Potton Package

We provide an individually tailored package of services and products to meet your needs. We aim to reduce risk, provide value for money and create homes that are unique and exciting.

Architectural design and planning

For most of our customers we provide a comprehensive and competitively priced architectural design and planning service, although we are equally happy to begin working with people after they have secured planning permission using another designer or Architect.

We have a 10-strong in-house architectural design and planning team dedicated to producing considered and creative designs for our customers and then securing detailed planning permission for them.

Building Regulations information

Our Building Regulations information covers all major parts of the Building Regulations, and our experience and track record demonstrate that the homes we design and manufacture will meet the requirements of the regulations.
Our Building Regulation information package includes:

  • Submission to and liaison with your chosen Building Regulation approval provider
  • Drainage design (optional)
  • Substructure structure design and drawings (optional)
  • Superstructure structural design and Building Regulation drawings
  • Standard construction details
  • Energy efficiency calculations

Working with Potton

Brian & Loveday built a Potton Barn in Hampshire. Taking inspiration from the Wickhambrook Barn show home at the Potton Self Build Show Centre, the property was designed as a mirror image to sit better on the couple's plot.

Building structure

Kingspan Ultima Wall Panel, Self Build System, Kingspan Timber Solutions

For all of our customers, we design, supply and construct a high-performance timber-based building system using one of three external wall variants.

All of the structural elements within the external walls, floor and roof are supplied and we also provide all internal walls regardless of whether they are load-bearing or not.

All of our systems are pre-insulated in our factory, which reduces waste, deliveries, and the amount of work carried out on site.

We provide and install double- and triple-glazed windows manufactured from both timber and UPVC as a key part of our package. Aluminium-clad timber windows are also available as an option.

These products not only help finish the look of your new home, but during the construction process help ensure it is weathertight at as early a stage as possible. 

Designs are available from ranges covering contemporary, traditional and heritage styles. The suppliers we work with have been selected based on the performance of their products, scope of their warranty, and their aftercare service.

Whatever the project, our window and door offer provides customers choice and flexibility, supplying unique products tailored to suit individual specifications.

The Product Centre at our St Neots Self Build Show Centre displays a range of the products we are able to offer with an emphasis on our high-performance timber window range.

Stairs & Internal Joinery

Walnut staircase in Potton's Elsworth show home

Staircases are not just a way to access to the higher levels of your new home. They are now frequently the focal point of the hallway and one of the most important architectural features to be fitted.

It is therefore often of great benefit that the design of the stairs is not left as an afterthought, but developed at the same time as the rest of the house design.

Working closely with our long term partners, David Smith St Ives, we pay close attention to detail to ensure that the staircase fits its surroundings and meets your aspirations, whilst achieving the necessary level of technical performance and working within your budget.

Most of our staircases are supplied for your site carpentry team to fit, but with more ambitious designs we are happy to provide a supply and fit offering.
Almost every staircase is unique and personal and our design and sales teams will work with you to develop the product solution that achieves the effect you want to create. Whether it’s simple painted softwood stairs, something traditional constructed from oak with a curved string, or a contemporary design with glass balustrading or cantilevered treads, we can develop your design.

The staircases in our show homes and in our Product Centre exhibit a small part of the designs we are able to create and allow our customers to experience the finished product for real.

Internal joinery (doors, skirting, architraves etc.)

As the final part of our package we offer a wide range of internal doors, skirtings and internal joinery trims. These help to create the internal style of your new home and finish it to the level of quality our customers have come to expect.

The range of products available can be found in the Product Centre at our Show Centre.
