“I bought [a custom build house] because I love the idea of not having to live in a way that someone else has prescribed, but to design that for myself. “

“We bought [a custom build house]
because we wanted to do a self-build
but couldn’t find a plot. “

“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 doing my own self-build.


It was a tough learning curve but I now live in a house that I love. It makes the most of the space, it’s sustainable and it has low bills. I could never again live somewhere where someone else decided everything for me.


I’m on a mission to help more people have the opportunity I had and to live in homes where they have had a say in the design, the layout and the specification.


We sell plots with the infrastructure and the planning permission in place for people who don’t have the time or the risk appetite to do it themselves. Find out more here
