TRY BEFORE YOU BUY: THE OAKWRIGHTS SHOW HOME

EXPERIENCE THE PLEASURE OF LIVING WITH OAK AT OUR 5 STAR SHOW HOME

 

Oakwrights are able to offer prospective clients the unique opportunity of staying overnight in our fully functioning show home in what we call our ‘Try Before You Buy’ option. Designed and built by Oakwrights, it serves to demonstrate both how attractive and enhancing an oak frame home can be to live in, and as an example of how creative and intelligent design can be used to stunning effect even on small and awkward plots such as this.

BOOK A STAY TODAY AND BE INSPIRED TO BUILD YOUR OWN OAK FRAMED HOME

 

Located just five minutes drive from our offices, and overlooking idyllic pastoral scenery, the show home is a ‘Post & Beam’ country house in a style we describe as ‘Country Contemporary’. Primarily open plan, with the frames themselves dividing the room space downstairs, it has been finished to the highest specification throughout and is a testament to thoughtful design coupled with tasteful décor. 

Since its launch, this opportunity has proved a great success with those that have stayed, as evidenced by the remarks in the visitor’s book. Many have commented how it has given them inspiration not only with regard to design ideas, but also to go on and build their own dream home.

IS LIFE IN AN OAK FRAMED BUILDING FOR YOU?

 

Bringing a whole new meaning to the term ‘home shopping’, the company’s stunning post-and-beam Herefordshire show home is clearly a sales tool, but it also offers so much more to the prospective self-builder, keen to discover if life in an oak-framed building is really for them. An ill-fitting pair of shoes can be hidden away at the back of the wardrobe and forgotten, but an ill-fitting house will be a constant source of irritation, and the outlay could run into hundreds of thousands of pounds. Staying at The Woodhouse is the ideal way to consolidate your ideas and to conjure up your own dream home.


The house isn’t designed to act as a precise template - every building plot is different and each homeowner will create their own specific wish-list. Its real purpose is to allow you to touch the materials, to experience the living spaces at different times of the day and to discuss in private your likes and dislikes. Left to your own devices, you can play with the lighting and music programmes, test out the body-jet showers and bounce on the king-sized beds with no-one to comment or disapprove. 


Simple experiences - such as the knowledge that travertine flooring feels surprisingly warm under bare feet - are just as important as the weightier technical issues. A night or more at The Woodhouse is probably the best investment any prospective self-builder could make in terms of sheer enjoyment, value for money and inspiration. Photographs simply can’t capture the spirit of the building or convey the sheer quality of workmanship, and if anyone needs further motivation before embarking upon their own build then this is it.
