Quality Design & Build Since 1997


Our Homes

Create a bespoke home for you and your family, without lifting a finger.

Our homes are designed and built to the most exacting standards,
for the most discerning customer. In fact, we only create homes
that we’d live in ourselves. If we put our name to it, it’s got
quality running through it.

You can count on that.

SB Homes - Our new build homes in Huddersfield

Our Promise

When we hand a home over to our client, it has been checked by every single one of us in the family.

We have a thorough, 25-point checklist that takes each of us over an hour to complete.

It’s part of our promise to never knowingly achieve less than perfect.

Bespoke Homes

Each of our homes is crafted for you and your lifestyle. The sooner you reserve your plot, the more you can tweak your home.

From choosing your bathroom or kitchen specification, to creating a cinema room, boxing gym or wardrobe room, we can help you to achieve your dream home without you having to lift a finger.

Use your home to reflect your style and personality.

Individual Designs

Find comfort in the fact that you won’t have the exact same home as your neighbour.

No two of our homes are a replica of each other.

Whether it’s the layout, orientation and elevation of the plot, size, number of storeys or garden size, each property is as unique as you are.

Take this a step further by taking control of the layout of your new home.

We’ll work with you, to make it work for you.

Technically Rich

We have an incredibly talented in-house team, who have decades of invaluable knowledge that can’t be bought.

Our founder Steve, head groundworker, Ian, and designer Steve Mitchell, only need to glance at a site to know how it needs to be engineered.

Other firms have to pay civil engineers for such knowledge, but we are lucky to have it in-house.

It means we can purchase sites that others wouldn’t touch.

Energy Efficient

We’ve been prioritising energy efficiency and sustainable building practices before anybody cared about it.

We stick to stringent building practices on air tightness, insulation, technologies, and quality of materials, saving you significant amounts of money on your bills every month.

Our homes are fitted with underfloor heating on the primary living floor, saving you money each month.

One of our apartment purchasers had a gas bill of just £3.96 in January 2023 – at the height of the gas crisis.

Quality On Every Corner

We take ultimate pride in our work, employing tradespeople who have years of experience and expertise in their trade, translating into quality craftmanship that is evident in every detail of your new home.

Where planning allows, we craft in natural, dyed stone which reflects the local vernacular.

Upon joining SB Homes, our tradespeople often comment that the quality of our materials and build methods are better than anywhere else they’ve worked.

We go above and beyond to ensure your home is perfect.

Award Winning

Empire Works was officially titled West Yorkshire’s ‘Best New Development’, by LABC (Local Authority Building Control) – the body which upholds quality standards in the building sector.

We were also shortlisted in the Yorkshire Property Industry Awards.

Local Expertise

We consult with local experts on our projects for planning permission, ground surveying, building regulation, remediation, flood risk assessment and structural inspection requirements.

This gives us a system of expertise that is unrivalled.

Accessible Homes

The Colne Valley has many farmhouses on the valley sides.

Many of our clients are homeowners who have lived in these farmhouses for most of their lives, but due to a lack of options, formerly felt trapped in a situation where they could either leave the area or stick where they were — in homes that no longer suited their accessibility requirements.

We build accessible apartments, which have lift access, are therefore the perfect solution for local demand. This ‘frees’ up properties for families moving up the ladder, and creates homes for those downsizing.

It is a win-win for everyone.
