How An Oak Frame Extension Adds Value to Your Home

For those seeking to maximise the potential of their property, an oak frame extension could be the way!

Is the kitchen too small? Is there a need for a dining space or additional lounge area? What you want from the space, should be at the forefront of your decision when expanding it. Be it an opening area for bi-fold doors to embrace an outside eating space, or to have a place to read, this use will drive the choice and style of your extension. As the hub of the home, the kitchen can offer the best scope for extending into a beautiful open space that adds value and would be useful to buyers of any stage of their life. But it’s making it a wow space that will give it a unique selling point. With open plan living and space now more achievable due to better insulated buildings, the possibilities are plentiful. Whether you choose to focus on extending the kitchen or add a brand-new room for entertaining, a natural oak extension gives you the flexibility to create a valuable and highly aesthetic addition to your home. 

Extensions offers a highly effective way of increasing your living space while connecting your home with your garden. An oak frame home extension will add value and style to your property. Choosing to build in oak, however, makes the investment even wiser by further increasing the resale value. Many consider oak to be a luxury, so a slightly bigger investment during the build will more than pay for itself later down the line. Oak possesses certain qualities that simply make us feel warm and cosy, but it is also strong and reliable. It is thanks to these qualities that the popularity of oak extensions has never dwindled. An oak framed extension is quicker to build – oak frame extensions are manufactured and pre-assembled in our workshops by our skilled craftsmen, while groundworks and other preparatory building work take place on site. The oak frame extension is then delivered to site and assembled in a matter of a few days or weeks, depending on the size.

Oak is eco-friendly. The carbon captured from the atmosphere by oak trees is bound into their fibres over many years, before being chopped down and then made into a house, where it will remain permanently. Oak doesn’t require large amounts of fossil fuel to produce, much industrial reprocessing, or chemical treatments which are harmful to the environment, as some other woods or materials like brick and concrete require.   

We have years of experience in creating stunning oak framed extensions and other oak buildings. For more information on oak frame home extensions or to get the ball rolling on your extension, please get in touch with us – we’d love to hear from you!
