Creating the Self-Build Video Series

 

We have created a how to build a house course for our clients. Many clients come to us completely in the dark about the whole process of building a house. They often find that a lot of resources out there are unreliable, outdated, and not realistic. We are completely committed to providing our clients with plenty of help and thoughts this would be the perfect time to create a video series giving them all the information they need through their home-building journey.

Our main objective that we wanted to achieve through this project was to provide solid and easy to understand information and to be a company which our clients would come to for self-build resources.

We set out to plan out the content we wanted to include for our viewers. Using our road map as a guidance, download here for FREE (link Road Map freebie), we listed the process which a typical client goes through to get their dream home. We then broke it down into 9 separate topics as follows:

  • Design and Build Process
  • Project Appraisal
  • Up To Planning
  • The Planning Process
  • The Construction Package
  • Value Engineering
  • Tender Vs Negotiated Process
  • Build Contract
  • The Role of a Contract Administration

Everything you need to kick-start your turnkey bespoke home project.

Why we created it

The aim of creating this video was to give people information they may not already have. We want our viewers to be confident they know what is involved in the process of building a house, including the risks and pitfalls. There’s a huge misconception from builders about what goes on behind the scenes who often make the process sound very straight forward, quick, and often refer to unrealistic costs. Sadly, that’s not always the case. We go above and beyond to make sure you’re leaving your screen with confidence of how to build a house. We give you an accurate portrayal of all the different steps involved, and guidance and advice to make sure you’re working towards a realistic time and budget.

 

How we created it

Although we have used our own resources before this for creating videos for our Youtube channel, we concluded that this was to be more successful with a professional videographer who could provide the equipment as well as the editing skills. We felt this would be more suitable for what we were envisioning for the videos. Green Kiwi Productions was recommended to us and, after looking at their work and discussing their offerings, we felt confident they could deliver what we were looking for. They offered a very casual approach to presenting the videos which was exactly what we were after.

Working alongside Green Kiwi Productions, we discussed various ideas and ways to present this. The key priority was to make it personal and in a casual setting. We wanted to give it a quite informal approach and keep them short and to the point so that our audience would remain captivated and understand the information.

Because we used an architect first who was absolutely useless. He didn’t listen to us at all or give us a design that we wanted. In fact his design was so poor that I could have drawn it myself or just copied it straight from the internet.

How To Build An Oak Frame Home

Creating a traditionally styled bespoke oak frame home with our turnkey solution

Our clients came to us looking for a company to build a unique oak frame house using a full turnkey solution. “This house is set with a beautiful secluded glade surrounded by ancient woodlands. The aim here was to shape the architecture in such a way that it could command the site whilst not effective the openness of the green belt,” says Josh Wood, Architectural Designer on the project. “A three winged form has been proposed to achieve this. This geometry enables 3 separated courtyards to suit the client’s aspirations: A welcome entrance, raised morning garden and sunny patio.” This grand oak frame home is looking to be finished in 2018.

7 Ways To Turbo-Charge Your Project With A Self-Build Turnkey Solution

By | Are we the right fit?, Build process, Contract, Costs, Design, Planning, Risks

7 Ways To Turbo-Charge Your Project With A Self-Build Turnkey Solution

 

Working with a self-build turnkey company can really turbo-charge your project. You instantly benefit from the coordination, collaboration, cost efficiency and buying power of a well-established company running multiple projects. You have all the expertise you need at your fingertips, meaning you can move things forward immediately. Complete Oak Home has the most comprehensive self-build turnkey solution on the market. Here’s how it can help you turbo-charge your project.

1.     Under one roof

We do more under one roof than anyone else. Our team of architects, project coordinators, cost consultants and contract administrators are here to look after every aspect of our client’s projects.

2.    Cost control

We pay more attention to rigorous cost control than anyone else. Our robust costing processes enable us to advise our clients as they make the multitude of decisions needed to complete their project.

3.    Approach to design

Our unique approach to architectural design fully involves our clients, helping them get the house they want whilst benefiting from our architectural expertise and experience.

IF YOU HAVE A PLOT, AND WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO ONE OF OUR PROJECT ADVISORS ABOUT GETTING PLANNING PERMISSION, BUDGETING, BUILDING COSTS OR ANYTHING ELSE RELATING TO BUILDING A BESPOKE HOME, SCHEDULE A CALL HERE TO PICK OUR BRAINS!

4.    Planning

We have a great track record of getting planning permission on even the most challenging of sites. Whether it’s a straight forward full planning application or a site requiring a considered planning strategy to ensure success, we can help.

5.    Third parties

Where external specialists are needed, such as ecologists and engineers, we appoint them so we have responsibility and control over their performance.

6.    Local construction teams

Working countrywide means we work with local builders to ensure good value and avoid unnecessary costs for our clients. Our construction contracts ensure our clients best interests are served.

7.    Contract administration

Throughout the construction we act as contract administrators, making sure the house is built to specification, the design doesn’t get diluted and the clients only pay the fixed price agreed under the contract.

Due to the distance between our client’s home and the project, they wanted a complete end to end design and build service

Like so many of our clients, they wanted cost control, value engineering, and have a contract administrator on site was particularly important as they live remote to the site.

M SMITH-KEARY

To me turnkey means that you have a safe pair of hands to look after you through the whole process. But I was also quite nervous of it because I really wanted to be involved in all of the decision making, and needed to know that I wasn’t going to left out of the process. Your turnkey service means that I am really enjoying the journey of building our dream holiday home. I get to be involved in all of the nice bits knowing that you take care of all of the stressful bits!

The Right Design And Build Partner

3 Top Tips For Choosing The Right Design And Build Partner

By | Are we the right fit?, Build process

3 Top Tips For Choosing The Right Design And Build Partner

 

Designing and building a house is complex, so it’s imperative you find the right design and build partner to work with. Unless you know a lot about it you are bound to feel, at some point, you are making a leap of faith. You’re entrusting your project, and perhaps one of the biggest decisions and financial commitments of your life, to other people.

You will be working with those people for somewhere between 18 and 24 months. Not only do you need confidence they can do their job, you probably want to enjoy working with them.

So how will the leap of faith become one you can make? Listed below are the three key areas we feel you should look into when choosing your design and build partner.

1.     Processes

Have confidence in the process. Look at how different design and build partners will go about delivering your bespoke home. Does it make sense to you? Find out what their approach is to things such as project viability, design, cost control, procurement routes, value engineering, contract preparation and contract administration.

IF YOU HAVE A PLOT, AND WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO ONE OF OUR PROJECT ADVISORS ABOUT GETTING PLANNING PERMISSION, BUDGETING, BUILDING COSTS OR ANYTHING ELSE RELATING TO BUILDING A BESPOKE HOME, SCHEDULE A CALL HERE TO PICK OUR BRAINS!

2.    Expertise

Look at the skills and expertise of the team you’ll be working with. Are they qualified to do the job? For example, there’s a big difference between being a qualified architect compared with an architectural designer. The ideal solution is to work with a multi-disciplinary team of fully qualified architects, and architectural technicians, that are supported by project coordinators and cost consultants who work collaboratively and efficiently all under one roof.

 3. People

The clear majority of people in the construction industry spend their time working with industry professionals, designing and building commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, mass housing and so on. They spend their waking hours speaking industry language, they all understand how the processes work. They never need to consider that someone might need an explanation in a language they can understand. Choose a design and build partner who selects their staff for their passion for working with clients and helping them to realise their dreams, who take time to really understand what you want and need from your project. Staff that specialise in guiding and advising clients throughout the process, in the full knowledge that for many this is a once in a lifetime experience, and one that should be enjoyed.

 “From being nervous about the project, we now feel confident and are enjoying the process. We are looking forward to when it’s complete, inviting you to come and experience what you have helped create for us.” Mr Hammond, North West.

choosing the right architect

Choosing The Right Architect – Our Top Tips

By | Are we the right fit?, Design

Here Are Our Top Tips For Choosing The Right Architect

 

Choosing the right architect shouldn’t be like choosing the right pair of shoes. You shouldn’t have to browse around until you find one that fits or buy a pair you think fit but after a couple of outings prove not to.

A good architect should be able, if willing, to design any style of house. If his preferred style isn’t likely to suit you he should advise you to look elsewhere, not try and shoehorn your aspirations or endeavour to expand your budget to suit his will. All the while charging you a fee for doing so.

However, it may appear you have little option because the architectural process is rarely clear and often confusing. It can appear to be a mystical art. The usual approach seems to be to look at architect’s portfolios, find one you like, take the plunge and hope for the best.

Alternatively, look for a practice not with an in-house style you think suits but with a clear design approach that engages and involves you whilst sharing and employing their skills and expertise to ensure you get the house you want. This should really help you when choosing the right architect.

The more eclectic the architect’s portfolio the more likely they are listening to and creating what their clients want.

Architecture –  the art or practice of designing and constructing buildings

All too many houses fail to get built, either at all or as originally intended, because they are beyond the client’s financial reach. Through the design and specification process the clients budget is stretched to breaking point and the project grinds to a halt.

Even worse, the question of project cost is avoided, the design is developed and put out to tender and only, after substantial investment, financially and emotionally, does the client discover the scheme is beyond their reach.

When choosing the right architect, look for a practice that takes your budget seriously, doesn’t avoid discussions about budget and has a robust process of budgetary control.

How We Are Different From Oak Frame Manufacturers

By | Are we the right fit?, Build process, Contract, Costs, Design, Risks, Value

How We Are Different From Oak Frame Manufacturers

 

1. We are different to a oak frame manufacturers because we do not make oak frames

Because we don’t manufacture oak frames, it doesn’t matter to us how much oak frame you have in your house. We believe oak frame buildings are more efficient and perform at their best when combined with other construction methods. Our architects and designers are free to give our clients exactly what they want, bringing together budget, value and design aspirations.

We create unique and stunning homes without any pressure to maximise the amount of oak frame we include.

2. We are different to oak frame manufacturers because of our complete accountability

In the first few weeks of your project we will do a thorough evaluation of your aspirations, your plot and project costs. We will be with you at the end of your project to be held accountable for delivering it within the budget we have agreed.

We offer a fully joined up approach which is different to oak frame manufacturers because we have a contractual responsibility to our clients throughout the whole process.

3. We are different to oak frame manufacturers because we have a unique cost control process

Safe in the knowledge your dream home can be achieved within your budget, our ongoing unique cost control process is designed to ensure we achieve best value for money for your build.

Good cost control has to start with good design. Not only working to the agreed budget, but ensuring the building is optimised for oak frame construction. As we’re not oak frame manufacturers we aren’t constrained by the need to maximise the extent of the oak frame.

By working with us, and taking advantage of our industry knowledge and expertise, you can expect to save 10-15% on your total project costs, compared with self-managing.

HOW WE WORK WITH OUR CLIENTS

A successful self-build project is the culmination of the skills, expertise and quality of a multitude of experts, services and products. It requires a continuous chain of responsibility from end to end by someone who has the client’s best interests at heart. A product manufacturer, whether they manufacture windows, concrete or oak frames has a vested interest in promoting their own products.

At Complete Oak Home our team of experts advise and help you, as you make all of the necessary decisions. From discussions on project feasibility, design, planning and build – right up to the day we hand you the keys to your dream home. We understand this journey is an intensely personal process and believe it should start with an experienced team who really care. We specialise in working with clients who want to build their home, but don’t want to be self-builders or self-manage their project.

Our team is multi-disciplinary comprising of architects, engineers, construction specialists, cost experts and project coordinators. We work closely together from the start of your project to ensure the house we design and build suits your lifestyle, meets your design aspirations, and comes within your budget.

We don’t just recommend third party builders, tradesman and suppliers. We coordinate them all for you and take responsibility for the whole project from start to finish. We have a contractual responsibility to our clients throughout the whole process.

Working With Clients Who Work Overseas – Exciting New Project in Austria

 

We love working with clients who live overseas and have just been appointed to design and build an English oak framed house in Austria, close to the border with Slovenia. The site is in an idyllic location with stunning views of the mountains.

Having looked at German house manufacturers and concluded they didn’t understand what he wanted, and Austrian design which doesn’t appeal to him, our client short listed three UK companies to visit: us and two oak frame manufacturers.

Our flexibility in finding the most efficient way to run the project, our client led approach to design and independence of the oak frame industry led to an immediate appointment. This particular client works in Kazakhstan and we’re also in the construction phase with clients who have a project in Somerset but live in Kuala Lumpur.

Whether you are UK based or live overseas, we are very happy to work with you. Our willingness to travel to our clients and use of modern technology makes this process very straight forward, and our super fast broadband enables seamless Skype calls, Zoom and GoTo meetings.

Through modern technology we have been able to design and build a house for clients living overseas

We have been working with clients living overseas to create a contemporary oak frame home. The three factors they wanted from a company were; a full turnkey service, an efficient cost control process and a company with extensive planning knowledge and capabilities. With regular Skype calls and meeting face to face when back in the UK, we have been able to work closely with our clients ensuring that we have their project fully under control.

Our Value Engineering And Cost Control Process

 

At the start of the turnkey process we estimate an indicative build cost which is expressed as a cost per square metre of gross internal floor area (GIFA). As the project develops this evolves to become a fixed price (that falls within the agreed budget) for a specific design and relates to a comprehensive set of working drawings and detailed specification.

To achieve this requires cost planning and diligent value engineering.

This is how the budget and cost plan evolve for a scheme:

1. Understand what budget is available and what needs to be included in it

2. Work out how much space needs to be built to accommodate the brief

3. Assess key cost drivers e.g. size, general level of specification, design complexities, site conditions and planning requirements to establish likely cost per square metre

4. Check cost per m2 (3) and space needed (2) against the project budget

5. Develop the design within the parameters of 2 and 3

6. Planning application submission followed by planning approval

7. Take a detailed schedule of finishes and specification

8. Develop detailed cost plan and working drawings

9. Reach and agree a fixed price for inclusion in the construction contract

In addition to the stages above we continually advise on the budget implications of design and specification decisions you need to make throughout the project. Our cost consultants also constantly value engineer by working closely with the design team to find the most efficient design and construction solutions.

Designing a house that meets your aspirations, is within your budget and represents value for money, is a process of helping you to develop your understanding, so you can make well informed choices.

You have a significant amount of control over how much your house will cost. Our aim is to ensure the decisions and choices you need to make can be done so with confidence, and use our expertise to ensure the best value solutions are available.

The process of budgeting, cost planning and value based engineering is not a single activity but should be carried out throughout the design and construction of your new home. Architects will often suggest the employment of a quantity surveyor (QS) if you raise the issue of cost – however at best a QS will only be able to do an arm’s length snapshot of estimated cost at any one point in time.

Our cost control process allows our clients to build their lifetime home

After unsuccessful service from a previous company, our clients came to us for our turnkey service and cost control process. We are working with them using our cost control process to ensure that all costs are included in the complete project.

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). The Complete Oak Home offers us a way of achieving our dream by undertaking those tasks for us.

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.

10 Things To Ask To Make Sure You’re Going To Get A Complete Turnkey Solution

10 Things To Ask To Make Sure You’re Going To Get A Complete Turnkey Solution

 

There are many companies who claim to offer a complete turnkey solution, but in reality what they offer varies considerably.

So how do you tell if a company really does offer a complete turnkey solution?

To help, we’ve put together a list of questions that you should ask any company you’re considering working with, right at the very start:

  1. Is your team made up of multi-disciplinary experts?
  2. Do you ensure the whole project is delivered within budget?
  3. Do you have a contractual responsibility to your clients throughout the whole process?
  4. Do you have ongoing cost review systems in place to ensure you achieve best value?
  5. Can you help me save 10-15% on my project compared with self-managing?
  6. Do you have everything under one roof?
  7. Do you manufacture any product used in the build or are you independent?
  8. Do you just recommend third party builders, tradesmen and suppliers or do you coordinate everything for me?
  9. Do you take responsibility for the project from start to finish?
  10. Are you my one main point of contact for the whole project?

At Complete Oak Home we work with you right from initial project discussions to when you get the keys.

We work on bespoke builds and are oak frame specialists, however, because we are independent and don’t manufacture oak frames, we create designs that incorporate as much or as little oak frame as you want, and sometimes none at all.

Building an oak frame home tailored to the aspirations of our clients using our full turnkey solution

Our clients wanted to replace the existing dwelling with a new bespoke oak frame home tailored to suit their lifestyle. They approached us knowing they wanted a full turnkey solution. This is because they had converted a barn and completely refurbished a big house prior to this project, so were aware of the pitfalls of dealing with a multitude of different people and services.

HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:

It's been something we've been looking at for some time but to be honest we didn't really want the hassle of having to do everything ourselves. The Complete Oak Home offers us a way of achieving our dream by undertaking those tasks for us.

M SMITH-KEARY

To me turnkey means that you have a safe pair of hands to look after you through the whole process. But I was also quite nervous of it because I really wanted to be involved in all of the decision making, and needed to know that I wasn’t going to left out of the process. Your turnkey service means that I am really enjoying the journey of building our dream holiday home. I get to be involved in all of the nice bits knowing that you take care of all of the stressful bits!

12 reasons to work with a turnkey company

12 Reasons To Work With A Turnkey Company

 

At Complete Oak Home we work with our clients from initial discussions to the day they get the keys to their dream home.

We work on bespoke builds and are oak frame specialists, however, because we are independent and don’t manufacture oak frames, we create designs that incorporate as much or as little oak frame as our clients want, and sometimes none at all.

There are many reasons why our clients choose our turnkey service. Here’s a list of the top 12:

  1. We give cost confidence using our unique cost control process
  2. We help and support throughout the whole process so that they can enjoy the experience
  3. We reduce the risks of building a bespoke house because we have an expert in-house multi-disciplinary team
  4. We have everything under one roof so our clients have one main point of contact
  5. Our clients don’t need any house building knowledge or experience
  6. We offer advice and guidance at every step of the decision making process
  7. Our architectural department, Complete Architect, is a RIBA chartered practice, and has to comply with all the RIBA codes of conduct
  8. We undertake an in-depth feasibility study of their project before they fully commit to us
  9. There is no ‘service charge’ for turnkey, as turnkey is not a separate service, it simply means a company with everything under one roof
  10. We work very closely with our clients to ensure they are not excluded from important decisions
  11. We design one-off bespoke homes ensuring clients get exactly what they want
  12. we do not have off the shelf floor plans that we work from because we find custominsing existing designs rarely achieves the right result

If you’re interested in working with a turnkey company, and would like a FREE phone consultation on the feasibility of your project, please call our project consultant, Andy Parker, on 01249 479890.

Looking for a company with a joined up approach for their project, our clients came to us for a full turnkey solution to create their bespoke lifetime home

Our clients were looking for a company who would take care of everything from start to finish and would give them the confidence to go ahead with their project. Without using a turnkey service, they were worried that if they had to coordinate multiple third parties they would be left to sort out all sorts of things that they didn’t know anything about. Then they found us and wanted our full turnkey service, as well as our cost control process.
