UK House Plans and Elevations to Inspire Your Self-Build

We've compiled hundreds of house designs from over the decades to help inspire your new home. Most of our customers use our Ideas Book purely for inspiration. Looking at what other people have done with their self-build projects is a great way to get your creative juices flowing.


If you fall in love with a design we've already built, that’s great, but the most important factor with regards to a self-build is that you are not limited to designs that have been done before. You can create your own self build plans.


Most of the houses we design are completely bespoke or are at the very least a variation on one of the designs from our brochures.


If you don’t know where to begin or if you’re just thinking about the possibility of designing and building your own home, having a look at some of our UK houses floor plans and designs that we have built before is a great way to prepare for the next stage of the process.

  • Our Ideas book and More Ideas books include hundreds of house designs and floor plans.
  • Our Show Centre and Budget Guide include breakdowns of approximate build costs.

When compared to the rest of Europe or North America, the UK doesn’t have a great preference for self-building. We at Potton want to help change that. Here, you can find modern house designs plans that will inspire you to join the growing trend and make your dreams a reality.

Bespoke House Plans — Designed By You

Often, people think Potton homes are all the same, but nothing could be further from the truth. We've come a long way in the past 50 years and today, in 2018, no two Potton homes are the same.


We do have our signature homes that remain firm favourites. Five of these are on display at our show centre. But this only scratches the surface of what we do for our clients. We are specialists in design and we are able to facilitate bespoke house plans becoming a reality.

Nearly all of our houses are designed for each individual family, taking into consideration their lifestyles, tastes, plot/area and budget. We design your dream home, not ours.
