Timber Frame DIY Kit

SELF BUILD / PROJECT MANAGEMENT OPTIONS.

Our company has always been focused on providing low-cost kit build packages for self builders and developers. We always manufacture and fully assemble onsite the timber frame shell (we don't supply just panels) after which many customers choose to complete the build themselves, either by project managing local subcontractors, or, if you are a keen and skilled DIY'er,  undertaking the labour elements yourselves.

What we do:

- Design, Engineering and Legal Report.

- Manufacture and assemble onsite the timber frame including all internal walls.

- Supply and Fit Insulation.

What you do: (manage local trades for…)

- External Finish, Cladding, Windows Roof, Soffit + fascia, Rainwater goods.

- Plasterboard and skim.

- 1st and 2nd Fix Plumbing and Electrics.

- Decorating. 

- Internal Carpentry; Kitchen, Doors + Skirting, Floor Finish.

Whether you're looking for a complete build or just want to discuss the possibility of self building, we're here to help. Our team of experts can advise you on the best way to achieve your desired results, and we're always happy to answer any questions you may have. Contact us today to discuss your self build options and get started on creating your dream mobile home.

TIMBER FRAME 'Wind-and-Water Tight'

We always manufacture and fully assemble the timber frame structure and leave at a stage ready to take finishes.

  • External Walls are wrapped in breather membrane.

  • Roof is felted and temporary batten. 

  • All internal walls fitted. 

  • Floor is boarded and 'ready to take carpet' 

  • Insulation if fitted to the floor, fitted to Ceilings and supply only for walls. 

We specialise in kit builds, which are perfect for self builders and developers who are looking for low cost build packages. We deliver and erect the structural frame of the build, and we also supply insulation. Self Build Kits allows you to keep our build costs low, while still providing a high quality product. We look forward to continuing to serve the self builder and developer community.
