I Want to Build an Oak Framed Building - Where do I Start?

Thanks to their green credentials and ability to blend in with our historic landscape, oak framed buildings are becoming an increasingly popular option for homeowners and those looking to build their own oak framed house.

Although here at Hamlet Buildings our actual construction times are relatively fast, as with all good construction projects it pays to put in all the necessary preparation! Part of the initial process of building an oak framed building is getting the design just right, and this is a process that we undertake closely with our customers.

When going through the design process, we can use CAD software to help you 'walk through' your design and understand how the different elements of your timber oak framed building will work in situ. But before we even get to the design stage, we recommend that our customers come to us with a solid idea or concept of what they're looking to achieve. Bringing us a brochure, photographs of an oak framed building that you've visited or passed by, or even just providing cut outs from magazines is a great starting point. We can provide you with basic building and house designs but we're absolutely committed to a bespoke design process to develop the perfect look, layout and feel for your future home.

Once we've got a good idea of your favoured design concepts, from here we can discuss the design options open to you and what 'extras' may be of benefit. This may be somewhat of a 'trial and error' process before your design is submitted to an architect, but get it right early on and the remaining process - including obtaining planning consent and working out costings - and the rest should be relatively straightforward. At Hamlet Buildings we're very happy to work with architects, and in some cases can recommend professionals from our reputable network.
