“Thanks again for your excellent work on making this happen. It is clear when reading the case officer’s report that the application itself hit all the ‘sweet spots’ and made her job easy.”


“We have both had a good look at the designs and we absolutely love them. It hugely exceeds our expectations and for this we are truly thankful of your superbly impressive work! We are so excited to think that this could be ours - you are very talented indeed.”


“The one thing that has enabled us to progress is I believe finding a company that is prepared to partner with us from the very beginning and take us through planning, design/costing, tendering and build through to completion (or to any stage along the way).”

Our StoryOur Story

What Is The Difference Between Timber Frame and Oak Frame Homes?

Oak frame or timber frame? But isn’t oak timber anyway? Confused?

Whilst the terms are largely used interchangeably by self-builders, timber frame refers to the panel systems that creates the insulated air tight envelope around the building, and won’t be seen when the house is complete e.g. SIPS. Oak frame uses large post and beams of oak to create a visible structural space frame.
