CULROY

THE GREEN OAK DEVELOPMENTS WE HAVE ILLUSTRATED ARE PART OF OUR CASEBOOK FOR GREEN OAK FRAME HOUSING.

THE TERM “GREEN” MEANS THAT THE WOOD IS UNSEASONED – RECENTLY FELLED AND STILL RELATIVELY MOIST. ONCE DRIED, THE OAK BECOMES VERY HARD AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO CUT. A GREEN OAK FRAME IN YOUR HOME SHOWCASES THE WONDERFUL SKILLS OF THE CARPENTER AND DISPLAYS THE INTRICATE AND INTERESTING STRUCTURAL MEMBERS OF YOUR HOME. THE JOINTS USED BY THE CARPENTER ARE FORMED IN THE SAME FASHION AS THOSE USED HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO.

THE USE OF GREEN OAK IN YOUR HOME CAN CREATE A STUNNING CONTRAST BETWEEN THE WARM NATURAL CHARACTER OF THE OAK AND THE SHARP CLEAN LINES OF FEATURE GLAZING. EVERY CORNER AND BEAM TELLS AND INTERESTING STORY DOWN TO THE CARPENTERS INDIVIDUAL MARKINGS TO IDENTIFY THEIR SKILLS.

WE ARE CURRENTLY DEVELOPING PROJECTS THROUGHOUT THE UK WITH SITES FROM ABERDEEN TO BERKSHIRE ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE PROJECTS ARE LOCATED IN THE COUNTRYSIDE OF AYRSHIRE.

THE DESIGNS TYPICALLY COMBINE TRADITIONAL GREEN OAK CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS AND QUALITY CONTEMPORARY DESIGN.

EACH PROJECT IS A BESPOKE DESIGN TO SUIT INDIVIDUAL CLIENT REQUIREMENTS.
