It is the porch of a house that creates the first impression and an oak frame porch can instantly change the character of your home.

Some timber frame porches are created as grand entrance ways designed to impress but mostly a porch is a practical addition to shelter from the rain or to store muddy boots and parcels from the postie. Adding a porch is a relatively inexpensive way to add curb appeal, space and value to your home. 

Whether you want a simple canopy, an enclosed area to keep out all of the elements or a welcoming entrance room, we can design a porch that fits with your lifestyle and property. Just send us a rough sketch and dimensions of what you’re after and we’ll give you a no obligation design and free quotation.

You don’t normally need planning permission but it’s best to check as permitted development rules do vary a little across the country. Below are some examples of porches that we’ve designed and built for other people to get you started.

We worked with a local Scottish architect, engineer and contractor to create a beautiful home on the edge of Aberdour golf course, with stunning views across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh.

Everdene House

The owner of this self-built home had been impressed by the curved timbers in a show-frame that showcased our hand-crafted oak frames at the South West Homebuilding and Renovating Show.

Upside-down House

The house was designed as an upside-down house with a main living area upstairs to take advantage of the views of Cheddar reservoir.

The Quarry

This unique abode, ingeniously built into the hillside overlooking Golden Cap, offers a captivating upside-down design.
