~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our unique 'FREE' e-Guides are essential reading for anybody thinking about building high-quality timber-frame houses and/or wanting to build 'super-insulated', airtight homes to 'Passivhaus' standards (and beyond).  Read them and re-read them because they are packed with information that could transform how you go about designing, building and insulating any new house; potentially saving you 10,000's, possibly 100,000's in the process!  Don't miss them ~ they are FREE.  Simply click on the 'blue' highlighted 'links' in the text above!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wherever you are on the website; it is very quick and easy to find what you want by using the 'links' on every page!  For instance; simply clicking on About Us! will let you find out who we are, what we have been doing for the last 40+ years or so and what makes us so unique!  There's a cautionary warning about why projects often don't fulfil the true potential; there are also 'links' to some of the more 'challenging' projects that we, and some of our clients, have successfully carried out over those years ~ you can even 'download' copies and/or print them off if you wish! For any visitor new to this website; it's a very good place to start.  However; if you're really impatient to find out what we can do to help you achieve a successful 'self-build' project or housing development of your own; just click on Professional Services first and all will be revealed!

  • IMPORTANT: We offer a 'VAT Exempt' service to all our non-commercial clients; i.e. private 'self-build' clients; so they can avoid being penalised under the current legislation which doesn't allow 'self-builders' to reclaim any VAT levied on professional fees; despite the fact that everything else to do with building new houses is 'zero-rated' and the VAT can be reclaimed accordingly!

For visitors looking to learn more about designing and/or building superb, high-quality homes; whether commercially for profit or for your own occupation; clicking on "An Insider's Guides!" will take you straight to our unique range of "How To Do It" publications ~ some of which are FREE OF CHARGE ~ all are available for 'download' and/or printing off.  All our "An Insider's Guide" books are intended to show you how to achieve what you want at minimum cost; i.e. to save you money; and, unlike most 'self-build' type books, they really do tell you how to do exactly what the book title claims!

Returning visitors will always find it useful to click on Latest Developments to quickly find out what is new, what has been added and/or updated, etc. on any of our websites.

Visitors more interested in finding out about our specialist 'bespoke residential timber-frame design' services and/or the 'practicalities of DIY; i.e. physically doing some or all the building work' should click on Further Info' to access the 'links' to our 'sister' websites.  Most visitors are amazed by how cheap and simple it is to match anything that using the hugely expensive 'SIPS' or 'package-kit' approach can achieve; whether meeting 'Code For Sustainable Homes' Level 3, building to 'Passivhaus' standard or achieving 'Code' Level 6 standard ~ the so-called 'zero-carbon' homes!  We even have an unique FREE land selling service!

Further Info' is also where you will find 'links' to a huge amount of other information; most of it is FREE to 'download' and/or print off for future reference.

  • For instance you can directly access one of the biggest house design 'libraries' in the world and get thousands of ideas for house types, styles, plans and layouts plus all the various types of ancillary buildings.  You can also find out about "Passivhaus" designed homes, "Renewable Energy", etc. and there is a range of 'Food For Thought' articles that will provoke and stimulate debate about the reality of the Government's stated objectives, the 'major problem' being ignored as 'heat-pumps' and MHRV systems become the 'preferred solution' when building houses to meet the higher 'Code For Sustainable Homes' Levels, the 'hypocrisy' of promoting carbon-emitting appliances to heat the so-called 'zero-carbon' homes and the 'dubious claims' made for 'bolt-on' renewable energy generators!

The essential reading mentioned above for anybody thinking about building high-quality timber-frame houses and/or wanting to achieve 'super-insulated', airtight homes to 'Passivhaus' standards (and beyond) are our unique 'FREE' e-Guides.  Keep on reading and re-reading them because they are packed with information that could transform how you go about designing, building and insulating any new house; potentially saving you 10,000's, possibly 100,000's in the process!  If you haven't already discovered them; simply click on the 'blue' highlighted 'links' in the text above!

"Self-Build Made Simple!"

Using 'Bespoke' Timber-Frame 'Self-Assembly' Kits!

It's the best of both worlds!

It avoids the hassle of getting quotes for materials, placing orders and/or arranging for delivery of the structural materials yet still retains the full benefit of simply paying competitive 'net' trade prices for everything; i.e. NO hidden profit 'mark-ups'; NO manufacturer's factory & office overheads and profits to pay for, NO heavy lifting gear/cranage costs, NO erection 'crew', etc. to push the 'build' costs through the 'roof'!

Some clients have even found that getting a 'self-assembly' kit assembled and erected works out cheaper than the price they were quoted just for the erection of a manufacturer's 'package-kit' for building the same house!

We take care of the 'organisation' so you can concentrate on getting the houses built!
