Custom Homes

As an ambitious design-led construction company, we build custom homes for like-minded clients, who share our passion for attention to detail and belief in doing things differently.

We can either design and build your custom home, or if you already have architectural drawings with planning permission in place, we can act as principal contractors, managing and coordinating the entire construction phase.  This process tends to be highly consultative, with significant input from Coldwells to carefully tailor the works to your budget and timelines.

We are selective about the custom home projects we take on and pride ourselves on never having built the same home twice.

Quality is our number one priority and we achieve this by deliberately limiting the number of custom homes we construct each year.

We decide at the beginning of the year how many projects our team can realistically build while maintaining our high standards and then spread out the start dates evenly.

This prioritises quality and enables us to closely plan and manage each custom home. It’s also part of how we can offer realistic timelines to our clients.

Coldwells is a small family business, which means you will never have to deal with multiple site managers, operations managers, client relationship managers or salespeople.

Our director, Ross Booth, personally manages each of our custom builds. You will be provided with Ross’s personal mobile number and he will always be available to you from the initial meeting, right through to the handover the keys and beyond.

You will also receive a login to our online client portal and app which allows you to track progress of your build in real time. You can view daily job schedules, budget tracking, progress photos, site reports, invoices and make selections to customise your new home.

Our Custom Homes Service

  • One Project Manager

    Coldwells is a small family business, which means your one point of contact will be company director, Ross Booth. You will be given Ross’s personal mobile number and he will be available to you throughout the construction phase and even after you move in.

  • 24/7 Access

    You will receive a login to our online client portal and app which allows you to track progress of your build in real time. You can view daily job schedules, budget tracking, progress photos, site reports, invoices and make selections to customise your new home. Whether you’re at home, at work, or on holiday, all the information relating to your build will be at your fingertips.

  • Organised Scheduling

    At Coldwells, we have established a system we call, ‘construction slots.’ We decide at the beginning of the year how many projects our team can realistically build while maintaining our high standards, and then spread out the start dates evenly. This prioritises the quality of the homes we build by limiting the number we have under construction at one time and is part of how we can offer realistic timelines to our clients.

  • Cost Visibility

    We establish a realistic budget at your first consultation and then carefully tailor the works to suit your budget and timelines.  

  • Award-Winning Construction

    Our award-winning team of detail orientated craftsmen are the lifeblood of our company. Through training and promoting from within, and our thriving apprenticeship programme, Coldwells values and high standards are passed from one generation to the next.

  • No Stress

    With Coldwells acting as principal contractors, you have one company held accountable for managing and coordinating the construction of your home. That’s just part of why our clients love the process and are gracious with referrals.

  • Personalised Aftercare

    We believe that project handover, doesn't mean that it's over. We will follow up at one, three, six and twelve months to ensure your home is defect free and put right any snagging issues. We’ll remain as your team, your support and your partner for as long as it suits your needs.
