Crafting A Superior Oak Frame When comparing a genuine Classic Barn frame, you will see how particular respect is paid to the sheer quality in both design and performance. Our clients are searching for a building that is clearly incomparable by design, as well as being recognised for its heritage and lasting beauty.

We use a little more timber but the results are outstanding. We guarantee never to use quick-fit patented jointing systems sometimes found in the industry. Instead, the craftsmen take time implementing our substantial main frame joints, using traditional mortice-and-tenon and dowelling connections. Look closely, and you’ll discover we’ve added an array

What makes a Classic oak frame superior? • All of our main posts are cut noticeably thicker to enhance the frames strength and appearance • All of our large infill studwork timbers are made from oak and connected using traditional dovetail joints for stability • All of our Cat-slide barns feature impressive hand-curved centre tie beams • All of our barns stand out with our featured large curved K-braces • All of our frames and the timbers used have been generously sized throughout. We use a little more timber but the results are outstanding

of features that enhance the overall finish. All our studwork, for instance, is made from oak as standard and each piece is uniquely dovetailed into place. Our latest feature is our beautifully curved K-braces, a superior-looking brace rarely found anywhere other than in a genuine Classic barn frame.

Planning Service Easing The Process

A General Guide To Planning / Permitted Development

If planning and building regulations is required for your barn we can handle the entire process right from the early stages. Our planning consultants are experts in handling oak framed building applications and presenting them to your local planning authority, however, we are equally happy to work alongside your architect if you have already selected one. Our experienced consultants will prepare a full set of planning drawings, including location and block plans specific to your site. All the relevant submissions can be taken care of, as will any communications with your local authority. Working to obtain oak-framing approvals, they will guide your planning and building regulations applications through all the necessary stages. Our project manager will maintain close communications with our architect to ensure you are well informed. We can advise on any changes proposed by the planners and will steer your application towards the ultimate goal of a successful conclusion.

Under permitted development some of our designs can be built without the need for planning permission.

However, in many cases, consent is required from the local authority. We have put together some information for your convenience. Outbuildings are considered to be permitted development, not needing planning permission, subject to all the following conditions:

• Must be single storey with a maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of 4 metres if it has a dual-pitched roof

• Not within 2 metres of the property boundary (unless under 2.5 metres in height) • Balconies and verandas are not permitted development. Raised platforms, such as decking, are permitted development provided they are no higher than 300mm

• Outbuildings and other additions must not exceed 50% of the total area of land around the

original house*. (All other outbuildings and extensions to the original house* must be included when calculating this 50% limit)

• No outbuilding on land forward of a wall forming the principal elevation of the original house* • On designated land** outbuildings to the side of the house are not permitted development • If the outbuilding is to be built in national parks, the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Sites or within the grounds of a listed building

• To be permitted development, any new building must not itself be a separate self-contained living accommodation

Standard fee £950 + VAT which includes the Local Authority submission fees and the costs of all drawings. (For standard

applications that do not require a Design & Access

* The term ‘original house’ means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date).

Roofs & Finishes Roof Styles Choose any style roof, change the pitch or even combine two styles: there are no restrictions to the variations available to you. Our roofs have been carefully designed for strength and appearance. Designed to remain visually open on the inside with featured high-level curved ties (where applicable), our roofs carefully

continue the barn’s ‘look and feel’ up into the roof space (see page 16). From the outside, this effect continues with an extended overhang left to accentuate the barn’s roof whilst providing a little extra protection to the sides underneath. The strength in our barn roofs is achieved by using timbers which are uncompromising in size and spacing (175mm and 400mm spacing). It may take a little more timber, but the results are worth it.

Catslide Our Classic Catslide range has particular design techniques placed

into several of its proportions. We purposefully kick out the angle of the lower roof section and take it low for the enhanced effect whilst maintaining a ridge height of under four metres which can be a key factor when assessing the need for planning permission.


Log Stores


Each of our various styles of log stores have been given a sweeping roof pitch to ensure they stand away from the barn at a generous

depth. Hand-curved braces tenoned into posts beautifully enhance the overall appearance.

Non Roof Tied

Full Length Selecting the most appropriate covering to complete your Classic barn is important. This is

why we broaden your choices to include any type of slate, clay or timber shingle tile available from our extensive range of suppliers.

Variations in ground conditions, frame and roof sizes, and features such as doors, walls and tiles all have an influence on the price we quote.

Please contact us to start this process. In the meantime, here are some price examples to show you what to expect.

Request a price specific to what you have in mind: • Describe the barns size, style and usage. • List any features (i.e doors, log-stores, partition walls, windows, loft storage etc). • Or simply describe your ideal project and we will provide suggestions & ideas to suit.

We look forward to receiving your request.

Bespoke Service One Of A Kind From personal touches to interesting and wonderful creations, the Classic Barn Company’s bespoke service can maximise the design potential of oak. The secret to a successful bespoke project is not just in the appearance but also in the ability to control costs, and this is where experience comes into play. Your designated project manager can deal with planning and design on your behalf or work alongside your architect if preferred. Our design service can employ all of the technical specifications incorporated in a bespoke frame and implement this efficiently throughout the cutting stages to deliver your project on time and to the accuracy that is required when dealing with the complexities of bespoke work. We encourage seeking our advice from the beginning. There are no obligations but it may be important that you receive this advice from our experienced team of framing specialists prior to committing funds towards planning and building regulations. This preferred route ensures the efficiency of the frame’s components so that the project is both practical and cost effective. We can take care of the entire project so you can relax and watch your one-of-akind creation evolve.
