Take your first step

Your Partner

You want to build that dream oak frame home, perhaps the final adventure or somewhere to bring up a family, but are unsure of where to start. How much will it cost, will you get planning permission, how do you find the right builder? Should you speak to an architect, an oak frame manufacturer or a local contractor?

We want you to enjoy this exciting and rewarding time, making the decisions you want to and choosing your involvement at every step.

Whether you want us to design, design and build or just build your oak frame house we’re here to help. Our team have many years of experience working with oak frame houses and offer a service beyond comparison with that achieved by trying to bring together a generalist architect, oak frame manufacturer and general builder.

What makes us different?

In an industry which claims many things, we are genuinely different. Here’s why:


We can provide a full turnkey service.


We are not oak frame manufacturers. Our architects are free to focus on giving you what you want without concerning themselves with maximising the sale value of the oak frame or other associated components.


We are not general architectural practitioners. We specialise in the architectural design of oak frame houses and buildings. Our specialist expertise ensures that the oak frame is perfectly integrated with all the other building components for outstanding and lasting quality and value.


We design for you, and you alone. We have no ‘in-house style’ and no agenda to promote a particular company portfolio.


We continually check the project costs as we go so there is no need to wait until the end of a tender process to see if you can afford what you have paid to be designed for you.


Our clients speak for themselves

We’ve designed and built a diverse and exciting range of traditional and contemporary oak framed homes for individuals, couples and families.

  • It’s really great knowing that you’re there in control of things:
    Thank you so much……
    I don’t know why anyone would build in any other way
