Cart Lodges, Carports, Garages and Traditional Oak Construction
June 8, 2014
Traditional Oak Construction Ltd, is an Essex company specialising in the design, manufacture and installation of cart lodges, carports and oak-framed garages.
The cart lodge – or a cart house or wagon house as it is known in other parts of the world – is the forerunner of the modern garage. Used for housing horse drawn carts, and often featuring a hayloft above, the original cart lodge could be an open fronted, gated or closed wooden structure. In many ways a cart lodge is the epitome of English rural charm.
Recent years have seen a rise in the popularity of cart lodges. Oak framed cart lodges are elegant structures that combine the practicalities of a carport or garage with the opportunity to add office or workshop space in the loft area or incorporated into the design as an adjacent room. Cart lodges can be used to house several vehicles in lockable garages or in covered bays.
Traditional Oak Construction Ltd, work closely with their clients to design the cart lodge, carport or garage to suit the style of the home. Cart lodges are free-standing buildings that can be constructed to any size or style. L-shaped cart lodges are often used to create a sheltered courtyard area at the front or side of houses with wider driveways.

Based in Wethersfield, Near Braintree, their expert builders and carpenters work across Essex and the surrounding areas. They offer a complete building service including design, planning and construction.
