Tailor a design from our Signature Range

Adapt something from our Ideas Book

We have found through years of experience that many of our customers find it hard to work out what they want from their new home without having a defined starting point.

We understand this, and to help we have published over 100 designs from our portfolio for you to take inspiration from. These past designs are collated into our Ideas Books and can be used as a starting point to help shape your new home. This is not a catalogue to choose from, but rather an illustration of what can be achieved. We recommend you use our Ideas Books to steer your initial thoughts on the look, layout and floor plan of your new home. Many of our customers want to build an exact replica of one of our past designs, but often some small amends are required to ensure the house suits and fits your plot perfectly.

Our self-build team will work with you to tailor something from these designs and ensure that we make your house a home – whatever your requirements. Designing your dream home with Potton couldn’t be easier.

You can view five of the houses from our Signature Range at the Potton Show Centre.

Why work with us?

We offer a one-stop-shop for self-builders looking to design a new home, obtain planning permission and building regulation approval.

Once the necessary permissions have been secured we design manufacture and construct a high performance timber frame or SIP structure and our unique package of products and services will help you construct and complete your new home. Why not start your self build journey with a visit to our show centre in St Neots where you can meet our team and we have five self build show homes for you to browse.

We want all of our customers to complete their builds on time and on budget. Because of this we:

provide a cost effective architectural design and planning service and aim to secure planning permission first time around

have an inhouse architectural team who focus only on designing houses for individuals

will design to meet your brief from the outset, but at the same consider structural implications to ensure the house is buildable and there are no nasty surprises later on in the process

will design a house to meet your build budget, as well as work with the constraints and opportunities provided by your plot

will create a design that works with the systems we manufacture and construct so that there's no need for an expensive re-draw following planning approval

design and advise on building regulation requirements from the outset
