Oak Orangery with tiled roof in Somerset

The owners of this beautiful home in the village of Spaxton in Somerset, were hoping to transform an existing extension, and there is little doubt that this hope was fulfilled.

The new oak building included a lantern built into the roof which brought in the light that was kept out by the solid tiled roof there before.

The combination of tiles and glass gives a great compromise between light and shade and is increasingly becoming the de facto standard for glazed extensions. The matching tiles on the mansard roof complemented existing roof elevations.


The new building contains two sets of three leaf bi-fold doors which allowed smooth openings between rooms and the garden, giving a lovely free-flowing feel to the living space.

The family have peacocks as pets, as you can see from the photos.

Our customers are delighted with the end result and say that the finished product exceeds their expectations.
