Prefabricated (prefab) homes are manufactured offsite then transported to their end location where a specialst team erect the timber frame.
Benefits of prefab homes are that you can work with a package company such as Potton to design a bespoke home to your exact specification.
Timber frame and structural insulated panel (SIPs) homes are factory engineered and ensure a high level of accuracy as well as being highly airtight meaning your new home will be thermally-efficient and cheaper to run.
In a word yes, our homes are prefab houses but this term, along wtih others including kit homes and flat pack homes tends to be misused and misunderstood. Our homes are bespoke and designed for the individual or family who will end up living there.
Our homes are not 'off the shelf' nor selected from a catalogue range of house types, though this was the case many years ago.
Today, the majority of our self build homes are completely bespoke and are architecturally designed to suit your plot, lifestyle and budget.
All of our timber frame homes are manufactured here in the UK at our factory in Bedfordshire. If you'd like to takea tour of our factory then why not attend our free Introduction to Self Build seminar day which includes a factory tour.
The term 'flat pack home' is another way to define prefabricated homes. This phrase is often used to describe timber frame homes manufactured within a factory before being delivered to site where they're constructed into your new home.
