Oakwrights Custom Build

Welcome to Oakwrights Custom Build. We are a division of Oakwrights; the oak frame homebuilding experts from Herefordshire. We are beginning our adventure into the custom build development sector and have set up the custom build division to acts as an enabler who is working alongside landowners to deliver small developments where you can design and build your perfect Oakwrights home in spectacular countryside locations.

We work with landowners to help them achieve planning permissions on their land and then we create the Oakwrights design package which enables plot purchasers to purchase a fully serviced plot - which is ready to build on - and then work with our experienced design team to create the ideal home for you.



Creating your home with Oakwrights
Custom Build


Custom building your home as part of an Oakwrights Custom Build development can significantly ease the process of creating the home you have always yearned for. Unlike our many self build projects over the years, our team is involved earlier. We are part of the enabling process which includes servicing the site and your plot before you purchase it. Therefore you don't have to worry about where the local sources of power or telecoms are, all the servicing is done for you and included in the plot price. This de-risks the homebuilding process for you and can significantly speed up the delivery of your new home, saving you money as well! 


Once you have chosen which plot is the one for you, you will work with our expert architects and design team to create your new Oakwrights home. This is a very intimate process as we look to deliver a home that not only fits the requirements of you and your family now, but also into the future where your circumstances may have changed and family has grown. 

You will be involved at every stage and will work personally with the design team to agree the size and shape of the house and its interior layout as well as what materials are used on the external facade. You can choose whether you want a wood burner, underfloor heating or smart technology built into the design and it will all be costed in an easy to understand transparent fashion so you are always in control of your finances. 


Once the design is complete and we have supported you through any planning processes it is time to start building! Again, this stage is flexible also. You can choose to do some of the work yourself, which could save you money in labour costs or you can leave it to us and we will hand you the keys on completion. 

Building with oak is unique, the character it exudes seeps from the building over time and once the house is completed, little things can move as the wood settles and matures. Oakwrights will return to your home after it has been lived in for a while to perform a snagging exercise to make sure everything is as it should be, making sure your home stands the test of time, like the oak it is framed from, it can last centuries.
