Oak framed house of light

A light filled oak framed house to provide a modern country home.

Location: Worcestershire

Completed: 2014

A self build project involving all the family.

John and Ann Sterry wanted a light-filled oak framed house to provide a modern country home.  They secured a plot in a leafy suburb of Worcestershire. Having previously lived in a 300 year home they were looking to build something modern a light but with similar finishes.  

John and Ann recommend being on good terms with the planning office.  They also found beneficial to speak to neighbours to establish any concerns to enable them to reassure or adapt plans accordingly. Hiring a local planning consultant, who had a fuller understanding of the planning guidelines, helped them to secure their planning consent.

The couples son, Robert, was appointed as architect for the project.  Robert took inspiration from John and Ann’s love of timber-framed buildings.
