An Amazing Addition
‘family and friends enjoy the surroundings”

An outdoor oak bbq area was the idea of Johnathon Baxter, a freelance designer situated on the outskirts of York.

His garden contained some outbuildings and the idea was to create a welcoming, family orientated oak bbq area.

First, Johnathon had to address the issue that he could not exceed the height of the orginal building.  As the roof line was too low, the idea was to dig down and create steps leading to the kitchen area.

The pitch of roof and appearance have to be inkeeping with the surrounding buildings.


The process included a site visit to discuss the overall dimensions and height of the proposed dwarf wall.  The oak BBQ area to was have a side entrance stepping down onto a stone floor.  The oak frame was designed to incorporate a number of curved oak brackets, so that it would create strength.

The gable end design was also important to match the exisiting building, there this was created in softwood and painted.

The entire frame was created in Oak By Design’s workshop to make sure all the components worked.  Using traditional mortise and tenon joints, each piece of oak was labelled and palletised ready for delivery.

Johnathon loved the finished project.

Creating an oak bbq area seemed a good idea. Now, especially in the summer, we can entertain and relax whilst admiring the oak framework at the same time!
