|Hand made solid oak doors beautifully compliment any home whether contemporary or period.
I’m not talking about doors that are mass produced in a factory but hand made to a clients bespoke specification. We cater for the idiosyncrasies of older properties as well as contrasting with modern materials in high spec new build houses and barn conversions.
Oak for our ledge and braced doors is carefully selected by our team of experienced craftsmen. They choose only the very best English or European Oak in either character, prime grade to reflect the tastes of the client and to best suit their property.
We particularly specialise in wide boards using only three or four planks in each door. We then add three horizontal braces and optional diagonal braces. An alternative hardwood for interior doors is elm, which like the character oak is most popular in barn conversions, cottages and farmhouses. It is spectacularly beautiful with a swirling grain, cats paws and flashes of green and purple. Prime grades of oak and elm are equally suited to town houses and new build properties alike.
