Mobile Home and Log Cabin Kits

We are timber frame builders that specialise in the manufacture of twin unit mobile homes and static caravans. Each home is bespoke and designed to the clients requirements  We make the timber frame panels for the homes in our factory and then assemble the frame onsite in accordance with the ‘Caravans Act’. The mobile homes do not have wheels like commercial units. They are designed with a timber chassis that allows the building to be lifted onto a trailer and transported away from site. The frames are made to building regulation standards for normal new build housing and have the same insulation values and wall thickness as a new build house.

The finish on the outside of the houses can be timber cladding or render board. There are a number of materials to choose from to suite your price and style. Internally the homes are unusually plaster-boarded although there are other options available.
