The three little pigs…
Once upon a time there were three little pigs. Each of these little pigs wanted to build their own self build home. The first self building little pig decided to build his house of straw. The second self building little pig decided to build his house with an Oakworth Timber frame. The third self building little pig decided to build his house with bricks and blocks.
Along came a hungry wolf, who fancied a pork sandwich. As the wolf walked along he found the first little pig who had locked himself inside his straw house. The wolf called to the self building little pig, “come out or I’ll huff and puff and blow your house down”. The little self builder didn’t come out so the wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house down. Thankfully the little pig was able to run down the road to the second little self builder pig’s house.
Unable to find the first little pig in the remains of straw house, the wolf carried on walking down the road towards the Oakworth timber frame house.
When he arrived the wolf called to the self building little pigs, “come out or I’ll huff and puff and blow your house down”. The little self builder pigs remained inside, so the wolf huffed and puffed and….nothing happened.
Again he huffed and puffed and again nothing happened. Aren’t they clever little pigs!
Disappointed at this, the wolf decided to walk on down the road towards the third little self building pig’s house.
When he arrived he found the third little pig was building in bricks and blocks and hadn’t even finished building the walls because it just takes a lot longer to build. The hungry wolf climbed over the walls and ate the poor little pig!
The moral of the story? There’s a lot less risk if you build with an Oakworth timber frame structure!
