In this post we’re taking one more look at a project we completed last year – a large self-build near Devon named Broadoak. It is set in an old woodland overlooking a lake with views toward the coast over the Somerset hills.

Broadoak, English Oak Buildings

The brief was to create a multi-purpose building that incorporated both the functional and the leisurely. The ground floor barn area of Broadoak is used to house farm equipment and a wood pellet fired boiler, while upstairs is designed with a social spirit in mind with a cinema, games room, gym and community room.

We also use the bespoke English Oak Buildings SIPS panels throughout, as well as oak feather-edge cladding, painted bespoke hardwood doors and windows, and pencil bead paneling. The floors are oak and we used either fixed or applied glazing. The result is an impressive build that offers multi-functionality, while not compromising on the aesthetics of the build as a whole.
