oak potting shed

Border Oak build all sorts of oak framed buildings and have an outbuildings division specialising in oak framed garages, barns, swimming pool covers, cartsheds, oak gazebos etc etc.
And here is  the latest to add to the portfolio - a pretty oak potting shed built in my parents meadow

 Luckily I was able to borrow a dog and a blond haired angel for the day - the dog went home with his owner and I kept the cute boy for myself.

Charlie the dog (who belongs to my mum friend was the BEST doggy model you could ask for and only wanted an ice bun as payment) and Gabriel got on like a house on fire (not a Border Oak house on fire mind you - oak is self charring which extinguishes the flame and only burns very slowly and structural oak actually out performs steel in fire tests).
Gabriel walked up and down, up and down, up and down for the photographer and was very grown up about it all.

My lovely little studio  -  the broadband is faster in the meadow than in my house!

We had a great couple of hours taking these photos and Gabriel and Charlie were perfect - I hope you like the photos of my perfect little oak framed potting shed. Have a great weekend!
