Housebuilder creates self-build software
Modular housebuilder Built & Spaces has created Build My Home software which allows customers to assemble their new home room-by-room on a computer.
The software aims to turn a customer’s vision into a fully constructed house in 10 weeks.
Steve Wilkie, director of Built & Spaces, said: “Everything we do is based on making the process of creating your own house easier and quicker.
“Our unique app lets customers create their home room-by-room, adding the spaces and features that are most important to them.
“Customers can be standing inside their constructed house just 10 weeks later thanks to our unique component-led system that lets our staff assemble the home by hand on site.
“I don’t believe that any other modular housing company can build a customer’s house so quickly, while offering such a personalised design.
“Nobody else is pricing houses this way. We are literally counting the nuts and bolts needed for the project, and removing the guesswork to provide an accurate quote for the customer.”
The Build My Home software creates an inventory of all parts required for the build, meaning that customers’ quotes reflect exactly what elements are used.
Built & Spaces can estimate labour costs accurately as on-site construction is not affected by weather and other delays.
The firm is working on a web-based version of the Build My Home software that will allow customers to design their house from the comfort of their own living room.
