The summer months are approaching, but as you can’t guarantee the weather, why not add an oak framed pool house to your property which can give you poolside luxury, come rain or shine?

Bespoke oak framed pool houses offer a fantastic way to combine luxury with leisure, and can also provide extra space to entertain friends and family. With additional extras available, such as impressive oak roofs and trusses and stunning glazed doors which can open out onto your grounds when the sun does pay a visit, the possibilities are vast.

Here are three examples of incredible oak framed pool houses to w(h)et your appetite:

1. Just look up: Oak pool building with exposed wooden roof

This incredible oak pool house makes a dramatic feature of its fully exposed timber roof, with intricately detailed trusses completing the beautiful vaulted structure. The large pool building is designed so that the exposed oak columns support the open style roof, making the ceiling structure the star of the building.

Internal oak framed glazing surrounding the pool creates a corridor, separating the pool building from the rest of the house.

2. Lots to see here: Vaulted oak pool house with internal gallery

Proving that your imagination is the limit when it comes to designing and building an oak pool house, this amazing space incorporates an internal viewing gallery to complement the stunning exposed roof beams. The spacious lounge area allows guests to enjoy a spectacular view of the pool and the oak tie trusses.

An oak frame staircase leads to the viewing gallery, which features exposed oak rafters for an added rustic feel. Down by the pool itself, a Jacuzzi area adds a playful touch for family fun and there is additional storage and seating space downstairs as well.

The exterior of the building features a beautiful glazed gable and traditional oak cladding, making the detached pool house an attractive addition to the main property.

3. See the light! Oak framed pool house with flat roof, glazing and roof lantern

This gorgeous oak framed pool house has a nine-metre flat roof span supported by chunky oak ceiling beams. By glazing three of the walls and adding an orangery-style roof lantern, light is able to flood in and transform the space. The flat roof and spotlights used in the pool house give the building a clean, modern feel, emphasising the vastness of the space. The robust oak beams and braces used throughout are accentuated by glazed panels and bi-folding doors to maximise both the natural light and the incredible views of the property grounds.

The roof lantern allows light to flood in from the ceiling and the rafters and beams make attractive patterns on the water of the pool, adding to the overall sophistication and appeal of the pool house.
