Robert Fathers Hi and welcome to my blog! Through my blog I plan to share some of my current projects and show you how oak framed buildings are made and constructed. Oak is a beautiful, strong and sustainable material. If you're thinking about using green oak for a new construction within your home I hope my blog will be of assistance to you. By following my blog you'll be able to see how I work and my level of detailed craftsmanship and finish. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and should you wish to discuss any project you have in mind please contact me for an informal chat about your plans. I will be very happy to help you in anyway I can. Kind regards, Rob

Hexagonal oak framed gazebo, East Yorkshire

Posted by Robert Fathers on Saturday, January 14, 2012, In : Hot tub hexagonal gazebo

New project nearly complete. This has been a challenging bespoke designed gazebo to house new garden hot tub. The design was especially complex due to its size and design specification, low roof pitch required detailed modifications to original architects drawing.

Oak Garden Room - 2nd stage completion

Posted by Robert Fathers on Sunday, October 16, 2011, In : Oak Garden Room 
The second stage of the build is almost complete. Since my last up-date, we've insulated and tiled the roof, and installed the garden room double doors. First fix electrics in place and floor almost done. All glass windows will be installed this week and flooring and internals then progressed to final fix stage. 

The garden room is starting to look the part, making a great statement and additional living space to this home.

This isn't any old log store, this is a green oak framed log store !
