Location: Newbury, Berkshire
Type of timber building purchased: Double-bay timber carriage house with a timber garage.
We design and install premium quality timber garage buildings all across the UK, which means that we are often called upon to install garages in sensitive locations. This specific double-bay timber carriage house was to be built in a highly sensitive location. We had to work hard to meet planning requirements. Eventually, the local authority approved a roof that matched the house which is why we installed a custom-made traditional clay roof, indicative of buildings found in Berkshire.
The local council also approved a weatherboard oak front finish. We installed this timber double-bay carriage house over four years ago, and as you can see, the building has aged beautifully. The colours of the clay roof have mellowed out, and the wood has faded to a natural finish. We pride ourselves on our outstanding craftsmanship and the quality of our materials that really do stand the test of time.
