beam style, or something in between.

So, please give us a call, or drop us an email, and we’ll get right back to you.
