Our story

1999

Oakwrights’ story begins

Our story begins as Nick Price joins Tim Crump with the idea of setting up an oak frame house building company.

1999 1 Galllery

2000

Investing in our architectural practice

Terry Rutty is appointed as our first Architectural Designer. We invest in 3D CAD software to help bring the architectural design process to life for our customers.

2001

The Lakes

The Lakes: Operations are moved to Tim’s childhood home in Swainshill, Herefordshire. The house is converted into office space and the first Oakwrights workshop is constructed. A 100ft x 40ft space is created with an overhead crane to make the movement of oak easier.

2002

Building on our solid foundation

We invest in a Hundegger K2 CNC joinery machine, the first of its kind to be brought into the UK. We also add four Dietrich’s software packages to produce the machine files to run the K2.

Darren Blackwell joins as an architectural designer, expanding our design team.

2003

Bill Keir joins as general manager. Bill was one of the original early carpenters who helped to re-introduce oak frame carpentry into the UK. He also brought a tremendous depth of knowledge to the team from working on and directing some of the UK’s most prestigious oak frame projects.

Pete Tonks and John Williams further strengthen the architectural team, adding their individual styles and character to our designs.

2005

We start renovating a two-storey old barn next to the main office. This gives us additional space for the growing design team and allows us to create a training programme, so we can recruit two new trainee frame designers each year.

2006

Roland Horwood is appointed as frame design manager and implements the oak frame designer training programme.

We gain a full patent for our 3i infill panel system, along with TRADA certification, which means the traditional panels can be used on NHBC projects.

2007

Our show home, The Woodhouse opens its doors, allowing clients to experience an oak frame first hand.

We begin creating a new larger machine workshop on an adjacent site to the main office, to meet growing demand. This allows two 80ft overhead cranes to be installed for lifting and moving, making production more efficient.

A new Hundegger K2i beam processing machine is also commissioned.

Our oak framing apprenticeship scheme has its first intake of carpenters.

After nine years of working with Oakwrights, Charlie Mills is announced as our new Managing Director. Charlie joined Oakwrights in 2012 and since then has worked alongside all departments, before managing our Outbuildings and Extensions division. Now, Charlie is excited to drive Oakwrights forwards, while Tim Crump takes up the role of Chairman.

Passivhaus certification achieved for the UK’s second oak frame home and the first oak frame Bed and Breakfast in the. This was an in-house project where our teams worked with our clients from the initial design stage, through the planning application process, to the momentous day when their bespoke oak frame and Natural encapsulation system was erected on-site, meeting the rigorous Passivhaus building standards.

LOREM IPSUM

Step inside their home

Once inside Church Cottage, you are warmly welcomed by a light and spacious open-plan layout. Walking around to the left, you arrive in Charlie and Helen’s traditional Shaker-style kitchen from Handmade Kitchens of Christchurch and their dining area which benefits from double doors leading out into their back garden.

Their cosy living room (pictured above, with interior furnishings by Zest Home Staging) is then nestled on the right hand-side of their cottage, featuring an exposed red brick fireplace, bringing the exterior look in, and a chunky oak mantelpiece above.

“The classic, open-plan layout of a cottage is simple, elegant and efficient: a compact central bay with a kitchen on one side and a living room on the other,” explains our in-house Chartered Architect, Craig Alexander. “This arrangement dates back to traditional designs.”

Working with their Frame Designer from our team, Emma Irvine, Charlie and Helen opted for an aisle-style oak frame which runs through the centre of their cottage, adding elusive structure to each space.

From here, your eyes are drawn to their bespoke oak staircase which is purposefully positioned in front of amazing, full-height face glazing on the rear elevation, where sunlight perfuses through, naturally illuminating both floors.
