Oak porches or pergolas are the perfect feature to welcome people to your home, or across your garden?


Classic oak framed porches can help you create extra space and protect your home from wind and weather.  While the front door stays open, enclosed Oak Porches ensure that your house stays warm also framing the doorway to give minimal shade from sunlight and rain.  As well as the installation service Townsend offers three basic Porch designs in kit form:

  • Free-standing posts,
  • Canopy/Hangman and
  • Post/Dwarf Wall.

Fashioned to use draw-pegged mortise and tenon traditional jointing, the posts, beams and braces slot in place and are fixed in the time served method of using oak pegs.


Why not enhance your garden with a beautiful gazebo or pergola?  An oak gazebo or pergola is the ideal feature in which to entertain or take in the beauty of your garden.  Townsend Timber offers two basic specification pergolas in kit form,

  • the Forum, and
  • The Winterborne.

The Forum is mid range with saddle-jointed roof beam and side frames with curved braces for rigidity.  The Winterborne is the most robust deign with full peg-jointed side frames and mortise & tenon jointed curved braces.  Both designs are ideal for climbing plants!  Oak Framed Gazebos use the same post, beam and brace structure but with the added benefit of a solid roof, be it glass or shingle for respite from the changing weather.

You can buy products in kit form for DIY assembly or, further more why not enlist Townsend’s in-house installation team?
