I have been here now for 8 years and the bungalow has lived up to all my expectations. Just to say a big thank you to you all who helped us so much with our dream home. I hope you continue to prosper.
Darren was endlessly patient, helpful and good humoured as we went through all the trials and tribulations of the planning application process with the local council and tweaking the designs to gain maximum light/sunshine and places for specific items of furniture. He provided excellent support and ideas and I have strongly recommended Scandia-Hus to others.

All the team at Scandia have tried hard to make this build go smoothly and have succeeded. From the design process, tweaking the planning permission, erection of the timber frame and help after they had finished their part. I would like to thank Nina for just being great and Gavin who has always answered his phone promptly when we needed assistance, from emergencies for last minute bricklayers, to technical guidance and general problem solving when the hurdles inevitably appear during a build. Thank you Scandia-Hus. This was our first build and we are planning the second, Scandia will be getting another call from us soon.

When we decided on a self-build we wanted to benefit from the advantages of a timber-framed house. We had heard about the excellent reputation and long experience of Scandia-Hus who make their product in England. They were prepared to use our own architect’s plans and to work closely with us to ensure that the final product would meet our requirements. As the house went up stage by stage we were greatly impressed by the quality and finish of the build, the advanced engineering and the modern air exchange system. The close cooperation between Scandia-Hus, ourselves and our builder has been highly professional. Our new house has emerged as an impressive modern home which delivers warmth and security.

The house Scandia-Hus helped us create is wonderful. The process was as painless as possible and Gavin was always there patiently answering all my silly questions. The reason we chose Scandia-Hus was because of Gavin. He was on the case straight away, researching local planning applications, we could see how helpful, keen and dedicated he was going to be. Our house is a joy to live in as well as being beautiful. People often comment on how it sits so well in its countryside setting, looking old yet new at the same time. Scandia-Hus created my vision and brought it to life. Thank you to everyone concerned. I cannot say enough good things.
We have built three Scandias since the 80s so must like them! The flexibility of design and standard of finish are difficult to beat. We managed the third build ourselves, made possible only with the advice and assistance of Scandia throughout the process. Great support, great teamwork and great result.
Rod & Liz Probert
Scandia-Hus designed our new bungalow and we can’t believe how pleased we are with it. A large part is due to Aron who helped with the layout and any changes that we required. We found him extremely pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for him to listen to any queries that might occur. In conclusion, we would recommend Scandia-Hus to anyone wishing to have a new build.
Working with Gavin at Scandia-Hus made building our new home from scratch really enjoyable. He took care of guiding us through from planning to completion and worked with us to accommodate our changing designs to bring our ideas to reality, working in close partnership with our builder. We love our new home and creating it was nowhere near as stressful as people told us it would be.
Tim de Glanville
Now in our 4th year – we remain thrilled with our home and so glad we had the opportunity of building to suit our individual lifestyle. From the moment we met the experienced team at Scandia-Hus a rather daunting project became an exciting reality, from negotiating the planning bureaucracy to drawing up plans, and developing ideas for materials. There was always sage advice and help at the end of the phone and in person. While we have no plans for moving at the moment, if the situation ever arose our very first call would be to Scandia-Hus.
Mr and Mrs Banks
We took the plunge to build our dream home and having decided to be as eco-friendly and energy efficient as possible, engaged with Scandia-Hus to provide the timber frame and know-how that we were lacking. The help we received made it possible to keep to our schedules and have peace of mind that there was always a professional available to guide us through the process. Thank you Dan and Amanda and all the team at Scandia for making our dream come true.
