We Create
Oak Frame Homes


Are you dreaming of building a beautiful bespoke home?

Would you like to work with architects and designers, specialists in oak frame homes, who really listen to your brief, understand your lifestyle and will create a truly unique design just for you?

Would you like a cost consultant to provide you with independent cost planning advice so you can understand what you can achieve for your budget and make the right decisions throughout the journey?

Do you need the support of a planning expert to understand what can be achieved on your site?

Whether you want a complete oak frame or simply love the aesthetic of oak, would you like an independent oak frame specialist who can guide the design from the beginning of the process and advise you on how to get the best results for your budget?

Would you like all of this provided by one company, one contact, one point of accountability?

Tim and Andy founded our company to provide a complete and professional service for people who want high quality, stunningly designed and meticulously built homes.

They had become increasingly frustrated by the number of house-building projects they saw coming off the rails because of budget overrun, loss of momentum or because no one would listen properly to what clients wanted.

Whilst the concept of the business was born from extensive experience in the oak framing industry, the company has grown to encompass all types of house building, providing services to self-builders as well as complete turnkey solutions.

“Everyone in our multi-disciplinary team of turnkey specialists is committed to providing outstanding professional services to achieve the aspirations and ambitions of each client. We engage with, listen, and understand our clients’ lifestyles before using our experience to advise, design and create a dream home from their vision. A home which expresses exactly how they want to live.”

Looking for inspiration?


We are currently working on a wide range of projects for our clients across the whole of the country, from contemporary to traditional oak frame homes, from urban dwellings to holiday havens.


Come and see a selection of our recently finished projects, from the Cornish barn inspired upside down house, the compact contemporary urban home, to the dream holiday haven. Each one a bespoke design, crafted to meet the dreams and budgets of our clients.


In Build

The exciting part of any project is seeing the dream become a reality. Have a look at how our current builds are progressing, see the oak frames being erected and look out for the tiny men in the rather large pool basement.

What Our Clients Say

“Thanks very much everyone for helping us to get to this point. I know it was a bit of a gamble given the original plot restrictions, but you have collectively made the process very stress free for us. The designs were great and managed to visualise our perfect house much better than we could explain it. Very professional and what a great result - can’t wait to move in!”

G Beamson

“I have to be honest, first impression, I love everything about what you have sent over…well done! From being nervous about the project, we now feel confident and are enjoying the process. We are looking forward to when the house is complete, inviting you to come and experience what you have helped create for us.”

J Hammond

“Thank you both for creating such a stunning ‘building’ which will ultimately become a wonderful place to live and call home.”


“I was very apprehensive about remotely embarking on a project to create our new family home in Hertfordshire whilst we are based in Dubai. The turnkey service offered by Complete Oak Home seemed to be exactly what we needed. The team have been my eyes and ears on the ground. We are delighted with the plans for our new home, the bespoke design has responded perfectly to the demands and opportunities of the site and to our brief. I have been exceedingly impressed by Complete Oak Home’s professionalism and the support and confidence they have given to us.”


“Working with Complete Oak Home has been an entirely different experience to the previous one, and we have felt they have listened to us throughout. We have some way to go to finish our new home, but we know we are now working with people who have our interests at heart helping us along the way to create a beautiful, distinctive and affordable home.”

M Haynes & V Rawlinson

“So far we’ve felt Complete Oak Home to be incredibly supportive of our project. They’ve been very helpful to us in dealing with and responding to concerns we might have, whether they’re small or large. I’d say the best result we’ve had so far in all of our dealings with COH is their focus on cost. We started this project without properly understanding quite how expensive it was going to become and where the areas were that we perhaps would be more exposed than we realised, but since we started with COH we’ve found the financial support of their offering particularly useful.”


“We are both thrilled to have got over the prior notification hurdle with a design that inspires us and responds to the site and structure as well as more than meeting our needs. We were aware that it pushed the Class Q criteria a little and with good collaboration with COH and support from the planning consultancy side, ensured we got to this point. A big thank you to all involved!”
