The HYBRID HOME is a permanent residence and is ideal for those on a fixed budget as the price we quote is the final sum you pay. The only time there is any increase on the original sum is by agreement with our client and this is always confirmed in writing prior to action which prevents any nasty surprises on completion of the job.

Our basic price leaves your new home ready for occupation although any Plumbing and Electrics are not included in the basic package, but can be quoted for, once we know exactly what you want.

OUR AIM is to get you into your new home on time and on budget.
