Package build or kit home companies aim to provide a stress-free building process, where the home is fully specified at the design stage then often prefabricated off site. This leads to a quick and efficient build process with fewer unexpected surprises — and thus more certainty when setting the budget.

Kit homes are no longer limited to a series of pictures chosen from a brochure. Bespoke options are available, while off-the-shelf designs can be altered to ensure they suit your lifestyle needs.
