Building with oak frame has never fallen out of favour, and self-builders adore the character that this construction technique can bring to a new property. However, if you want to make the most of this amazing material, you need to work alongside a specialist who knows oak framing inside and out.

Welsh Oak Frame’s in-house team live and breathe oak frame architecture; they are amongst the most highly-skilled and respected designers in the field. Their knowledge and understanding of self-builders means that they can expertly create stunning homes that reflect your vision and budget – whatever that might be. The architectural team at Welsh Oak Frame understands the intricacies of timber framing better than anyone else, so can create a home that makes the most of both your plot and the oak.

Welsh Oak Frame know that the building system is ideal for those who want to produce a new house with the quality of a period property, and can make it work equally well with modern designs, too, think large glass panels and open plan rooms. Many of the homes that Welsh Oak Frame is asked to design are combination of the two – traditional frontages with a contemporary-style rear.

When you choose to work with Welsh Oak Frame, a design professional will discuss the architectural options with you, and invite you to visit the company at its workshop in Wales. You’ll be able to see how the frames are crafted, as well as get a good idea of how the build system works. Once you have given your designer a list of your requirements and discussed your style preferences, they will come and visit your site to see the best orientation for your new home and work around any intricacies that the plot may have. Once a full design brief has been agreed, you can expect to see a draft of your new home’s plans in just two weeks. And from there, you are well on the way towards building the house of your dreams.
