The Cottage range

One oak house style, six oak frame design templates

The Cottage range

Our ‘Cottage range’ comprises of six modest size homes with features beautifully designed to sit comfortably within a country setting.  Varying in size, each design has a compact central bay with a stairwell that separates the kitchen diner on one side and the sitting room on the other. All the houses in the range have a similar core form with a minimum of three bedrooms, ranging from 100m² to 200m². The houses have been designed with a potential to include the additional benefit of a garden room should you wish.

Internally, different aesthetics can be created, giving you the choice of anything from a contemporary to a traditional design.  Depending on your preference, all six houses can be simplified to a base aisle-framed oak structure, with less oak visible internally, or can be up-scaled to a full post-and-beam style frame that would give a fuller oak structure. Surrounding the oak frame would be a highly-insulated softwood stud-frame that incorporates our WrightWall & Roof systems. Our WrightWall system allows for extremely high levels of energy efficiency, insulation and airtightness.

The Cottage range combines a mixture of vernacular features, traditional form and sympathetic materials to blend in with the surrounding context. Overall this range has been designed to a modest scale yet maximizing the space internally with dormers and vaulted ceilings. Based on the Client and Planning requirements each design may be adapted to suit the particular site context.
