This summer, as the UK began to ease out of lockdown, I received a phone call from Conor Welch, Managing Director of Oak Frames Norfolk. Conor was looking for a copywriter.
He’d found one.
Oak Frames Norfolk is a two-year-old company that specialises in the art – and science – of building with oak. Founded on their own extensive experience in the construction industry, Conor and his business partner, Matt Greenhill, have established a thriving, well-respected business.
The company’s workshop is in Wells-next-the-Sea. It’s here that Conor, Matt, and their carefully selected team of young tradesmen create the beautiful oak-frame structures that you see in the photographs. No screws or nails are used in these sturdy structures – just traditional mortice and tenon joints, strengthened by oak pegs.
I really enjoyed learning a bit about oak frames and about this innovative team. Thank you, Conor and Matt, for asking me to write content for the Oak Frames Norfolk website.
