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 They often find that a lot of resources out there are unreliable, outdated, and not realistic.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 (link to top 10 Pitfalls for Self-Builders). 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.

HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:
The team worked with us throughout the duration of our project, from the early design stages through to completion. We now have a wonderful oak framed home which we’ve been delighted to show to many other clients.
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. When we spoke to The Complete Oak Home you actually listened to us and provided us with a design that met all of our requirements.
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.
