Building with Oak In Essex:

Whether it is a cartlodge, garden room, garage, extension or a complete build, we, at Essence Of Oak, are committed to giving your project our full attention from start to finish.

With years of experience in the industry we can work with you to create a building that is sympathetic to your surroundings using green oak that has been sourced from forests that are sustainable.

We at Essence Of Oak can give you any advice on your project from design to a complete turn-key finish.

Typically, we use our own highly skilled architects but if you prefer to use your own architect we can liaise with them as required. The focus, as with all Essence Of Oak activities, is to work closely with all parties to transform your dreams into a reality.

I would like to thank Essence of Oak Ltd for the fantastic work they have completed for us; our new porch looks fantastic and we are the envy of our neighbours 

The work was completed on time and to budget by a great bunch of guys, I will be using them again.  Thank you.

We would like to thank you for such a wonderful addition to our home. The porch is a real piece of craftsmanship with such attention to detail; you have a real passion for your work. The whole construction from start to finish was well managed and it was a pleasure to have you and your team around. 

I would highly recommend Essence of Oak.  And once again many thanks;  the porch has exceeded our expectations and has given our home some much needed character.

'Oak Pergola'

Dear Ben
Just to let you know how thrilled we are with the oak pergola you built us. The craftsmanship and detailing are quite exceptional.
Viewing the pergola from the house, you have given us a room in the garden under which we just want to sit and enjoy our surroundings. Many thanks once again, far exceeded our expectations.

'Oak Porch'

Its rare to find someone with such passion for his work and the finished product as Ben Thole of Essence of Oak. The end result is as much as we'd hoped for and more. Excellent craftsmanship and very committed follow up to our requirements. Ben came up with some lovely detail suggestions which have made all the difference and added real character to our Porch and our house. 

We would strongly recommend him and his work, much of which he undertakes personally.

'Oak framed Garage'

Ben completed our Oak Framed Garage demonstrating excellent craftsmanship. 

He and his team were very personable and enthusiastic about their work and kept us informed all the way through the process even inviting us to visit the workshop to view our structure before it was erected on site. 

He provides an excellent service at a reasonable price.

'Oak Garden Room'

Hi Ben,

Sorry its taken me a while to send you this. 

Id just like to say that I'm so very pleased with my garden room it has the wow factor that I was looking for.

Even though my house is modern I love oak and needed something to replace my glass conservatory as this was cold and hard to keep warm especially in the winter months. I'm very pleased I came across your company on the internet as there are others, but they didn't provide the same enthusiasm and knowledge of oak that you showed when I contacted you.  I knew from the start that you and your capable team would do a good job especially as the shape I wanted was unusual, but it proved that you are able to commit and do a very good finish at a reasonable price. After coming to your premises and seeing your craftsmanship, I was delighted when the build was complete.  The tiled roof is exceptional with the sky lights adding warmth and depth as the glass and workmanship on the oak provide the glamour and wow factor I was looking for.

Thank you so much
