Design Your Own Home

If you have a particular design in mind, or know what you would like, we can build you whatever you need.

Please note that our manufacturer is very busy, and they have asked us to make sure we get a budget first from prospective buyers. We do get a great deal of requests every day, so asking for a budget is simply our way of making our own life easier!

This isn’t necessarily so we can squeeze every last penny out of you, but rather that it then allows us to come up with the highest spec available for your price range, and you can hopefully get the best product for your money.

In order for us to come up with a quotation we will need the following from you:

  • An idea of your budget
  • Well drawn plans, with a floorplan, side and front elevations.*
  • An idea of what method of construction you would like.
  • Any specific planning requirements you need to have fulfilled.

*If you don’t have these, we can make these for you at a fee of £150, refundable if you choose to go ahead with a purchase.

 

This will allow us to come up with an estimate.

 

However, If you wish to proceed with a residential home, we would need to have written planning consent from you, detailed architectural drawings and structural load calculations (which any architect would be happy to make up for you)

We would need to know about access to your building plot, and you will have to provide services and a base etc before work commences.
