Marcia Candy’s second self-build project was 34 years in the making. Her successful application was the result of working with the planning office to ensure approval without a hitch. Sadly though, her late husband Will passed away just weeks before planning was approved. Marcia, however, was determined to realise their dream of building an oak frame home. She continued with the project, armed with a background in property development and a vast network of contacts. Her first stop was Fleming Homes for assistance with the building regulations process.
As the planning office suggested a barn style home, Carpenter Oak was the obvious choice to erect the frame. Marcia and Fleming Homes worked with the team at our Wiltshire yard.
“Having visited Carpenter Oak whilst it was being made, and then actually watching the huge crane moving massive pieces of oak into position, was totally amazing”.
