Our latest oak frame project is taking shape in the workshop at the moment, and as you can see from the photos, it’s quite a sizeable endeavour! The team is working on three tall, single storey extensions with truncated hip roofs for a client in Surrey.

What’s a truncated hip roof, you might ask? Well, a truncated roof is a sloped roof that has been cut off at the top to form a flat, horizontal surface. And a hip roof is a roof which slopes upward from each of the four sides of a building, requiring a hip rafter at each corner. This is different to a gabled roof, which has a sloping peaked roof from two sides of the building that meet and form a gable at each end.

It was through the use of our 3D Modelling service that we helped the client envision the actual finished oak frame, as well as being able to take a 3D tour of the site.

We’ll keep you updated with finished photos of the project!
