What makes Border Oak Outbuildings so special?

The finest materials - Our outbuildings use the finest Restoration Grade green oak, high quality softwood and our weatherboarding is selected for its stable moisture content and low knot ratio. We have qualified wood graders, so anything that isn't up to the mark is rejected. We apply the same rigorous quality checks to our outbuildings as we do to our house projects.

Border Oak is fully FSC and PEFC accredited - unlike almost every other oak frame company, Border Oak can assure our clients that the oak we buy is from renewable resources.

The finest craftsmen - the main structure of our oak Outbuildings are handmade in our Herefordshire workshops. Many of our carpenters have been with Border Oak for over 20 years.

Our experience - we have nearly 40 years of experience in designing, making and erecting these buildings and with that experience comes the knowledge of what works and what doesn't - we've usually encountered any issues before and already know the solution.

Our service - as a family business, our customers' experience and the service we provide to them is so important to us. We understand that having the disruption of building works can be stressful and that good communication with our clients is critical to the success of any project - no matter its size or type.
