OUR THREE BAY CART LODGES

At Stour Valley Oak, our Constable range of two bay cartlodges comprises 12 different designs, featuring either a gable, hip or barn-end roof profile. 

Named after Suffolk-born artist John Constable, our range of two bay cartlodges offers timeless style, master craftsmanship and artisan finishing, just like the works of its namesake. Often referred to as ‘Constable County’, Suffolk is synonymous with some of Constable’s most famous artworks, many of which depict the charming, rustic landscapes of our region. Drawing on his vision of the idyllic Dedham Vale and Stour Valley, our Constable range has been developed with traditional, local styling in mind. 

Constructed with the finest quality oak, and time-honoured carpentry techniques, our two bay cartlodges offer a solid and well proportioned solution for family parking and a versatile option for storage. The addition of either an aisle or outshot further adds to the functionality of the space, and as an added benefit, some of the designs in the range are under 30m², so may be exempt from both planning permission and building regulations. Find out more about planning permission.

NEED HELP WITH SOME OF THE TERMINOLOGY?​

While browsing our cartlodge range, you may find these definitions useful.  

 

Barn hips A small hip roof detail to create symmetrical slopes on both ends of the roof. Sometimes also referred to as a Gambrel.  

Gables The intersections between the gable end wall and the roof, which are generally triangular in shape.

 

Braces The structural supports between a vertical post and horizontal beam, installed with mortice and tenon joints and oak dowels.  

Sole plate The horizontal timer base laid on the brick plinth, on which the vertical posts and studwork are built. 

Rafters The sloping beams that form part of the internal framework of a roof. 

Featheredge boarding Single boards that are placed with each one overlapping the next. 

Protim An organic-based preservation treatment for wood. 

Staddle Stones Traditional granite or sandstone plinths used to support the oak posts that aren’t on the sole plate and brick plinth i.e. the front and rear posts in the middle of the cartlodge. The staddle stones lift the posts from the ground, protecting them from the elements.  

Aisle An internal space, either situated to the side or rear of the cartlodge. Generally used for dry storage such as bikes, tools and garden equipment. 

Outshot An external storage space, without walls, most commonly used as a log store.
