Just What Was Needed...

We love the new entrance!

Oak By Design has the pleasure of working with a great number of builders and joiners with Yorkshire. Chris Smith, based in York, is one of them.

He had worked on the renovation of a mutual clients property, installing a number of oak products supplied by Oak By Design, a number of years ago.

A client of Chris’s, John Russell, asked him to provide and install an oak porch. After Chris recommended Oak by Design, John looked at the Case Studies on their website to get a feel for the types of designs they had previously done.

He found this part of their website extremely helpful, as the measurements of previous clients porches are shown.  This enables potential clients to envisage their own porches and see the proportions.

After studying the photos John saw a design that caught his eye! He chose a porch that had an extended ridge over the front of the oak porch, creating a cosy overhang.  The design for the truss had 2 curved braces within it.

The final overall width and depth of John’s at 3 metres by 1.5 metres is very similar to the one he initially liked.

John’s design has steps and dwarf walls incorporated into the design.  This created a rather grand entrance to his family’s double fronted, bay windowed red brick home.


John also chose to have the underside of the oak porch roof, over clad in oak tongue and grooved boards.

These do create a very ‘finished’ look to the underside of the roof.

There is no ‘correct’ procedure as to how the underside of the roof should look. Many people like to look at the underside of the roof and to see the back of the slate tiles.

This oak porch (york) now provides a great entrance to the property.
