SELF BUILD / PROJECT MANAGEMENT OPTIONS.
We have always been committed to providing low-cost kit build packages for self builders and developers. We understand that many of our customers are looking for a cost-effective solution that allows them to take control of their own building process. That's why we offer a range of services that cater to the needs of self builders and developers.
Our process begins with the design, engineering, and legal report, which helps to ensure that your home is structurally sound and compliant with all relevant laws and regulations. From there, we manufacture and assemble the timber frame on site, including all internal walls. We also supply and fit insulation to help ensure that your home is energy efficient and comfortable to live in.
After the timber frame is complete, you have the option to take over the building process by managing local trades for the external finish, cladding, windows, roofing, soffit and fascia, rainwater goods, and other elements of the build. Alternatively, you can choose to undertake these tasks yourself if you are a skilled DIYer.
No matter which option you choose, we are here to support you every step of the way. We offer a range of services and resources to help you build the home of your dreams, whether you're a seasoned self builder or new to the process. Contact us today to learn more.

Everything You Need to Know about Low-Cost Kit Builds for Self Builders & Developers
Are you a self builder or developer looking for an affordable and reliable way to build your dream home? If so, you’ve come to the right place! At Habitat Mobile Homes Ltd, we specialise in low-cost kit builds that are perfect for self builders and developers. We provide everything you need to get started on your project, from design and engineering services to the manufacture and assembly of the timber frame onsite. Let’s take a look at what we can do for you.
What We Do
We provide a comprehensive design, engineering, and legal report service so that all of your needs are met. This includes designing the structure of your building based on local regulations as well as calculating how much timber is needed for the job. We also manufacture and fully assemble the timber frame (including all internal walls) onsite so that it is ready when we arrive. In addition, we can supply and fit insulation at your request.
What You Do
Once the timber frame has been assembled, there are still some steps needed before construction is complete. This includes having local subcontractors finish external elements such as cladding, windows, roofing, soffit + fascia, and rainwater goods; plasterboarding and skimming; plumbing and electrics; decorating; and carpentry work such as flooring and stairs installation. All of these processes can be managed by yourself if you have sufficient knowledge in those areas or project management skills if not.
We understand that every self builder or developer has different needs when it comes to constructing their dream home or development project. That’s why we offer customisable low-cost kits that provide all of the materials required for their individual projects while also taking into account any additional requirements they may have along the way.

The Benefits of Self-Building Your Home
Self-building your home can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It's an opportunity to create a space that is truly your own, tailored to your specific needs and preferences. But beyond the personal satisfaction of creating your dream home, there are a host of other benefits to self-building.
One of the biggest advantages of self-building is the potential for cost savings. By managing the process yourself, you can avoid paying builder's markups and other associated fees. You can also choose to use lower-cost materials or do some of the work yourself to further reduce costs.
Self-building gives you complete control over the design of your home. You can work with an architect or designer to create a custom plan that meets your specific needs, rather than being limited to pre-existing designs or layouts.
When you self-build, you have the ability to oversee every aspect of the construction process, ensuring that your home is built to your exact standards. You can choose the materials and finishes you want, and ensure that they are installed correctly.
Self-building also gives you the opportunity to incorporate energy-efficient features into your home. You can choose to install solar panels, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, and other features that can help reduce your energy costs and environmental impact.
Pride of Ownership
Finally, there is a sense of pride and ownership that comes with self-building your home. You have put your own blood, sweat, and tears into creating a space that is uniquely yours, and that can be incredibly rewarding.
At our company, we offer a range of self-build options to help you create the home of your dreams. From low-cost kit packages to full-service project management, we can help you through every step of the process. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your self-build goals.
