Oak framed barn with raised eaves
This is the build log of our latest building – an “extended-eaves” oak building in Hamptworth, Hampshire.
This oak frame is 6m wide x 7m deep with a roof pitch of 35° to provide a self-contained living space. The eaves are raised by around 600mm to provide greater height in the loft area. This makes it perfect for use as an annexe, air B&B or home office.

This barn is built in close proximity to a couple of oak trees so the foundations had to be piles. It was an expensive job but worth it in the end!
The taller eaves allow for a lower roof pitch so the overall height isn’t too much for planning permission.
Externally you can see a bespoke oak balcony with wider than normal staircase, all in European oak. The stable door completes the look.
Spanish slates are fitted on the roof along with a couple of Velux windows. The wood burner in the loft keeps it nice and cosy in the winter months.
