Natural in appearance
The appearance of an outbuilding matters a lot. You would like to choose a design that naturally blends with the design of your house. Oak framed garages are available in many traditional and contemporary designs that naturally complement any house build. You can view more finished examples of garage buildings here.

Eco-friendly properties
Sustainability and environment preservation are very important factors to consider while building any new structure. Timber-framed outbuildings do not only look natural in appearance but also they are environment-friendly. Oak is a carbon-neutral building material making it the best option for creating eco-friendly structures.

Saving you time and money
Oak garages can be constructed quickly. You can choose a garage company or buy a self-build kit. Either way, the construction process is very fast. You can save labor costs and other finishing costs. Another best thing is mobility. You can dismantle the structure and take it to the new location.

Adding value to your property
An oakgarage with a room above can maximize the worth of your property. This can also solve the parking issue as parking spaces can be few and far between in certain areas. A garage has a great potential to increase the value of your property. A small investment in an outbuilding today can reward you in the future.
