We were approached by this client who had been provided with a specification and costs for a garden room kitchen extension but were frankly left a little underwhelmed by the design. Hartwood Oak Buildings were able to take a fresh look at the project and come up with a far more adventurous design that exceeded their expectation of what was possible. 


We were able to get planning permission for the extension and then built it as well as carrying out extensive upgrading of the main house. The clients joked later that this refurbishment work was largely a waste of time as they spent all of their lives since in the new oak framed kitchen!

The client / contractor relationship has endured to the point that one of the clients’ sons recently came to us for work experience in woodwork where he did very well indeed.



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."

AG, North Hampshire

"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."
