MOBILE HOMES - £50,000 fitted





In the United Kingdom, as with other countries, the cost of establishing a home is moving further than ever away from first time buyers and others on a low income.  Is there an alternative to struggling for 25 years to own a home of your own - in the process paying a mortgage several times the value of the house in interest payments alone?  What if we were to tell you you we could install a luxury timber cabin for around £50,000, fitted.  This includes 2 double bedrooms; fitted kitchen and bathroom, ready for you to move in. You could install one of our Eco flat-packs yourself. They start at £25,000, depending on current timber prices. 



The smallest in our range: 18'x20'. This is an RE-pack. RE stands for Renewable Energy. This home has a solar conservatory, PV panels and a wind turbine, so is more expensive. The walls have a 278mm air-gap and triple insulation via quilts and honeycomb. A true zero carbon home.



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


What 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. 


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.



Utopia Tristar Partners 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 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.  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.
