Leicestershire 2

This timber frame self build is on a Serviced Development in Leicestershire which our clients, together with parents bought plots.

We first met them at The Grand Designs Live Show in 2017 when they were just looking into the possibility of Self-Build.


Although the plot came with the benefit of planning approval, our clients had their own specific requirements that needed an amended design proposal.  Our Design Studio followed their brief and once our clients were happy with the designs, they were sent to the Planning Department and dealt with as a Non Material Minor Amendment.


Our clients preference was for was for timber frame construction so our Materials Department approached several companies for prices for the supply and erection of the frame. We also went out for prices from several of our Main Contractors  to provide the necessary attendance and completion to enable the clients to have a fixed price before starting work on site.


Work is now nearing completion on Plot 12 with our clients busy decorating and they are hoping to move in at the end of August.

If you would like more information about either the self-build opportunities at Shangton or wish to speak with us about other self-build sites, please contact us on enquiries@dm-homes.co.uk
