We design bespoke homes for self-builders, help you obtain planning permission and guide you all the way to completing your new home. We've been helping self-builders for over 54 years.

Potton started as a family run business in 1964 and was acquired by the Kingspan Group in 2006. Our traditional ethos, pride in our workmanship and the high quality standards and customer care that started with the company remain at the heart of everything we do.
