Perhaps you’re planning a new build. Maybe you’re considering a green oak extension. But have you also thought about adding an oak balcony? 

What could be a nicer way of appreciating your surrounding views than via a rustic oak balcony? Whether leading out from a bedroom to provide an extension of your room or as another way of accessing the main living quarters located on a higher floor, a balcony is both practical and looks amazing.

An oak balcony provides a wonderful al fresco spot to enjoy your property and the scenery beyond. On top of this, they add a sense of quality and look thoroughly impressive. Take for example this stunning extension to Warren Coach House. The glazed living area and balcony of Warren Coach House take full advantage of the garden and forest views beyond.

The balcony is part of a beautifully proportioned extension that doubles the size of this already lovely stone built coach house. The ample amount of glazing in the connecting room means that the natural flow from indoors to outdoors is only enhanced. The colours will also mellow over time to sit even more beautifully alongside the natural setting. As you can see, a sturdy oak staircase runs alongside the balcony to the garden below.

We also incorporated a small balcony area when building Broadoak. Here you can see a two-storey oak frame barn with a playroom, cinema room, and even a gym! This was a huge project, and the balcony not only allows for a spot to appreciate the surrounding landscape but also provides access for those wishing to enter from outside. If you’re planning on converting or building an oak-framed garage, this is also a great option to consider.
