When Howard Creber was looking for a porch to ‘finish off’ his lovely home in Oxenhope, in the beautiful ‘Bronte Country’ near Haworth, he did what we all do – he ‘Googled’.
He was pleased when he found Oak by Design. He had wanted to use a local company, and we were! He also liked our website saying it was easy to navigate and that the clear details, photographs and oak porch case studies made it easy to understand.
He needed the oak porch on a ‘supply only’ basis as his son-in-law, who had built the dwarf wall for the porch, and Howard were going to erect the porch themselves.
Even though he lived locally, Howard dealt with everything over the phone and emails. A detailed diagram was sent to Howard prior to manufacturing for him to clarify all the measurements. Once he approved the details, it went into production. The oak porch was delivered in sections for easier installation.
After the oak porch was finished, Howard said ‘It has transformed the front entrance to our property, which, being a gable end, had a rather ‘boxy’ look. The porch has great character and drawn many complimentary comments. Richard Penny was always available to offer support and advice’
His last comment to us was: ‘It does look good!’
