Light, cosy, warm By working with a natural, living material like oak, crafting a building by hand and using the structure as an ornament we get closer to the essence of 'constructing place' and reinforcing our connection with the natural environment

Oak framed houses have been around for centuries, so whether you are after something that pays particular homage to the beautiful oak framed houses seen in English villages and towns, or something completely different with a more contemporary oak frame look and feel, Sackville Oak frames have the design and build experience for all your oak frame dreams and ideas.

We have designed and built beautiful oak Extensions, Garden Rooms and orangeries to create a beautiful living space to listed properties, as well as new builds, connecting existing buildings to your outdoor space. Perfect for hours of entertaining, drinks receptions, as well as a feeling of being connected to the outdoors in those wet, Winter months.

Oak framed Extensions & Garden Rooms are a great way to connect your home to the outdoors. Building with oak and glass creates a wonderful light and bright space in your home; due to the pleasing aesthetics of the contrasting timbers with glass, as well as the heat efficiency having used the latest oak framing and glazing technology, these spaces are becoming very popular and one of our more sort after frames.

For the past twelve years this company has been called InSitu Designs; this oak framing company has grown from strength to strength; trading on reputation and quality craftsmanship. As part of our journey moving forward, from the beginning of April 2017,  the company name changed to Sackville Oak Frames.

Stephen, Private Client, Kent

“I can’t tell you how pleased we are with the roof – it really is teriffic, and absolutely makes the place. Thank you for doing such a great job. We are very appreciative.”

Tim, Private Client, Kent

“Amazing, the oak frame is great. Thank you so much with all your help with the other elements of the build, much appreciated”

Gavin & Sue, Private Client, Surrey

“Stunning, I can’t believe it, love it! Best decision I’ve made in a long time deciding to use you. Your attention to detail is unreal, the craftsmanship and quality is incredible, thanks so much, you have done an amazing job.”

Andy & Ruth, Private Client, Kent

“We simply couldn’t have wished for more. What you have done is very clever and a mark of experience far beyond your years! In fact, all aspects have far exceeded our expectations, craftsmanship, the like of which I didn’t think still truly existed. We have both been left a bit dumbstruck by the whole thing if I’m honest”

Gavrielle, Private Client, Kent

“The amount that I’m delighted with the beautiful art work that you have created is enormous. I especially love the upstairs rooms, the vaulted ceilings and the detail of the windows. Every peg. I even more especially love the entrance hall. It is better, more artful, and more special than I was able to originally envision. So in all, not only am I honoured to be living in a building that you’ve created, but am also very lucky that I found you and that you built my home for me.”

Laura & Casper, Private Client, Kent

“I am very happy with your extraordinary creation, thank you!”

Karen and Damien, Private Client, London

“…thank you so much for your skills, your energy, your smiles and your passion. It was a dream come true.”
