We build self-contained modular homes that are assembled and finished off-site for delivery and on-site finishing. Built to individual specifications or to a set design and functionality, modular homes are high-specification, thermally efficient and low-cost.

Homes dropped into place

British made, our modular constructions are complete packages, able to be craned onto site as long as there is access to the land for a large vehicle. The whole building is delivered, dropped into place and connected up to water and electricity.

Minimal disruption

The complete service we provide ensures that there is minimal effect on the home or garden, the foundations needed are innovative and the whole installation is very quick. In most cases our living spaces are installed in under three days.

Self contained homes offer an excellent solution from holiday flats to supporting loved ones without moving home. With kitchen, bathrooms, bedroom areas and space to relax, the units can be modified to suit your requirements.

Living spaces offer a 100% built off site solution for housing, retail, hotel accommodation, events and exhibition, offices and a range of special purpose uses. Modules are 20m2, 30m2 and 40m2 and can be stacked and joined together side by side, lengthways or in an ‘L’ shape to create larger, modular buildings.

Designed and factory built to surpass exacting international construction standards and specifically UK building regulations, living spaces benefit from exceptional build quality and the highest levels of insulation keeping running costs low.

This range of ‘plug and play’ buildings are manufactured entirely at a factory in Great Britain  where they are built, equipped and entirely finished giving our clients complete cost certainty by reducing any work required on site to a bare minimum. Site infrastructure and installation is carried out by Modular Works experienced teams in the UK and abroad..

Small buildings can be delivered, and ready for immediate occupation in six weeks. Completed buildings are shrink wrapped for protection before delivery to site where the building is lifted into place using a Hiab or small crane.


Easy to install

Stand alone buildings do not require foundations. They can be installed on a concrete slab or pads, or can be supplied with purpose made self levelling ‘feet’ making them easy to install without any harmful damage on the site. They can also be relocated. This ‘out of the box’ housing solution is also ideal for remote locations where it is hard to access building materials and competent contractors.

UK Building regulations

Various designs provide instant, portable housing, anywhere. This exciting new range of self-contained homes are fully compliant with Part ‘L’ of UK building regulations (required for living accommodation in UK) and provided fully equipped and furnished, ready for immediate occupation.

Cost of living spaces

Dependent on options and delivery location living spaces, plug and play homes range in price from approximately £1250 per square meter (£116 per square foot) to £2000 per square meter (£186 per square foot) net of VAT, for a completed and fully equipped building. Lead times are currently around 8 weeks. Delivery and connection to local services (if required) is additional and depends on your location and access to the site you have chosen for your building.

Living spaces are created with functionality tailored to your exact requirements. Please contact us to discuss your requirement and budget expectations.

Key points

  1. Built and finished in Britain so the lead times are minimised.
  2. Completely constructed prior to delivery, the living spaces are simply delivered and lifted into position. Minimal disruption to your day and virtually no impact on the surrounding garden or home. The only requirement is access and space for the crane.
  3. Living spaces can be customised to meet individual specifications – from taps to beds, choose the size, functionality and finish, the complete package delivered to your door and carefully positioned for instant extension to your home. It couldn’t be any simpler.
  4. Should access be an issue we can construct your new  Living space on site although installation time will be longer.
  5. multiple living space modules can be joined together to create larger rooms or even a complete house.
  6. Lease and finance options
We were extremely impressed with the level of service from Modular Works. They helped us with the design, planning and installation of our new Living space. Our aim was to build a self-contained living accommodation in our large garden,  renting out through AirBnb and holiday letting sites...

Construction methods and specifications



Certain elements of our standard designs can be modified, according to individual needs – for instance, providing grab rails, wider and easier access for wheelchair-users, or adjustable-height surfaces Carepods® give you the cost and convenience benefits of a high-spec modular system, with the opportunity to get exactly the right solution for your care needs

Internal Specification

Internal Specification

Carepods are pre-installed with electrical and communications cabling, ducting, pipework, drainage etc for all the necessary utilities – including air-conditioning, if required Customers have a choice of shower-room sanitary-ware, kitchen units and appliances, fitted bedroom wardrobes, flooring material, overall décor style and colour finishes What starts life as a standard pod, becomes a stylish, comfortable

Exterior Cladding

Exterior Cladding

All of the cladding options for Carepods are chosen for their fire-retardance properties as much as their aesthetic appearance, weather protection and thermal insulation performance The external finish can blend in with surrounding buildings or contrast with them, be from a range of traditional timbers or a contemporary-styled finish – the choice is yours

Design Process

Design Process

Carepods are designed as a modular system of interlocking units that are pre-fabricated in a controlled environment, then transported to site for assembly This avoids the risk of on-site delays and damage from rain and frost, which can occur with traditional on-site construction The modular route is flexible, fast, cost-effective and high-quality

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

Carepods are built with innovative, eco-friendly materials and components – like electric underfloor heating – that deliver energy efficiency, low running costs and comfortable living Wall, floor and roof sections utilise composite Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for rigidity, strength and thermal efficiency All external windows and doors – including panoramic bi-folds, where specified – conform



Whether your ground is heavy clay, prone to water-logging, or on a slope, we can use the best foundation option to suit – without the need for the time-consuming, deep excavation that’s required for traditional brick buildings Carepods are relatively lightweight and can very often be mounted onto galvanised steel and concrete foundations that provide
