S. HARLOW PERIOD OAK - Bringing Medieval Craftsmanship To Your Front Door 

Ashford based oak frame property specialists, S. Harlow Period Oak and their team of master craftsman only specialise in the extra special - using the highest quality oak and traditional building methods, inspired from original oak framed buildings in all their constructions.

Celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year, S. Harlow Period Oak are experts in bespoke new builds and restoration projects. They design, hand craft and erect each property, working closely with the customer every step of the way. The family-run business prides itself on exemplary customer service, appointing project supervisors to each job, offering advice and support and everything else in between, so private clients and developers alike can be confident they have the right team of specialists on board, to make your dream home a reality.

The company’s ethos is to only ever use the finest quality oak from managed forests. Each member of the highly skilled team holds a deep rooted appreciation for the old oak tree and a great respect for the traditional methods in which it has been used as a building material over the centuries. Oak is a very durable timber, which is why it has stood the test of time. This is why S. Harlow Period Oak emulates the work of medieval carpenters, using traditional hand-crafted pegged joints, developed by medieval carpenters and framers. Each piece of wood is hand-picked, to provide extra strength in certain elements of the house. For example the main structural posts (Jowl posts) of the house are picked from the butt of the tree so the grain runs in the right direction, to reinforce the entire build.

“All of us here at S. Harlow Period Oak are extremely respectful of the traditional way in which oak framed buildings were crafted and are proud that we continue to use the same methods in the frames that we produce today,” commented Shaun Harlow, Managing Director and founder of S. Harlow Period Oak. Shaun continued, “Because we use the same methods as the carpenters of old, we have an in depth knowledge and understanding of original oak framed buildings and specialise in restoration by replicating the original timbers. We have worked in partnership with conservation officers on numerous projects on a wide array of buildings including churches, barns, mills, and houses. We have also surveyed, numbered and dismantled entire buildings, carried out repairs in our workshop and reassembled them back on site. We have lifted, straightened and repaired many buildings near collapse. This area of our business always gives us an enormous sense of achievement, knowing that we have given a beautiful oak framed building another lease of life.”

With a portfolio of Manor, Vernacular and Barn & Cottage style designs, clients are invited to choose the style that would best suit their tastes or. Alternatively the oak frame designers at S. Harlow Period Oak would be equally willing to discuss a totally bespoke style project.

“A lot of people are of the opinion they could never afford an oak framed property,” commented Shaun Harlow, “but often a bespoke new build can be more affordable than restoring an old property, which customers also find surprising. We are always happy to talk clients through their options. If they have a vision of their perfect home - we can develop their ideas, then design and build it for them!”

Customers are also most welcome to visit S.Harlow Period Oak’s framing workshops in Shadoxhurst, one of the largest framing yards in England, which has the capacity for three houses to be in production at any one time. Visitors will be able to see medieval carpentry methods in practice, carried out, by the in-house trained team of master craftsman and will also have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their very own dream project.
