Planning permission in a conservation area?
Building an oak frame home in a green belt area sounds like a tricky business. Our latest planning consent story details how we approached this challenge from the perspective of Pete Tonks, the Architectural Designer responsible for this house design.

Our clients, Johnny and Jane had two failed applications and a dismissed appeal already, so we started from scratch with a much more detailed and methodical approach, working with the local authority within the confines of the relevant policies.
After some back and forth with sketches, reviews, and meetings, permission was delivered on Christmas Eve! read the full story

Timber Framed House Kits are nothing new!
There are many 'flat pack' house kits available, usually designed in very contemporary styles. What the self-builder should know is that modular homes and house kits have essentially been around for hundreds of years, joiners and carpenters creating components and sections that slot together effortlessly. This is where #Oakwrights come in, our frame kits and encapsulation panels make it easy for the self builder or contractor to assemble a house quickly and efficiently. Read our latest blog about this subject.

When building an oak frame home, costs must be considered and whilst oak is not the cheapest material to use, the value is unbeatable. It’s strength and longevity is unmatched, not to mention the unique character it gives to your home.

The true cost of building your oak frame home is very much dependent on how much involvement you have in the process. The price can be significantly lower when managing tradespeople and ordering materials yourself, but your time may be more valuable and so it could be more effective to have someone else project manage for you, or even let Oakwrights oversee the whole project.

Take a detailed look at the costs of building with oak on our website.
