In the United Kingdom, as with other countries, the cost of establishing a home is moving further away from first time buyers and others on a low income or those just looking for a holiday home.  Is there an alternative to struggling for 20 years to own a home of your own - in the process paying a mortgage several times the value of the house itself, in interest payments alone?  What if we were to tell you you we could install a luxury timber house for around £50,000, fitted.  This includes 3 good sized bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, a bathroom, and ample living space ready for you to move in.


If you are considering a mobile home, our transportable homes are the exciting alternative, with space, quality and style you may not have thought possible in a mobile home.


MOBILE HOMES UK's transportable homes comply fully with the Caravan Acta as mobile homes, so they're exempt from VAT and Building Regulations. They can be positioned just about anywhere you can site an ordinary caravan.


They're the only mobile homes available in the UK to this approved sectional design with cladding finishes available for you to choose. They are insulated to provide extra warmth, and the interior can be fitted with beams, or whatever takes your fancy, to give a wonderful sense of space.


Whether you're looking for a holiday home or just alternative living accommodation, MOBILE HOMES UK transportable homes offer big advantages for site owners and developers as well as private owners







MOBILE HOMES UK's transportable homes are treated as mobile homes for Planning purposes. The advantages are enormous, because an old caravan, for example, can be replaced with a luxurious transportable home with all the modern conveniences. Being that our transportable homes are also VAT free, this alone  can save thousands from your budget.


These mobile homes are also ideal for rapid installation for activities such as golf, walking, swimming, sailing and more - with all the comfort and quality of more expensive units.  The comfort is so good, you might decide to install one on any plot with outline planning permission, such as a brown-field site that might not otherwise be a practical proposition.



Our design is suitable as a replacement to any existing mobile home as an upgrade.  Hence, if you are a farmer looking for supplementary income or you might run a game farm, holiday park or other business, this may be the upgrade you are looking for.  Indeed, you may be considering setting up a holiday home in another location.  Our mobile homes are considerably less expensive than equivalent imported log cabin designs.  Should you already have a quote, why not let us beat it for you.


All you need is a plot of land with planning permission for a mobile home. Or, if you do not yet have planning permission, but own, or are thinking of purchasing a suitable plot, please contact us to see if our planning expert can help - also at affordable rates.  The advice we can offer at this stage, could also save you considerably.


Our unique design of mobile home is approved by the DETR.  Our planning expert has overcome obstacles to planning consents in many cases in the south east of England, and now obtained consent for this design.


For tourist attractions, a log cabin can be adapted to make perfect payment kiosks, shops, changing rooms, toilet and shower blocks, ice-cream kiosks and cafes, clubhouses and sports pavilions.  With a low grassed roof, these mobile homes can really blend into a sensitive landscape.




A typical Mobile Homes UK timber design



Mobile Homes UK can organise and oversee the complete project on your behalf.  Alternatively, you may wish to run the project yourself, in which case the overall cost will reduce.  You may even be a builder and just want our help with the design of your home for compliance and to obtain planning permission. 


Whatever you decide we are waiting to hear from you and ready to assist. If you live near to Sussex, you can visit our show home.  If you are considering buying a mobile home, please be sure to speak with us before approaching your local authority. Our design is so recently confirmed, most councils will not be familiar with the approval and as our design is copyright protected, we would need to be hands on during the application stage.

We can even arrange finance for you for your new home.  If you are new to the housing market, you will need a fresh mortgage (subject to status) to be based on the value of the plot with permission and the mobile home installed.  You may need bridging finance for the project, until the unit is installed.  If this is the case, please ask to speak with our financial adviser when contacting us.





If you have equity in your existing home, we can arrange for you to fund your holiday home by simply refinancing your existing home.  Please ask to speak with our financial adviser when contacting us.





Timber has been used by man for an enormous variety of purposes since pre-historic times, particularly in the construction of shelter and for artefacts used in day-to-day life.  Forests cover 30% of the earths surface.  Trees have been called "fountains of the earth" (Durrell 1993).


Today, timber and wood-based products continue to be used in construction, often in conjunction with other, man-made materials (metals, concrete, plastics). Wood is truly renewable in a relatively short time frame and can also be recycled through a succession of uses before returning to its constituent elements of carbon, water and energy.


Wood plays a major role in combating climate change. Greater use of wood products will stimulate the expansion of Europe's forests and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by substituting for fossil fuel intensive products."


• Wood products act as a carbon sink throughout their life

• Wood has the lowest energy consumption and the lowest CO2 emission of any commonly used building material

• Wood’s thermal insulation properties mean timber frame houses use less energy

• Wood is uniquely renewable

• Using wood products encourages forestry to expand, increasing the carbon sink effect and reducing the CO2 in the atmosphere


• Wood is created by photosynthesis and can be considered an efficient way of storing solar energy

• Recovering the energy from wood products at the end of their life - as a substitute for fossil fuels - increases the CO2 benefit of using wood.





Shorter construction time: While most homes that are built with brick and concrete can take up to and sometime exceed one year to complete, one of our homes built in 1/6 of the time. This time savings should result in a real cost benefits to you the end user.

Energy efficient: The Mobile Homes UK system is superior to traditional brick and concrete housing in that it provides for greater insulating capabilities in the walls and floors to keep the house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Consequently the cost of heating and cooling your home will significantly reduce. If you live in a brick and concrete house, you should already know that your home holds or retains the temperature of the season. It takes longer to heat the brick and concrete mass in the winter and it takes longer to release the heat in the summer. Moisture is also retained in a brick and concrete house resulting in the paint and plaster flaking of the walls and ceiling. A wood house "breathes", allowing excess moisture to escape naturally.

Earthquake resistant: While no structure built by man can withstand the forces of nature, one of our mobile homes are more earthquake resistant, with far less property damage compared to traditional brick and concrete houses, since timber buildings can absorb movement that would topple a brick building and spring back, virtually unaffected, in all but the worst cases. Due to the frequency of earthquakes, timber framed houses are very popular in Japan and other countries of the Pacific Rim. As a result of the deadly earthquakes that the country of Turkey experienced in 1999 the government has embraced timber houses and is actively pursuing alternative housing construction to replace their traditional construction methods.
