“Traditional Cotswold house, impressive galleried hall to open plan living linked to outside space with far reaching southerly views ”

Our clients would like to build a 4 bed oak frame home in the Cotswolds.

Project Background

The owners bought their plot in a pretty village location intending to knock down the existing 1970’s bungalow.

Both are commercial pilots with very busy lifestyles and are keen to have a turnkey service with the design and build of their oak frame home fully project managed.

Having submitted a pre planning application before our involvement the couple were concerned they would be limited to a 7.5m ridge height – which at best would mean a one and half storey house. We’ve since been successful obtaining planning permission for a full 8.3m ridge height two storey oak frame home.

The House

This new home will have four bedrooms, a study and an open plan kitchen and living area opening onto a terrace with views across open countryside. The floor plans are shown above.


This project was completed in Summer 2016. We really love this build as it has so much character from the grand entrance and hallway, the balcony and the oak frame exterior and interior.

The Complete Oak Home offer something rather different, not oak frame manufacturers but oak frame experts who design & build oak frame homes. 


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.
