How affordable is an oak framed house?

Real-life oak home case studies show our experience and assist you in controlling costs


If you are considering building an oak framed house you will need to consider costing issues. When self-building, overall project costs are affected by a host of things, but the actual cost of constructing the all important oak frame is relatively simple to predict, details and case studies of which can be found on our oak home cost page.

The value of building with oak


Whilst oak is not the cheapest material to use in the construction of a house, the value is unbeatable when you consider it’s inherent strength and longevity, let alone it’s unique character. One only needs to look around the country to see oak framed houses that have stood for centuries and when cared for correctly will be around for generations, a legacy that appeals to many astute self-builders.

Oak frame techniques have been around for centuries but the modern self-builder who is looking to build for the future is well catered for by Oakwrights. Already a naturally efficient material, our oak homes can take advantage of the latest in efficient technology, features such as ground source pump heating, heat recovery systems, super efficient glazing and our very own encapsulation systems which are highly efficient wall and roof panels (SIPs)
