Blog > Green oak porch

Built this a couple of months back at a house I did a large extension and refurb a couple of years back.

Used some nice green oak that a guy I know cuts, all done with mortice, tenons, half laps on the corners then pegged.

Cheated a bit on the roof as I used softwood for the rafters then cut oak rafter feet from some 4×2 that was left of from some of the refurb work, the customer did not want to pay extra for all oak.

Also ripped down some oak board to use as a tilt so the eaves could be left open.
