Kit homes are ideal for those who want to self build an individual home but don't have the available time or knowledge in order to manage the project first hand. Also known as turnkey or package self build, the route means the house is fully specified at the design stage – including doors, windows, plugs, switches and everything in-between – so by the time you begin on site the management is a doddle. 

Usually prefabricated off-site, kit homes are a quick and efficient build process with fewer unexpected surprises, and thus offer more certainty when setting the budget.
