7 benefits of oak framed single storey garages

Just as an acorn grows into an oak tree, your dream build begins with an idea that we can help turn into a reality. Here at Oakwrights, we view a garage as an extension of your home. So, if you’re interested in building a single storey garage made from oak, read on.


Storage for your wheels
Would you like to create a space to store your prized classic car, or create an area to polish your bikes away from the wintery elements? A timber framed garage will keep your wheels dry while providing a strong and durable structure that’s built to last.

Multifunctional uses
The role of a single storey garage doesn’t just stop there. You can tailor a design to meet your exact requirements. If you have a passion for gardening, enhance your garage by incorporating a quiet potting area. Could your home benefit an external storage area? Add a secure space to your garage design to stow away your possessions. Whatever your requirements, create a timber framed garage that works for you.


Natural in appearance
We understand the external appearance of your garage matters. That’s why we’ve spent time establishing a range of stunning, single storey garages that’ll blend into any landscape. Do you live near a town? The Kenchester is a versatile timber framed design that’ll compliment any house build. Perhaps you own a country cottage? Take a look at The Cotswold.


Eco-friendly properties
In a time where sustainability is of the highest importance, oak framed garages are not only natural in appearance but are also friendly to the environment. Did you know oak is a carbon neutral building material with insulating properties? Rest assured all our oak is taken from a sustainable source so you know your Oakwrights single storey garage is eco-friendly.

Saving you time and money
Your garage can be constructed quickly, either by our specialist team or supplied as a self-build kit. This process reduces labour costs so you can save your money for those all-important finishing touches. What’s more we understand life changes. Our range of single storey garages can be dismantled and moved elsewhere.


Adding value to your property
Parking spaces can be few and far between in certain areas which gives you the opportunity to maximise your property’s worth if you have the space to do so. It’s suggested that building a garage has the potential to increase the value of a property by 11 percent. Couple this with a beautiful timber frame and you could be reaping the rewards in the future.


Planning permission
Is this holding you back? Here’s a secret: your dream garage may not require planning permission. The installation of single storey garages is rising because some designs may be built under permitted development as they fall within the elevation height restrictions. This means you could start building sooner than you think. Why not get in touch with one of our oak frame specialists to talk through your plans?
