Self-build tip: Design to your budget
It’s important to determine your build budget, excluding the cost of land and stress to your designer that this budget is set in stone. Anything they design for you must be capable of being built within that budget otherwise it is not fit for purpose. At Welsh Oak Frame, our in-house design team spend a great deal of time getting to know you from the start, your budget as well as your lifestyle as we understand these are important factors when designing your perfect oak frame home.
