What is MyHouse?
MyHouse is a beautifully designed house that can be built to order. It can be customised to meet your lifestyle and your budgets. MyHouse is the perfect answer to the requirements of modern life because they focus on sustainable and intelligent construction. Precision manufactured in our factory in Slovenia a MyHouse can be designed and built in just 24 weeks. A MyHouse comes with a Premier Guarantee warranty giving you the comfort that it is not only built to look beautiful but built to last.
What is a custom-built house?
Designed by Mæ, built by Riko and customised by you. With custom build homes we organise the design and the build. We take the stress out of building your own home. MyHouse can be customised from a range of options you can choose from. This means you can influence the design just as a self-builder can but without the stress of having to build the house yourself.
What are the steps to building a MyHouse?
MyHouse offers a range of choice and the first thing will be for you to decide between a standard or a super house, 2,3 or 4 bedrooms, open plan or cellular, timber cladding or render, as well as a wide range of internal finishes. We will help you match the best option to your lifestyle and budget. Once you've selected your MyHouse we will apply for planning permission and other statutory approvals, we can put you in touch with specialist custom build lenders. When your funding is confirmed and approvals received we will manufacture your MyHouse in our factory, deliver and construct it and fit it out. We carry out all the building works making it hassle free to get the customised home of your dreams.
Where can I build a MyHouse?
If you have land we can investigate its suitability for a MyHouse and work with you to tailor the house to match your needs and the site. Alternatively if you are looking for a plot we work with landowners such as Igloo who offer serviced plots that you might be interested in. Go to ‘Find a plot’.
Do I need planning permission?
Yes a MyHouse will need planning permission in the UK and we can assist with this. Mæ work across the UK and have extensive knowledge of the countries planning system. If you are looking to build a MyHouse in mainland Europe Riko operate across the continent and we can investigate the local regulations to ensure compliance with legislation.
Can I fit-out MyHouse myself?
We offer different interior packages to suit different tastes and budgets. You can choose how many rooms you want or whether you prefer open plan. You can choose a clean modern look or beautiful timber beams and rafters. Different kitchen and bathroom fittings and choice of floor coverings. We think our range will meet all tastes but if you are keen to DIY we can supply an airtight, watertight house ready for you to fit out (subject to your lender’s requirements)
