We are over the moon to announce that Frame Technologies has been crowned a winner at the 2020 Build It Awards, securing the accolade in the ‘Best Self Build for Under £250k’ category.

We put forward Birchfield, a three bedroom, two-storey cottage located in Hereford. The custom-designed timber-frame home spans across a plot of 160m2, offering an open-plan living space. You can read the full case study here.

The ‘Best Self Build for Under £250k’ category looked for high-quality self build homes that represent great value-for-money and make the best use of the budget available, all while achieving the homeowner’s requirements.

Homeowner of Birchfield, Leanne Player drew up a strict budget at the start of the project to keep costs low. Working with Frame Technologies who understood the budget, Leanne managed to build a high-quality contemporary home to meet her exact needs for a total build cost of around £170,000.

As a timber frame supplier for self builds, we work with people across the country to build beautiful, bespoke, energy-efficient homes, and we do so through the provision of sustainable, structurally-stable and precision-engineered timber frame, all while being cost-effective.

Some people view self build as being prohibitively expensive but Birchfield challenges this notion and shows how a self builder has managed to build a home that meets their exact needs and lifestyle while keeping the costs low.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s Build It Awards were announced in a special online ceremony on Friday 27 November. The awards recognise excellence across self-build suppliers, projects and services and bring together architects, manufacturers as well as key industry figures in recognition of innovation and excellence in the custom and self build home sector.
