Oak frames make fabulous pool bans and provide our team here with a great opportunity to showcase what an oak frame is capable of.
The extraordinary beauty of such structures when achieving large spans and single open volumes of space is evident on these pages. Traditional aisled barns, like the many thousands of such building up and down the country, are in their basic form, ideal. The main arcade posts such as those in Marley Manor pool barn, can be set either side of the pool and the side aisles used as access around the pool. Alternatively you may prefer a single large span structure such as the Normandie pool barn.
We have completed buildings with spans well in excess of 12 metres, and as to length, that is simply a matter of adding bays until the right overall length is achieved. Bay spans will typically be 3 to 4.5 metres and there is a huge amount of choice as to truss type, be it a cruck, sling brace, hammer beam, King post, crown post or Queen post; all are shown here on this website.
We have worked with numerous specialist pool architecture companies over the years to great success as these project show. We are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we are keen to be of assistance.

"Thank you for the frame that you have just finished at Rogate. It was a miserable wet day, yesterday and John and team carried on regardless. We are delighted with the overall look and also the mouldings to the members. As usual, the frame was millimetre accurate and will be easy to take forward to complete the building."Bob, Trembath Associates
"We wanted to write to you to express our profound gratitude for the excellent work you have done on our building scheme. It cannot have been easy to pick up the project from another architect when there were still a number of issues unresolved, but you have done so brilliantly and remained calm throughout, even at fraught times. We really do appreciate that you have gone the extra mile for us. We have all enjoyed working with you and have been so impressed with the quality of your work."Alastair, The Early Years Project
