If you are thinking of commissioning an oak frame you might naturally be inclined to think that the most important considerations are (in no particular order) your budget, design, external cladding, vaulted ceilings, ensuring the accuracy and delivery of laser level blockwork to receive the long awaited frame etc etc.
These details may of course take up some of your time, but overarching priority should really be given to providing the best, and least cost effective refreshments for the raising team on the big day. A Castle Ring contract usually stipulates at least 3 varieties of biscuits in unlimited quantities, home made scones and/or rock cakes, copious quantities of FairTrade coffee and tea with organic milk and demerera sugar……and that’s before we even start.
We like to finish off the day with a hog roast and home made cider (please).
If you're considering an oak framed building (or larch, or douglas fir), let's talk. We'll gladly put together an outline quote (completely free, with no strings attached). And we need very little information from you to do so.
Equally, we're always here, at the end of the phone, to talk through your ideas.
