Architectural design services

Our experienced architectural design team consult closely with you to visualise and achieve the dream home or garden building you have always wanted. Our designers can cover the whole range of building styles from traditional to contemporary oak framed houses, with every project having its own stamp and unique features – truly a bespoke service.

Once your frame is drafted we will show you a 3D ‘fly-through’ visual to give you a realistic feel for your design. Any adjustments can be made at this stage, prior to final drawings being produced. Once approved, these drawings are converted into machine files for the cutting of your timbers.

Once the frame is completed there are many encapsulation options for finishing off your house and thus, insulating it and protecting you from the elements. These ‘infill’ panels offer amazing thermal efficiency, flexibility and performance to make your oak framed home not only beautiful but ready for modern day living. To learn more about our own ‘WrightWall’ encapsulation panel systems that wrap seamlessly around your oak frame while insulating your home to the highest standard click here.

Iain has been our Project Manager in Scotland since 2014, and during this time he’s supported numerous clients with their oak frame home designs and builds.

So, when it came to determining the overall look and feel of their new home, you can imagine there was one building material which was non-negotiable!

“An oak frame home has a certain ambience, warmth and inherent history,” explains Iain. “We had a traditional post and beam frame in mind, and I love sling braces. We chose to incorporate both into our architectural design.”
