Jodie Kitto has just embarked on her own self build timber frame journey, here she takes you through her planning and build experiences…

March 2014 – Planning

I applied for planning on the cottage, complete minefield having not done anything like this ever before! How exciting. Reading through all of the forms, some of it just makes no sense at all!

Designing the exterior look and build of the house was relatively easy as I am a traditionalist and wanted a cottage feel and did not want to ‘over house’ the plot. In and out of the architects’ and finally got to grips with the details that are needed – things that you would never notice on a building!

Carpenter Oak will be following Jodie’s self build timber frame journey, check back for updates! Or why not get in touch to talk about your plans? We’re happy to talk through you ideas at any stage – in fact the sooner your timber framer is included in your discussions, the smoother the rest of the process.
