Just looking through the photos we collected of timber framed extensions it becomes clear as to how substantial they are. It wouldn’t surprise me to see some of these extension frames still standing after a thousand years or so.

What I also noticed is that timber framed extensions are more suited to certain types of property. For example, you really can’t install one on a 1930’s semi whereas they would make the perfect extension to a country house, rural retreat, stone house or period property. Even cottages look great with a timber framed extension.

Example: What a fantastic extension. Here we oak framing being used to make a superb timber framed extension...


One or two timber framed extensions I came across had a thatched roof and was attached to a building with a slate roof that had solar water collectors installed. It just goes to show you that when it comes to design a timber framed extension is extremely versatile.

Oak seems to be the most common timber used and looks fantastic when new or left untreated and weathered.

Example: Very few extensions look better with age. However, a timber framed extension usually looks even better as they get older...

Another thing you notice in terms of design is that timber framed extensions are almost entirely built exclusively with timber and glass. This looks especially great with vaulted ceilings and apexes as it means loads of light for the interior of the extension.

Example: Mix it up almost anyway you want. Timber framed extensions go with stone, brick, glass and even thatch...

When it comes to maintenance, it’s far easier and cheaper to sand down and treat with sealer every 4 or 5 years than it is to have to repaint. So whatever you do, don’t go painting a timber framed extension unless you really have to.

If you are considering adding a timber framed extension to your home then carry on as a it will you loads of pleasure for many years as well as adding significant value to your property.
