blog off to another blog if you fancy a change

I am aware that I can be quite repetitive with this blog - it's all pretty much 'look how lovely this is!' or 'Isn't this just the most lovely house?', sometimes a bit of 'this is what I have done this week' sort of nonsense   - but almost always to do with houses (of the Border Oak variety). Sorry about that.

 The truth is that often I am parched for new things to tell you, mainly because I lead a very narrow life and am rarely exposed to anything remotely interesting. So I have decided to put a lot more time and elbow grease into unearthing more original and entertaining snippets of info - if you have any ideas of stuff you would like to see just send me a message below. It will make my life more interesting too?

And to kick off my new blog regime (which, like all 'new regimes' will probably last the best side of two weeks) I have sent you a link (above) to a blog written by a Border Oak customer, currently building their home. I think it will be fun to see how the house grows over time and how the process runs.

I can't tell you who it is or where they are because we want to protect the family's privacy but I can say that they house is a full oak frame 'cottage' (cottage in detail but very large in area), designed by the clients architect, and with a big basement. We are undertaking the full build for them and the project is being overseen by their architect and a Border Oak project manager in tandem. The site is incredible and was originally home to an horrid bungalow - so the new home will be a complete transformation I'm sure.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy their progress.


  1. Thanks for the link. I would love to see some Border Oak Interiors if that was possible?

    All things nice...

  2. Hi Merry! How wonderful, I shall look forward to following their divine Border Oak build! This also shows the difference with Border Oak - they look gorgeous from the very moment the 'skeleton' is in place, not many modern building sites can claim that! Also do you happen to know what floor tiles are used in the Hampshire Holiday Home by Border Oak (it looks like polished travertine to me)? With warmest wishes as always - Glenda xxx
