The Design Process

Initial consultation
To begin your project journey, our free, no-obligation design consultations will provide you with the opportunity to explore your options and discuss your ideas with one of our experienced, nationwide designers. Your designer will visit your home to see the available space and explore different design options with you that meet your requirements.

Show Sites
We have Show Sites in several locations, which you can visit with your designer to see our products in the flesh to help you visualise how your project could look and see our craftsmanship up close.

In-house design
Working closely with your designer, our in-house creative team will then create a visual sketch of your Oak Framed Building using extensive design software, which will bring your project to life and allow you to visualise your finished Oak Framed Building.

Presentation & Alterations
Your designer will then revisit you to present you with these sketches along with a detailed quotation of your design; allowing time for you and your designer to discuss design alterations and answer any further questions you may have about your project.



If planning is required, our experienced in-house planning team can undertake this on your behalf; their wealth of knowledge will help speed up the process and remove the confusion and stress of application forms and dealing with planning officers away from you.

We are also able to handle Building Regulations and SAP Calculations should they be required – this is again something your designer will be able to discuss with you.




Once planning is approved, we then process your full working drawings and structural calculations in order to begin manufacturing your bespoke building. Each Oak beam is hand selected from our drying yards and put through state-of-the-art machinery, programmed to precisely cut and shape each beam as required.


Your building is then passed to one of our framing teams who will pre-assemble your building, adding the final intricate details to ensure you building will be seamlessly erected on site.


In the meantime, our joinery team will be piecing together each door and window with your chosen ironmongery and prepare your items for delivery to site.


Pre-site Inspection

Before delivery, your allocated Julius Bahn contracts manager will carry out a pre-site inspection with your builder to ensure the foundations are ready for us to install your building. Detailed groundworks drawing will be provided to your builder to assist them with our base requirements to ensure your pre-site inspection is passed.


Your Oak Framed Building will then be delivered to site and erected by our expert fitting and roofing teams. To keep disruption to a minimum, we ensure your home and garden are protected and kept tidy throughout the installation.

Final Inspection

Once your building has been built, a final inspection will take place to ensure the Oak Framed Building meets our standards and is signed off by yourselves.

Your contracts manager and our customer service team are always on hand to answer any questions throughout the build.



Once your Oak Framed Building is complete, our aftercare team will provide you with detailed maintenance information for your project.

No matter when your project was built, our team are always happy to help and advise on any questions you may have.
