Each Heritage Buildings oak construction starts from your dream. Your dream to enjoy your house or garden even more. Your dream to create a unique space to relax. All the while keeping the added investment value to your home in mind. During a first meeting, our designer listens to your dreams and translates them into a hand-drawn sketch. You can see with your own eyes how your wishes take shape step by step in a unique oak creation.
After a home visit, our designer creates a detailed pencil drawing from his rough sketch. The perfect symbiosis between your garden, home and the new oak construction. He won’t settle for less. No detail will escape his attention… What’s the best fit for you: a handmade English tile slate roof, straw or old slates from Boom (“Boomse pannen”)?
During this phase, you’ll also receive a clear and transparent financial outlay of your investment. With a guaranteed added investment value to your home higher than what you spend now. We’ll throw in the daily enjoyment you get from your oak building for free… Once we get the green light, we’ll work out the technical details – and you’ll receive all the necessary documents for planning permission, if necessary. If the construction requires changes in stability, we hire an architect to oversee the construction.
Why we are so motivated by exclusive oak buildings and outbuildings? Life is more than plain hard work. Beautiful old-timers, a good glass of wine, a day at the golf course, a stylish garden party with family and friends, relaxing in the sun by the pool and orangery…
Our exclusive oak garden rooms or extensions allow you to enjoy the outdoors even more. An oak extension doesn’t only enlarge your home, but it also lets in more natural light.
Each time your walk into our exclusive and authentic piece of craftsmanship, you’ll get that holiday feeling.
In Belgium, we are the pioneer in authentic English garden rooms, outbuildings and extension constructions. In 2015 we celebrated our 20th anniversary with more than 2,600 projects completed in the Benelux, Germany and France. Meanwhile Lannoo has published four editions of photo books about us.
Our story started in the early 90s when Peter Pollet discovered Heritage Buildings, an English construction company that has been making exclusive custom oak buildings, using traditional techniques, for over a century.
Thanks to Peter Pollet’s love for old-timers, he found the company through an advertisement in a specialised car magazine. A close working relationship formed after his first visit, resulting in Peter becoming the honoured agent for Heritage Buildings on the continent.
At the end of 2015, Peter Pollet decided to dedicate himself completely to his first love: old-timers. Walter Sanders joined the team as new CEO. He has years of experience in the marketing and construction world.
