House Designs and floor Plans
One of the most rewarding aspects of self-building a home, is that you get to design every element yourself. But even when you know what you want, sometimes it’s hard to get started.
Below we’ve created a diverse range of house styles to give you a sense of what you can achieve in relation to floor area, helping create some momentum for your self-build project at the same time.
AFFORDABLE - Our affordable designs are modest in size and designed to provide efficient, low-cost homes for modern family living.
COTTAGE - If you’re looking for a warm, compact, cosy house, then a cottage may be for you! These designs offer single storey living which is geared towards maximising outdoor living, internal space and accommodation.
ENGLISH TRADITIONAL - The designs in our English Traditional section are infinitely timeless, combining grand exteriors with highly liveable floor plans.
MODERN - Our modern designs use clean lines, open plan living, and natural light to create contemporary homes for 21st century living.
NEW ENGLAND - Relying on a simple rectangular shape, these designs are characterised by pitched roofs, dormer windows and distinctive open porches. From the structure to the cladding, they tend to incorporate as much timber as possible!
SCOTTISH TRADITIONAL - Reminiscent of dwellings that traditionally utilised locally-mined stone, these designs tend to be one and a half storey and combine stone cladding with crisp renders.
