General design advice for Woodwrights oak frames:

  1. Consider the frame as early as possible in the design process.  I am happy to advise.

  2. An oak frame should both define and respect the floor plan of your space.

  3. Simplify the floor plan to make for a more elegant frame.

  4. Ideally. cross-frames should mark divisions between different living areas in a large open space.

  5. I can supply 3-D design drawings showing the frame as it will appear in situ.

  6. Concentrate oak frame where it will be seen and shown to best advantage.

  7. Please feel free to call me to discuss design.
