3 Bay Car Port using Seasoned Air Dried Oak Beams
3 bay car port with oak frame complete

Bay Car Ports

Tradoak was commissioned to make a 3-bay carport through a word-of-mouth referral who knew we produce and deliver great work.

The decision was made to have the frame semi-open and made from seasoned air-dried oak beams, we then designed the frame and created a set of 3D frame drawings and visual representation to be agreed upon by the client. 

3D oak beam frame planning

The frame was fabricated and sanded at our yard in Sheffield park and then delivered to the site in a kit form, the frame was supplied with pegs and the instruction drawings to put the beams together.

The base and brickwork were already laid for the frame.

The process of putting the frame together starts from the bottom plate and works upwards.

We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this project and look forward to seeing this structure in 100 years’ time as it ages and grows in character.

If you have any questions on framing or just need some advice please contact us.
