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.

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.
