Oak Framed Buildings from Oak–Apple Frames Ltd.
Established in 1999, we are a family-run oak framing company based near the Somerset & Devon border in the South–West of the UK. We specialise in the design & construction of all types of oak–framed buildings, oak framed garages etc…
The directors and founders James Fraser-Harris and Andrew Crabb have come to oak framing through different routes. Andrew has over 20 years experience of restoring old oak–framed buildings and building new oak frames. James, originally a furniture-maker, has been running a sawmill specialising in oak and other native hardwoods for the last 22 years.
We have developed a characteristic Oak–Apple Style incorporating the natural grain and shape of the oak into designs, maximising the strength and aesthetic appeal of all our oak–framed buildings, and giving them an individual nature. No frame is the same!
We build anything from barns to boathouses and from log-stores to mansions. Have a look at our gallery to get a flavour of what we can do for you. If you’d like to visit the workshop near the Somerset & Devon border on the Blackdown Hills or see some of our completed projects, call us on 01823 421395.
One of our recently completed projects is the dining room and roof at The Railway Inn in Sandford. Thatchers Cider came to us with a design brief of “something special” and we hope to have delivered. It is certainly worth a visit, and the food and cider is fantastic too! http://www.therailwayinn.com
