Giving a Traditional Oak Frame Appearance

New Builds Oak Frame Appearance

Building a house from scratch is a fantastic way to get everything you want in your new home. But did you know you can combine the benefits of a new build with the appearance of a traditional oak frame?

'Plant ons' are a great way to give your home character, particularly if you want to ensure it is in keeping with a rural or historic area.

The process involves sawing and distressing oak pieces to look like original parts of a frame.

It can be used on any property to give an original oak-frame appearance.

The key is not going overboard.

Beams should be of the same size and ratio as would be found in an historic build.
