Contemporary oak framed homes offer the best of both worlds when it comes to self build projects — the unparalleled sense of timelessness and elegance that oak provides as well as an opportunity to cater for modern tastes and a busy lifestyle. 

The last decade or so has seen a huge spike in interest in combining the latest mod-cons and styles with this inherently comforting structure: modern rustic interiors with lime-washed timbers; a bold, colourful kitchen with country-inspired fixtures; and cosy living rooms with both a warming stove and a place to catch up on a good series.
