7 steps to owning a Custom Build home.

In our recent blog which asked the question ‘What is a custom build home? we aimed at clarifying not only the facts around the whole ‘custom build’ strategy, but also to put in place a clear vision of how Oakwrights approach the concept and how working in tandem with a like-minded developer, we can achieve bespoke home builds that satisfy the requirements of a great many would be self-builders without some of the difficult stages associated with building a home from scratch.

To help simplify our custom build process we have created a seven step journey which from the associated diagram will help you clearly see how we set about things once you make that initial enquiry.


Step 1 - VIEW A PLOT: We will arrange for a member of the Oakwrights Team to meet you at the site in question, giving you a close up of the land available and enabling you to get a feel for the surrounding area and potential for the future.

Step 2 - BRING YOUR IDEAS: A visit to Oakwrights will help consolidate your thoughts about your new home. Inject as many ideas as you can so we can tailor the style of house you want to fit your needs both now and in the future.


Step 3 - LET’S TALK: A typical discussion would include an opening dialogue on your plans, viewing plans, drawings and photographs of houses we have already built giving you an insight into the stages and process of building an oak home.

Step 4 - PURCHASE YOUR PLOT: Take a look through our range of available build plots so you can choose a plot that is perfectly suited to your requirements. We can also give advice regarding financing the purchase of your selected plot.




Step 5 - FINALISE YOUR DESIGNS: Oakwrights Architectural Design Team will listen to your requirements and work with you to produce a home that delivers practically and aesthetically.
