Carriage Houses & Cart Lodges

Our oak-framed and timber carriage houses and cart lodges sit equally comfortably alongside period, listed buildings and contemporary, modern homes. 

Providing dry storage for cars, tools and garden furniture, they are available in a range of sizes and styles.

Why Choose an Olson Carriage House?

All of our carriage houses and cart lodges are constructed from the same sustainably sourced, pressure treated timber that we use in our range of timber buildings.

Being based in Kent with more listed buildings than any other county, we know how important it is to design a good-looking carriage house that conforms to planning requirements and is sympathetic to the existing property.

Built to last, we guarantee all of our timber buildings for 5 years.

Simply Designed For You

One size does not fit all; we work with you to design your ideal carriage house or cart lodge that incorporates all the features you require. Perhaps you need a particular height or width to accommodate a caravan or horsebox?

Whether that's an open bay, garden store or workshop, we build to order so that we can create your bespoke design, whilst our large stock of pre-cut timbers and materials mean that our construction lead time is quick.

We have lots of useful planning advice for building carriage houses and cart lodges, and can help to guide you through a planning application.
