Pre-manufactured homes

Off-site construction comes with a raft of advantages. Rebecca Foster lays out the facts for you to decide whether this route is right for you
This striking contemporary home was developed by Meisterstueck- Haus. Self builders working with the company can choose from an array of pre-set designs, all of which can be adapted to suit personal preferences. Alternatively, you can work with the firm’s in-house design team to create a bespoke plan from scratch

Serving up speedy construction times, impressive levels of energy efficiency and myriad design options, this route to constructing your own home is popular among self builders. If the word premanufactured evokes images of bungalows erected after the Second World War, just look at some the architecturally bespoke homes this method has delivered in recent years to see how far it has progressed in the intervening period.

Providers of houses constructed largely off-site offer a sliding scale of services. As a self builder, you can pick and choose from a suite of options depending on how handson you want to be. Over the next few pages I’m looking at the pros and cons of this route to help you weigh up whether this is the right solution for your project.
