Now for something very different! This green oak frame will support an extension to the ‘deck’ area of this waterfront chalet. The image here shows how the legs extend into the beach and down to the septaria below.

Beach chalet extension

The legs will be covered by the tide twice daily, hence natural oak is the perfect choice as is durable and environmentally sensitive (Treated softwood is full of chemical nasties!).

The staircase is also to be in oak, but by using kiln dried timber we guarantee some degree of stability to distortion.
