Once you have acquired your plot, your self-build journey begins with a set of drawings which must have both planning and building regulations approval before building work commences.

Creating a beautiful oak frame home begins with exceptional design and it is essential that you choose an architect/designer who understands oak framing. This can help avoid issues right from the start and ensures that you make the most of oak framing structurally, aesthetically as well as taking into consideration scale and proportions.

Our in-house design team live and breathe oak frame design and it is these extensive skills that ensure we create a stunning oak frame home that delivers your vision within your budget.
Visiting and understanding your plot is an important part of the design process, taking into consideration the landscape, views, surrounding buildings and any planning constraints. We also spend a great deal of time getting to know you from the start, understanding your ideas and aspirations, your budget as well as your lifestyle as these are important factors when designing your perfect oak frame home.

Spending time on getting the design right is time well spent and our designers will work with you to refine every last detail until it delivers exactly what you want in terms of aesthetics, size, functionality and within your budget. We can also work with your local planning authority to ensure it meets their approval.

Our in-house design service doesn’t just end with a set of concept designs. We take them to the next level where our experienced in-house frame designers will turn your designs into a fully-interactive model, creating a virtual ‘walk-through’ so you can visualise, explore, adjust and refine every last detail of your project.

The careful detailing of the frame at this stage enables accurate costing, ensures the project will be a success, delivers your vision and that when complete; each frame is a pleasure to live with.
