Case Study Bespoke Timber Carport
Our client wanted a bespoke timber carport with tiled roof and laying of footings. Nestled in the middle of the Kent countryside in the village of Hamstreet, the customer in this instance was looking for a way to keep birds and dirt off their cars. The Brief Once the decision had been made that space was required for two cars and a timber building was to be used, the client put three criteria at the forefront. The carport had to be in keeping with his house, look good and crucially, there must be a high standard of workmanship. This put the project firmly in Olson's hands. Why Were Olson chosen? Olson brought a few things to the table that others could not. Firstly our flexibility in terms of timber building design was vital, the client knew what he wanted but also benefited form our advice about how to achieve the desired carport. Our design team were able to assist and suggest ideas to make sure the end product was perfect. Secondly price; Olson timber buildings is a family business that pride's itself on the highest quality at the best price. Often meaning, as in this case, we are a little more cost effective than competitors. Thirdly, Olson proved to be a one-stop-shop, as we helped with plans, laid the footings/groundwork and completed some driveway work before putting up the timber carport which had been made exactly to the customer's unique specifications. How long did it take? There were some planning complications along the way but as soon as these were resolved there were about 3 days of groundwork (we also undertook clearing of shrubbery, extending the driveway and laying footings) and the building went up swiftly afterwards. Most footings involve two visits as we need to allow time for the concrete to set before laying the blocks on which the building sits. What does the customer say? "Olson are an extremely efficient and friendly team. The work was carried out promptly and they were so clean and tidy. They are also genuinely nice people; great to deal with, and that’s important. We would definitely recommend them. Their workmanship, quality and service is spot on and they were efficient from start to finish." Are you interested in a timber carport or garage for your house?
