There are two ways you can build your Dan-Wood house: Client Completion and Turn-key. For both options Dan-Wood builds and installs the entire house structure, including the walls, roof, elevations, windows and technical installations.
The Turn-key option includes external and internal decorating and finishes, stairs, sanitary ware, doors, flooring, plumbing and utilities. The only thing you need to do is supply and fit your kitchen – and move in.
With the Client Completion option you carry out the internal works yourself. This might include painting and decorating, hanging internal doors, tiling, installing sanitary ware, stairs and other works.
Dan-Wood is a manufacturer of energy-efficient, prefabricated timber-frame houses. We offer over 70 different standard house designs which can be modified according to your individual needs and tastes. Or, if you prefer to design your home entirely from scratch, we can work with you on a completely bespoke house design. With Dan-Wood you can choose to live in a cosy bungalow, an extensive family house, an exclusive classic villa, or a stylish two-or three-storey detached house.
When you build a Dan-Wood house we work with you through every stage of the building process – from initial consultation on the best design to suit your lifestyle, to preparations for its construction and interior finishes. This is the Turn-key process. It basically means that all you have to do is make decisions and leave the rest to us. At each stage, you’ll be dealing with experienced architects, designers and craftsmen who will ensure quality and attention to detail at every stage. Once your house design is agreed, we build all the individual components in our factory in Poland. Every component is thoroughly quality-checked, and then shipped to your site in the UK. Then, once construction begins, you have a dedicated project manager who is in charge of every aspect of progress, keeping you informed as work progresses. Our workforce won’t leave the site until you’re completely satisfied.
We only ever use the best quality building and installation materials from reputable companies. These include Vaillant, Nibe, Marley, Rigips, Isover, Rehau, Roto, Hansgrohe, Hansa, Hüppe, Purmo, Novoferm and Classen. Dan-Wood houses have the RAL quality mark for building assembly and prefabricated buildings (the German equivalent of BBA (British Board of Agreement) certification in the UK). Dan-Wood also has ISO-9001 certification, and is continually monitored by the Building Materials Control in Dresden, which guarantees high quality and precise execution from production to assembly and completion.
How is your Dan-Wood house built?
The architectural plans for your house are sent to our factory in Poland where structural engineers design and build each component of your house including the walls, floors and roof panels.
The timber-frame components are precision-manufactured thanks to advanced digital software. Windows, doors, fire-resistant wall insulation, some service ducts and electrical connections are all installed at this time.
The internal walls are either prepared for your own application of paint, wallpaper or tiles, or are finished according to your choices.
Every component of the house is given a final quality-control inspection before it leaves the factory.
All house components and building materials are shipped to your site on special trucks, with a team of skilled tradesmen who are ready to start work.
Massive cranes assemble individual elements of the house – typically the basic structure will be in place in one or two days. The house will be roofed and watertight within one to four days.
Once construction is complete, a dedicated team begins work on the interior. This includes heating and electrical installations, fitting doors, decorating, flooring and tiling to your specified choices.
In eight to 12 weeks from the teams arriving on site you’re able to move in!!
A fixed price guarantee
We’ll tell you how much your house will cost right at the start and guarantee this fixed price for 9 months.
