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.
