- Oak main frame and link frame for a major extension and renovation of Pen Nebo.Brief:
- To translate the Architects drawings into working carpentry drawings which would accurately detail the joint designs. The trickiest part of the design translation was the link frame.
- To bring the main frame round to face the best views up the valley - the Architects designed the link with a bend half way down its length, see picture no 7 (link frame laid out in yard)
This created a few challenges in joint design and roof geometry.
The main frame was constructed first so that the site between the main frame and the existing property could be surveyed and carefully measured.
Greenwood Oak manufacture all the framing at our yard in Cheshire and deliver it to site for assembly.
