You may need planning permission for your oak barn depending on various criteria, including its height, position on your land, and whether or not your land has permitted development rights.

We are experienced at advising whether or not you need planning permission, and if you do, we can help you to obtain it.

When you talk with us about what you want to achieve with your traditional timber barn, we’ll discuss how you want it to look, and how you want to use it. We’ll talk you through various end-types including full hip ends, barn hip ends, gable ends and whether or not you’d want a catslide created.

A log store is often built as an integral part of an oak barn; if you’re just looking for a log store on its own, we will of course create this for you with the same care and attention to detail and quality as we devote to all our projects.

Please take a look at some of our projects, and when you are ready to talk, if you like we can arrange for you to visit one or two of our customers’ homes, and meet those who trusted us to create them. This way you will be completely confident that we are the right company for you.

Are you ready to talk now? Please email info@greenoakbuildingcompany.co.uk,  phone us on 01489 878384, or complete the form.


‘We are very pleased with both the build and quality of the finished barn. Given the difficulties of our access to the site, across farmland with no track, the Green Oak Building Company organised and executed their build programme efficiently leaving a tidy site. Well done James and his team’
