Not all property developers are the same

We believe in profit with purpose
We believe in design, quality and the environment
We believe you should be able to design your own home

This is different
This is custom build


Custom build is self-build made simple

Our Blenheim Grove project has won the BuildIt Award for Best Custom Build Project or Model, the Silver Award for London Design Awards 2021, as well as made the shortlist for the Telegraph's Home of the Year 2021

“I’ve bought House 56 at Blenheim Grove because I love the idea of not having to live in a way that someone else has prescribed, but to design that for myself. I can’t wait to become a custom builder.”

“We bought 60 Blenheim Grove
because we wanted to do a self-build
but couldn’t find a plot. A shell was the
next best thing.”

“We were excited to take on this project so we could fully accommodate our design choices and the way we like to live. We really love to entertain, so we particularly jumped at the chance to create a big, beautiful living area.”

I set up Unboxed Homes after building my own house.

It was a tough journey but I now live in a house that I love.

Since then, I’ve been on a mission to help more people build their own homes and to find ways to make it easier.

We help people who don’t have the time, resources, or the desire to find a plot and do their own self build from scratch but still want to be part of the creative process.
