Choosing a timber framed porch

Traditional, contemporary or unique -what suits you?

A new timber framed porch can transform the look of an existing house adding interest and value as well as providing a buffer between  indoor and outside space; helping to maintain the desired temperature inside and save energy. Carpenter Oak can construct a frame to any design of your choosing or to your own design; an inexpensive way to improve your home and one which need not have planning permission. Timber framed porches can be traditional or contemporary in style but ultimately Carpenter Oak can design something truly unique for your house. Sketch some ideas down and come and meet with one of our frame designers at The Framing Yard. Oak frame porch prices vary dependent on design and crudely speaking the amount of timber and number of joints.

An oak porch con be a great introduction to your property adding ‘kerb appeal’ and unifying the feel of oak through your home particularly if you have oak beams or a Carpenter oak extension to the rear.

A porch can provide a sheltered entrance or extend your living space outside, see below for some of our completed designs. We can recreate any of these for you and/or design specifically for your home.

Will I need Planning Permission?
A porch which is no greater than three square metres in area, three metres in height or within two metres of any boundary with a highway can be built without planning permission under the Permitted Development legislation.
We do advise that you check planning legislation in your area as there may be additional provisos e.g. in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
