Custom build is a new concept in house buying which enables you to get the home you want without having to be a pioneering self builder. Typically a local authority or housing developer buys a large plot of land, obtains outline planning permission for a number of homes and installs services and infrastructure. These plots are then available for you to buy.
Buying a custom build plot fast-tracks you through much of the groundwork, but you will then need to decide who to appoint to design and build your home. This is where we come in! We specialise in ensuring that the remainder of your journey towards a new home continues to be simple and enjoyable. This philosophy permeates through everything we do.
Depending on your requirements, we offer a choice of ways to get there.
Choose your preferred design route
Focusing choice where it matters most to you.
The Facit Tailored Home is a custom built property at a competitive price. It’s still a unique, architect-designed home, but we work within a set of parameters to ensure that we can offer you the best value. Once we have developed the building’s overall form, you are able to choose from a range of carefully selected products and finishes to personalise your home.
Total freedom over the final look and feel of your home.
Our Couture service starts with you – your routine, hobbies, or way of entertaining. Your unique idea of home forms the basis of our design. Once we have defined the overall form, we work with you to find products and finishes that fit. Our in-house joiners can furnish your home with bespoke staircases, kitchens and wardrobes. Working in this way gives you total freedom over the final look and feel of your home.
We construct the building shell so that it is weather-tight and then hand it over to you. This is ideal if you want to save money and want to get involved in the construction process. We provide you with a fully detailed design and specification and visit site regularly to check that you are on track.
We take complete responsibility of the fit out through to completion. This is ideal if you prefer the idea of the construction process being managed for you. We hand you the keys, and you can start moving in.

The Facit Chassis™
Every home is built around our unique Facit Chassis™. This guarantees clean lines and a seamless finish.
Our Homes are built using our own digital fabrication process meaning we have complete control. We apply cutting-edge technology to the traditional aspects of building a home, avoiding the confusion and misunderstandings that come with conventional construction. The result: quality, performance and punctual delivery.
We’ve spent years developing a system which achieves the highest levels of comfort as efficiently as possible. We’ve been careful to achieve the optimum balance between initial investment and ongoing running costs. Our super insulated walls come as standard. In other words, we’ve figured it out so you don’t have to.
