Our simple and trusted process

1. Your Plot
Your personal Custom Build Homes’ Sales Coordinator will support you to choose the correct plot for your new home, taking into consideration your initial design ideas and your budget – which we will help you establish.

2. Your Design
Once you have chosen your preferred house type and successfully reserved your chosen plot, you will be introduced to Oakwrights to discuss your design options. As you will be creating a home bespoke to your own individual design and specification, albeit with pre-determined elevation, it is important that you are involved in its creation at every stage. Oakwrights will work with you to help shape your ideas into a set of requirements for now and the future.

3. Your Finance
It is important to fully understand your budget and financing capabilities to ensure your custom build experience is fun and as stress-free as possible. Upon reservation of your plot, our friendly financial advisor will speak with you to identify how you will fund your project and agree your budget. After your home is designed and costed, they will arrange a specialist custom build mortgage product, if required.

4. Your Build
Once you have customised the property to suit your own requirements in consultation with Oakwrights, it will then be fully costed by G.P. Thomas. Once you are happy to agree build costs, you will contract with G.P. Thomas who will then build the property in its entirety on your behalf.

As the UK’s leading self and custom build expert, they have financed over 20,000 building projects for people creating their own home.
