Visit a cottage style home in Herefordshire 17 Jun 2022 10:00 – 18 Jun 2022 14:00

Whether you have a country-style cottage or a more contemporary oak frame home design in mind, we look forward to welcoming you to our Herefordshire open day which includes a tour of a contemporary cottage style home which is kindly being hosted by the owners and the Oakwrights team and with the Oakwrights workshops just around the corner, a tour of our industry leading workshops is also included.

What can I expect from this open day?

For many of us, designing and building a home will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one where you should feel fully supported, confident, and most importantly, inspired.

When you arrive for your appointment you will be greeted by Craig and LB, the homeowners and members of our team before enjoying a guided tour, where you can see, feel and truly immerse yourself in all aspects of the oak frame, the fixtures, and finishes.

You will also have the opportunity to talk through your ideas with a member of our Architectural Design team, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have on aspects such as planning permission.

Meet the homeowners

Craig, and wife LB chose to build a contemporary oak frame cottage style home in Herefordshire for their growing family. Having project managed the build themselves and also taking on much of the construction work they have a wealth of top tips about self-building to share with you.

They will very kindly be opening the doors of Manuka Cottage, from Oakwrights Cottage Range, where you can see how they have used the character and charm of oak to create a contemporary young family home on a modest budget.

Come along and discover how they worked with Oakwrights to create their dream home. The couple also maximised the use of off-site production, using our WrightWall encapsulation system, which is made 500 metres away at Oakwrights Workshops, which you are also able to tour during your open day visit.

For more information about offsite production listen to our latest podcast where Craig discusses his self-build experience. Click here to listen via spotify.
