Green Oak frame extension with Hipped Roof















We had to battle the elements erecting this hip roofed extension but apart from the discomfort of working in the rain, it went up really nicely. I like using this dragon tie detail to stiffen the corners of a structure; they give the hips such sure footings as well as adding a really pleasing internal aesthetic.















As always, its nice to see a finished frame clean and bare against a blue autumnal sky, but it's nicer to go back a few months later and see it all finished and looking like home. Again we worked alongside Poore and Sons of Truro on this sensitive extension to a characterful old home, and look forward to going back when they've finished to see the completed project.
