Self Build Homes
Self-Building Contractor, Brada Developments, have achieved a milestone in the construction phase of this spectacular oak framed dwelling with the completion of the main roof and subsequent protection from the weather.
This traditional, bespoke oak timber framed home is the life’s ambition of our clients and we have worked closely with them and oak frame specialist Oakwrights to deliver this unique scheme.
Whilst employing traditional skills and materials in crafting this amazing project, we have still considered the importance of high performing materials and standards of workmanship to ensure that this new home will conform to the highest standards in terms of thermal performance and robust airtight construction. The scheme incorporates renewable energy in the form of PV solar panels as well as a heat recovery system to minimise heat loss ensuring the efficient use of energy over the life of the building.
Given the nature of oak as a building material, meticulous attention is required at the many construction interfaces to accommodate the expected movement without compromising the air tightness and associated heat loss. This involves lots of care and attention in the many processes and is certainly a labour of love for our clients and our construction team!
Internal fit out works are about to commence whilst externally, we are advancing the rendering work before the onset of the colder and wetter months ahead. The scheme is scheduled to be complete in the New Year and we look forward to seeing the full magnificence of this unique and spectacular scheme!
