There is a certain majesty to oak. It’s quintessentially English a frequent muse to many. Tim Crump, our Founder is no different and having built his own business and career around this structural system, it was only a matter of time before he created a storybook to share his passion with others.

This passion has led Tim to embark on a long-term dream of creating a journal of sorts that incorporates the experiences of the people behind the oak projects – incorporating our wonderful clients, crafts people and those that design and build to bring oak frame dreams to life.

Introducing ‘Poems’, and who better to tell you about this labour of love than Tim himself:

Every project has a tale to tell. Every resulting oak frame tells a story and sings a song of life and of what’s possible with the right people around you, a collective vision, and determination in spades.

We’ve been designing and crafting oak framed houses for almost twenty-five years – a quarter of a century.

We needed a name for our journal. The inspiration came one sunny afternoon while sipping a glass of chilled white wine on Steve and Susanne’s soon-to-be kitchen veranda, talking about the home we were building together. ‘What brought you to Oakwrights? How did you begin your oak framed journey?’ Susanne laughed and said it all started with a poem written to our Regional Architectural Designer, Pete Tonks.

‘The oak. It breathes and comes to life around you. It radiates warmth and lights up when the sunlight hits it. It’s poetic, really.’ – Steve Clarke.

The rest, as they say, is history. With great thanks to Steve and Susanne, I welcome you to our very first edition of ‘Poems by Oakwrights’.
