Home Plans: Sustainable Oak Frame Home

by Build It
6th August 2018

Richard and Pamela Pearse realised they had the ideal build plot in their very own back garden. With help from Oakwrights, they created a beautiful, energy-efficient oak frame home.

In terms of the finishes, a low-maintenance self-coloured render was specified for the exterior, and works in harmony with the timber boards that have been used to clad portions of the upper storey.

Red roof tiles complement those of their previous house, right next door, which was a stipulation of the planning consent. Composite windows, which feature sleek aluminium cladding on the outside and characterful wood internally, complete the look.
