Our Story

Who are RichOak?

2008

Humble Beginnings

After years working for others and an exciting time travelling throughout Asia, RichOak was founded back in rural Shropshire during the 2007/2009 recession… we don’t like to make things easy for ourselves! From the start we had seen how others do oak frames and we knew we could do it better. Our first job started humbly with just the two of us sleeping in a tent next to the garage we were building.

2010

Building Our Reputation

In 2010, we welcomed our first apprentice into the RichOak family. We expanded our portfolio to include extensions, garden rooms and orangeries. Continuing to build our reputation, we honed our skills and perfected our overclad system that enhance the durability of our oak frame builds.

2014

Turnkey & Joinery Workshop

From 2014 we took significant steps forward by offering full-service builds to include planning application, building control and design. A complete turn-key solution!

To ensure we could provide the highest quality joinery all made in-house we created our own workshop in 2015.

2017

Continuing to Grow

Over the past 6 years, we’ve grown our team, added full-time office staff, increased apprenticeships.  We’ve also invested in sustainability by acquiring a sawdust briquette machine to recycle and sell our sawdust for sustainable solid fuel, alongside our solid oak offcuts. Another purchase was our first mini crane… as we are all getting older and the wood doesn’t get any lighter!

2023

Present Day

We are still true to our original roots, offering top quality, great value oak builds using quality materials that are inspired by tradition but built for modern life.

As we journey forward, we are excited to expand our horizons, push boundaries, and continue to set new benchmarks in the world of solid oak construction.
