A green oak frame oozes character and, as with many of the fine things in life, gets better with age. As the frame seasons, the timbers are an enduring source of fascination as their tone and texture change and surface shakes appear.
The carpentry team were exceptional in dealing with a number of unique challenges and elements on site – the raising of the frame was a very technical procedure amongst a very delicate, listed building. The end result is just fantastic.
