Pre-fab homes have come a very, very long way. What was once a byword for drab and temporary architecture has transformed into design-based modern homes of the highest quality. Working with experts in the field, you can have the house you want, constructed off-site and delivered to your prime spot.

Discover the difference

The cheap materials and one-size-fits-all approach of pre-fab and flat-pack houses are a thing of distant memory. Companies like Baufritz have pioneered an approach that combines natural materials, design knowledge and impeccable service to help you realise your ideal home. While you can choose to buy an ‘off-the-peg’ pre-fab home, Baufritz specialise in working with you to make your aspirations come alive. The first step?
