Our Oak Framed Cart Lodge Kits

We understand the importance of choice when it comes to installing a new feature in your home environment. Our range of cart lodge kits caters to all requirements with custom design options available, such as the number of bays, additional upstairs rooms and the inclusion of doors or windows, to ensure that your cart lodge kit is fit for purpose.

Every Oak Frames Direct oak cart lodge kit contains all the necessary components to construct an outbuilding which is both durable and beautiful. Your kit even includes pre-cut green oak framework and jointing, as well as comprehensive assembly instructions. Or, leave the construction to our experienced team of professionals, to ensure the best end results.

Regardless of your design specifications, your timber cart lodge will be sourced from the highest-quality oak. The oak we use is renowned for its longevity, strength and natural, timeless beauty. Based on our expert knowledge, we favour the Quercus Robur or Quercus Petraea species of oak, which provide optimal quality for manufacturing purposes. They also offer a sustainable farming method and better value for money due to the larger volume of oak available.
