An interview with Iain Hendry, Meeting the demand for self-build in Scotland

I’ve been passionate about oak framing since the early 90s, so when I got the chance to bring my building expertise to Oakwrights, I grabbed it with both hands. Years on and we’ve forged a leading reputation in Scotland with demand for our products and services rising significantly year on year.

So, if you’re thinking about starting a self-build journey, here’s how we can help turn your dream into a reality:

Self-Build Experts to Guide You

Having made significant investments in our product range and equipment, we’ve also built an in-house team of experts to help guide you through the entire self-build journey. These include specialists that can find your plot for you, architects who can evolve your ideas into stunning designs, and consultants with the contacts and expertise to help smooth the planning process.

Turnkey solutions

If you want to take the stress out of self-building, our turnkey solution supports you every step of the way. We can provide you with an entire team from architects through to civil engineers, electricians and builders. In other words, every trade you will need to deliver your new home, so you don’t have to worry about sourcing them yourself.

Flexible options

If you’d prefer to manage some elements of the build yourself, that’s fine with us too. You can choose to use as little or as much of our expertise as you like. For example, if you just wanted to source an oak frame, we can help you with that and if you’d prefer to use your own team of tradesmen, we’ll work in partnership with them to get the job done as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Added extras

If you require extra support or advice for elements not usually seen on a standard build, we can assist. Renewable energy systems for example, are growing in popularity and we have lots of experience in sourcing and installing these. Or we can simply give you advice on how to insulate your home effectively and explain the various options available to you. Visit our encapsulation page to learn more about insulating your home.

Available nationwide

We’re based in Ayrshire but can work all over Scotland as we have partner builders that can help you no matter where your chosen plot is. These partners have been carefully selected based on their experience and service levels, so you can be assured that your project is managed as effectively as possible and to our market leading standards.
