Building Oak Frames
Once the frame has been commissioned and a deposit received, the first available time slot will be booked in to our workshop schedule. The timber takes about 3 to 5 weeks to be delivered and once work commences a typical house frame takes approximately 2 months to construct before delivery to site. In this time ground-works are completed, and the site is prepared for the raising of the frame. Once delivered, the frame can be erected and finished within the week.
We do our utmost to tailor the design to suit your budget and requirements. At the early stages of a project a guideline price can be given, and after the technical drawings are completed a fixed price for the project will be confirmed.
Westwind Oak prides itself on its transparency of price. As all design and frame construction is created off site in our workshop, we are able to offer a fast, cost effective and predictable service. This means there are no hidden costs, the only costs independent to the frame are the engineer’s fee, the architect’s fee and sand blasting. When asked about prices of buildings, actual examples of recently completed projects are used as a guide, rather than a quote worked out from a formula. This has proven a far more realistic and accurate method. For more information or to request a free consultation, call us on 01934 877 317.
