Self Build and Design magazine features a beautiful Carpenter Oak extension (now for sale!) in the picturesque village of Dittisham.

A fantastic story of a holiday dream come-true; James Hyde uses an oak extension to frame the incredible river views of his Devon cottage – read the full Self Build and Design article here.

“Demolishing the newer extension to the rear and replacing this with an extensively glazed, two-storey oak-framed extension… would create an exceptionally bright space, containing a vaulted open-plan living/dining/kitchen on the first floor.

It was fantastic to see the oak frame in place, because I could instantly visualise the shape and size of the extension.”

– James Hyde in Self Build & Design Magazine

When asked what was the highlight of the project, James replied: “seeing the simplicity of construction of an oak-framed building and the dramatic effect it achieved”.

The house is now for sale with Marchand Petit, view the details here.
