Solid Oak Garages
Cedar Nursery is pleased to offer bespoke oak framed garages that combine traditional building methods with the strength and durability of Britain's favourite wood. Using our free online garage creator, you can choose the individual components to make up your ideal garage, workshop or carport. We can supply the oak frame as well as many different styles of roof to match your individual needs. As you design your building there is an up-to-date price displayed for each stage, allowing you to keep control over the budget.
We only use Green Oak in all our construction, including frames, tie beams, braces, soleplates, studwork, cladding and rafters. All joints are precisely cut and use the traditional method of draw pegging to hold them in place. Softwood options are available on request.
Our standard range all have ridge heights under 4m, and 1 bay and 2 bay garages are both under 30m2. Our oak framed garages can be fully erected by us, including foundation and roofing installation, or, delivered in kit form with the necessary instructions and wooden jointing pegs.
Fresh Sawn Oak
Oak is a common and iconic symbol of strength and endurance and has been an integral element of architectural history for many centuries. Its inherent sturdiness and durability make it an ideal material for use in construction, while its appealing grain markings and beautiful colour make it an aesthetically desirable finished product.
Most of the oak used in Britain today comes from Europe - mainly France where it is farmed as a commercial crop and where its planting, growth and harvesting are carefully and reliably managed. The whole operation is sustainable and ecologically sound and we can take comfort in knowing that oak will be enjoyed as a valuable raw material for many years to come.
Our oak framed structures are built using the same traditional 'post-and-beam' construction methods used by our ancestors. Each individual joint is precisely cut to ensure a snug fit and is securely held in place with oak pegs.
We also let you choose precisely how involved you wish to be in the construction of your building. From the supply of the basic frame and assembly instructions right through to an all-inclusive build, the management of your project can be very flexible and determined during initial discussions.
