How much does it cost to build an oak framed house?
The cost of build depends on so many factors, so it is almost impossible to give a general answer to this question. Things to consider are: what budget do you think you have for your build, how much time pressure you are under, planning situation, dream design you would like, size of the building you would like, your location, listed status, glazing requirements etc. However, we are able to give you an idea of budgetary costs fairly quickly once we know approximately what it is that you are looking for.
Is an oak framed house Eco friendly?
Building a house using oak frame is one of the most Eco friendly build methods. Our green oak is sourced from European PEFC certified sawmills, which means it is grown sustainably as a crop. Green oak requires less energy for processing than other traditional building materials such as bricks or steel. Oak frames work well with the most advanced insulation materials and can be adapted to suit passive house standards if required, reducing overall energy consumption.
