Farmhouse Renovation

Oak Covers – Farmhouse Renovation

Andrew Smith Building Contractors, from Milnthorpe in Cumbria contacted us with regards to supplying them with a variety of oak for a farmhouse renovation.  They required Oak Covers, an Oak Beam and Oak Flooring for their customer’s home in Stainton near Kendal.

The recommendation came from their architects, WDP Architects in Kirkby Lonsdale. Their customers were very specific with regards to the finish they wanted and came to visit the showroom to discuss their requirements.

After looking at various Oak Flooring samples, Oak Covers and Oak Beams they knew the finish they wanted for all the products. They were aiming for a reclaimed or aged look. Extra processes of wire brushing the oak, together with other hand finishes ensured they achieved the exact look they were after.

The solid, air-dried oak beam was used above the wood-burning stove on the stone chimney breast.

The Gallery

Oak Covers were used to cover RSJ’s in the Games Room and the Hallway, and 2 Sided Covers were used in all the rooms above the windows to cover the concrete lintels to give the impression of oak beams.

The covers are made to order and therefore regardless of your RSJ, a solution can be found to create an oak beam. To make life easy, Oak Covers are supplied with a mini installation kit including matching oak pellets, a drill bit and a tin of matching spare wax.

The oak flooring was laid over under floor heating and was aged to be in keeping with the rest of the house.

If you require further information or have a project in mind that requires oak to disguise and therefore enhance your home, please don’t hesitate to call 01423 593794 for details.
