Oak Staircase and Beams
Kelly and Dave Chandler were looking for solid oak beams for the barn they were converting on the outskirts of Tadcaster. Their builder (Leon Shipley from Shipley Builders in Selby) recommended Oak by Design.
Initially, Kelly came into the showroom, and after falling in love with the oak she chose the finish of the oak she wanted. Her requirements were for two 6 metre long beams they required for the through kitchen/diner/lounge in their new home.
Due to the long length of the beams, there was a risk of the Air Dried Oak beams moving. Richard visited the property in July last year and everyone agreed that we would make the ‘beams’ as covers. This involves making a 3 sided cover, normally used for covering RSJ’s or unsightly beams or pipes. They are made from Kiln Dried Oak which is extremely stable and ideal for the long lengths required.
