One of the most exciting aspects of self-building is getting a house that’s exactly what you want. Unfortunately, narrowing that down can be trickier than you’d think.

To help you shape your dream into a buildable design, we’ve pulled together a few of the stunning, stylish and unique houses that we’ve helped our customers create. Remember that this is simply a springboard for your imagination: we can help you produce a new, bespoke design that’s entirely yours.

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. Remember though: 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 or put your own spin on a classic.

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 floor plans and the designs that we have built before is a great way to prepare for the next stage of the process.

Bespoke House Plans - Designed By You

Often, people think Potton homes are all the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. We've come a long way since 1964, and today, no two Potton homes are the same.

We do have our signature homes that remain firm favourites. But this only scratches the surface of what we can do for our clients. We are specialists in design, and we are able to make bespoke house plans 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.

What Can Potton Do for You?

At Potton, we design bespoke houses, make planning applications, and also secure permission. For our customers, we are the first place to come to once they have decided to take the step from dreaming of a self-build to actually beginning work on it all.

If you decide to work with us on your house plans, you are guaranteed to have some of the most experienced experts in the UK working on your new home. We have been helping self-builders since 1964.
