Palmers Lodge, Cambridgeshire
This structure was built using Sweet Chestnut from local woodland, and Green Oak wall plates and rafters. The Oak was planked at a local sawmill with Oak from forestry commissioned felled trees. We built 2 Oak sky lights’ battoned the roof with Pine and we fixed Red Cedar shingle roof tiles. We also used Oak to build the benches and fascia, and Sweet Chestnut for the hand rails and panel cladding on the side. The Willow used to weave the panels on the face of the structure came from a local coppice, freshly for this job. The purpose of this structure was to create a beautiful open space where the family could enjoy eating and relaxing outside under shelter, an extension of the home, and connecting with the garden. We are really happy with the end result, especially seeing it with the plants and table!
