Our Oak Framed Garden Office Kits

Our timber-framed garden room kits are a versatile solution for both traditional and modern homes. Oak timber is such a classic choice that has been well loved in England for centuries, and with the near-limitless design capabilities offered by Oak Frames Direct, your garden office is sure to fit in. 

Each garden office kit comes complete with pre-cut oak timber and jointing, as well as a detailed instructional pamphlet to guide you through the building process. Our kits are made to be DIY-friendly, so even if you are not an experienced carpenter, you should be able to see to the assembly yourself. However, if you would prefer to leave it to our team of professionals, they will be available to fully install and quality check your garden office.

No matter your assembly preference, your new oak frame garden office is made to last. We favour a mix of oak species, including Quercus Robur and Quercus Petraea. Oak, in all its forms, is one of the strongest woods you can use for building. Its tight grain makes for a sturdy structure that only solidifies and strengthens as it ages. This coupled with the tannins found in the wood’s genetic makeup give it natural pest and decay control.

Why Use Oak Frames Direct?

We at Oak Frames Direct have been a trusted and leading provider of oak frame builds for over 30 years – that level of time dedicated to one speciality can only result in quality you can rely on and a finished product that is made to last even longer.

  • Q-Mark Certified Range: We are proud to say our garden offices, as well as the rest of our range of oak timber frame kits, are Q-Mark certified, which means our design and production methods have met the industry standards set by BM-TRADA. This certification means you can guarantee the best quality products and services from Oak Frames Direct. 
  • Sustainably Sourced Materials: All of our oak frame kits, including the range of garden rooms and offices, are made from oak that has been sourced from managed woodlands in France. The trees grown there are monitored and maintained, to ensure the optimal height, thickness, and most importantly, straightness – all of which mean less wood is wasted when lumbered and later cut for our frames.
  • Clean cut, every time: Our arsenal of state-of-the-art tools boasts the Hundegger CNC machine, which is unmatched in how precisely it cuts timber. This allows us to provide accurate cuts that perfectly match your bespoke specifications for your garden office. 
  • Professional Timber Grading: Once all our materials have been picked, cut, and prepared, our team of experienced graders come in and check each and every piece for signs of wear or potential faults. Their attention to detail hones into the tiniest knots and cracks, barely visible to the naked eye. It is important to us that not a single piece of your kit is imperfect.

How Much Does a Wooden Garden Office Kit Cost?

The price of your wooden garden office kit will depend on its design, as each one we make is bespoke and unique to the customer’s individual specifications. The best way to cost your project ahead of time is to request a bespoke quote free of charge. We aim to answer all queries as quickly as possible. If you require information on financing options, our team will be happy to offer assistance.

Will I Need Planning Permission for a Garden Office?

Acquiring planning permission and building regulations can be extremely difficult, depending on the size of your project and where you plan on erecting it. However, our garden office kits are usually free from such permissions. Thanks to their single-storey nature, our range of garden office kits generally fall within the guidelines laid out for permitted development. 

If you plan to build your garden office too close to your home, which would class it as an extension. If you include any kind of plumbing that creates a self-contained living space, even in your garden, will require various permissions. Additionally, if your kit is to be assembled on designated land, you may also require permission beforehand. 
No matter what, it is always better to check the status of your project and existing plans, and save a nasty surprise later down the line. If you need any assistance obtaining planning permission, our team is here to help
