Before, during and after the build, the support and advice, and end product surpassed our expectations. We really didn’t think that companies like this still existed.
Potton have the experience and technical infrastructure to provide informed support, which inspires great confidence to the inexperienced self builder.
We were very impressed with the range of styles and house types Potton had to offer. We really liked the fact that Potton would handle all of the design side of things and also make the planning and Building Regulations applications on our behalf.
The design and planning service was excellent. All aspects of the building design and the internal design, including elements of the staircase, windows and doors was great.
We were received very warmly by the Potton staff each time we visited the centre, and advice and information was freely available without us feeling pressurised or followed around.
