About Us...

Oak Habitat is a small, family orientated business, with a core belief of traditional values. We maintain a friendly, personal approach. We have an intrinsic understanding of oak framing, and the broader construction industry as a whole. This comprehensive knowledge allows us to offer a full build and complete project management service.

All our oak frames, from design to conception, are modelled, and even made, in the traditional British framing way. Each frame is bespoke, and hand crafted using age old Medieval techniques.

What is Oak Framing?

Oak Framing, Post & Beam Construction, Timber Framing and Green Oak Framing are some of the many terms ascribed to green oak timber framing – the ancient craft of building structures from freshly cut oak timber or trees.

All of our oak frames are made by hand in our traditional workshop in the Cotswolds.

All our frames are "connected" using traditional framing joints, and secured using oak dowels.

The frames are designed, around you, the client, reflecting your needs, your budget, your personality and your home. Our experience allows us to cater for any desire, and we can offer solutions and design suggestions to aid you in this process.
