After exploring the build routes that were available to them, Catherine and Justin decided that using SIPs would be the best way to create the house of their dreams. As first-time buyers and self-builders, their project needed to be as straightforward as possible, so they chose a Kingspan TEK SIPs system, which provided a strong structure, factory precision, insulation and a speedy build time.

Through working closely with SIPS@Clays they were able to create a home that fully met their needs. The SIPs structure was erected in just 10 days using our in-house BBA certified installation team.

Keeping costs down was key and SIPs proved a budget friendly build solution. Catherine and Justin are thrilled with the route they chose.


“As first time buyers we thought that self-building would be out of reach. SIPs allowed us to achieve what we wanted without compromise.”

The result is an award winning, innovative family dwelling with four bedrooms and an open-plan layout to provide a sociable living space.
