This was a particular challenging project for a client we had previously built a studio and office barn for. They had a lovely house but the kitchen was a bit dark and not well connected to the other main areas of the house. The difficulty lay in the shape of the outside of the house where the kitchen extension would ideally go. Part of the house was two storey with areas of roof coming down to first floor height and the new extension needed to fit into an ‘L’ shaped section toboot.


With some careful design input we managed to design a structural frame with a generous vaulted roof section for the kitchen extending out to add a dining/living area with double doors out to the garden and a fixed glazed gable providing much needed light. It has transformed the way the clients enjoy the house and made the kitchen a pleasure to be in and entertain from. They said it has literally become ‘the heart of the house’.



See it.
Feel it.
Love it.

What our customers say about us

"Having decided to extend our cottage we approached Hartwood Oak, by recommendation, and asked them to not only create a building that would complement the existing house, but to give us a statement kitchen/family space. The design and construction has more than achieved what we were after and everyone who visits are taken aback by the craftsmanship and result, as our we."

"Hartwood Oak built us a large garden room, garage and porch. We love the result, lovely team to work with and would highly recommend them to anyone planning an oak project".

AMB, West Berkshire

"We are over-the-moon with our new oak garden room. Hartwood handled the entire project from design, planning through to build and project management and were professional throughout. Their on-site team were a pleasure to have around and were friendly and respectful at all times. The quality of their work is clear to see and the room has really added some wow factor to our cottage."
