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

Green oak garden room

Posted by Robert Fathers on Tuesday, September 13, 2011,

Its been a while since my last up-date as I've been planning and getting materials ready for my next project which, despite the heavy winds, I started yesterday!!

The garden room design will be quite contemporary despite it being of oak frame construction, and I'm trying out a few additional features to make it look extra special. Keep an eye on my progress as I add more photo's and up-dates to the blog over the coming weeks.
