When local company Oakleigh Design Build got in contact about the possibility of making their new website for them, I jumped at the opportunity.
Oakleigh design and build bespoke timber frame buildings, be this entire houses, smaller buildings such as outdoor offices, summerhouse and garages or additions to existing structures such as extensions – it’s all very high end so a website for these guys needed to be to the same standards.
I worked closely with Oakleigh to get the look of the site right for them – we went through a few different revisions of look and feel for the website as the project progressed and they realised that what they initially had in mind wasn’t quite right.
As often happens with smaller businesses, the website design project had to be delayed a few times as Oakleigh were too busy themselves with building projects – I find this frequently happens and try to be as honest and flexible as possible with clients so that there is always a realistic timescale in place for launching a site.
As I do for all my clients who want to be left in control of their website through a CMS system, I did some on site training with Oakleigh as well as leaving them with video files on how to make changes to much of their site, so that they have something to refer back to in the future for items they don’t frequently change.
