Over the last 30 years, Potton has helped thousands of people build their own homes, from first time self-builders with absolutely no knowledge of timber frame or how to build a house to experienced builders and developers. Our client base includes people from all walks of life - plumbers, policemen, retirees, farmers, airline pilots and many others.
One of the major benefits of building your own house (self-build) is the huge gain to your lifestyle that comes from being able to influence the design of your home to suit your personal needs and taste.
With technology rapidly changing, you will be able to decide from day one whether you would like to install that sophisticated home lighting or cinema system, or have your curtains and blinds controlled by a single remote control.
Alternatively, you could make your home cheap and efficient to run with the integration of eco-options such as enhanced factory fitted insulation, solar thermal hot water, air source or ground source heat pumps, photovoltaics and many other energy saving and energy generating enhancements. Or just integrate your iPod into the wall with speakers in every room. The choice is yours.
At the end of your project you should have a much larger, more highly specified home than you could ever buy on the open market and, more importantly, its value will be considerably more than it has actually cost you to build.
What do our customers tell us? “One of the greatest rewards of building your own house (self-building) is the sense of personal achievement we feel having created a new home for our family”.
