What is custom build?

Custom build is self-build made simple

According to an IPSI-Mori survey, 5 out of 10 of us dream of building their own home, 

but only about 1 in 5,000 actually do.


Self-build is really hard.


Custom build makes it easier, quicker, and with less risk.

At Unboxed Homes, we deliver custom build in 2 basic routes, with details that vary depending on the location.

We sell plots with infrastructure and planning permission ready for you to start building or working with one of our construction partners. This route is more common for detached housing outside of city centres.


We build the shell home for you, with a weathertight structure that is a blank canvas on the inside. You buy the shell and fit out the inside by designing and finishing the fit out yourself, or with your contractors. This route is more common in cities where flats or terraced housing is more appropriate.

Sounds great, where can I buy?
