Oakwrights HQ: An Oak-framed Sunroom

With the success of our Oak framed extensions and oak orangeries in mind, the Oakwrights team began construction on a brand new build situated at the company’s base, expanding the existing offices to include the new GreenRooms HQ and meeting room.

Construction of the new build, an oak-framed sunroom extending from the main building of the office at ‘The Lakes’ in Swainshill, began in January of 2015 with the Oakwrights site team assembling and fitting the frame on location at the offices.

This build features oak rafters from the wall plate to the roof lantern ring beam; however a popular (and cheaper) alternative uses softwood panelling and plasterboard for a clean white finish.

The Sunroom was designed by the GreenRooms by Oakwrights team, featuring a high quality oak frame and a slightly vaulted ceiling with a sizeable roof lantern window which allows a wealth of light to flood the room, creating both the illusion of height as well as a light and spacious atmosphere inside the meeting room.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Overall space size: 5523 mm (5.5m) x 8375 mm (8.4m)
  • Area of the space: 46.2 m2 / 497.2 ft2
  • Span of oak beams over space (inner post to inner post): 5507mm
  • Roof Lantern span: 2384 mm
  • Posts: 155 mm x 155 mm

Moreover, the build also features beautiful Oak French doors and a kiln-dried Oak Frame Lantern, both designed and made by GreenRooms by Oakwrights; as well as this, the sunroom is protected by our GreenRooms unique face glazing system, ensuring the glass units will not be warped or move as the oak settles over time.

Although our sunroom serves (for the most part) as a professional space, our oak sunrooms have the potential to be enjoyed in a variety of ways; customers use these timber extensions for anything from a leisurely lounge, dining room, office space and even as a great place to grow plants. Our sunrooms use passive solar planning that ensure the sunroom is kept at a comfortable temperature all year round, whilst allowing you to enjoy surrounding views from the comfort of your home. The GreenRooms sunroom is the perfect space to eat, relax, and enjoy.
