Building a green oak home on a steep site in South West England

After a 2-year search for the right plot Peter and Natasha bought a site in 2016 in the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), on the Devon-Somerset border. Apart from knowing they wanted to make the best of the views, they didn’t know exactly what they wanted to build. They were able to develop and adjust their ideas during their consultations with the local planning department and the pre-application process, which was essential when getting approval for a new build in an AONB.

Peter and Natasha have built a stunning four bedroom reverse-level oak frame home. With the bedrooms downstairs and living area and balconies upstairs, they have maximised the time they get to spend within the vaulted oak framed space and made full use of the beautiful views.
