Redesigned standard home building practices with technology, innovation and environmental footprint in mind.
The primary focus of each and every balanced earth home is uncompromising performance, environment-efficient running and most importantly, thoughtful design to reflect modern living.
Balanced Earth homes are a technology and design company founded in 2017 that build quality custom homes.
We apply the latest technology and innovation to change the way homes are traditionally built and design with the future in mind.
Our mission is to make living in a thoughtfully designed and well-built home a reality for everyone. The spaces we live in have a profound impact on us and our environment, so let us design the perfect space for you.
The company founder created balanced earth homes after struggling to find an innovative building company, to assist with creating his ‘dream home’ that he wanted to be designed to suit his and his families’ way of living. He discovered that many technological advances in the industry were being under utilised and homes were still being built on-site using cavity wall construction.
This has remained the unchanged and unimaginative method of construction for the last century; resulting in more and more carbon copy rows of homes being produced with the same age-old issues. As a keen traveler, it was easy for him to see how many other countries have used new technology to impact the way they build homes around the world. In the UK we are still using century old methods, which result in expensive processes, inefficient running costs, a negative impact on the environment and lines the pockets of large energy companies.
You won’t be surprised to hear that the UK appears nowhere on the lists of the worlds’ most environmentally friendly countries, with many other European countries leading the way in the top 10.
We are not the first to work on a better way of building homes; timber and metal framed houses have come and gone over the years, however these are focused on a cheaper way to construct a house, not a better way to design. It’s no secret that apart from some minor successes, none of these attempts have changed the industry.
Balanced Earth Homes approach is different to any other prefab, design-build, architecture or engineering firm that has ever existed in the UK. Up until now prefabrication has been viewed as a compromise, not a replacement for thoughtful, custom, architect-designed homes.
It has always been assumed that building a home needs to be choosing a pre-designed model from a catalogue of limited options or built homes on a large estate. Or alternatively going down the route of the traditional laborious custom designs process, which is firstly expensive and secondly time consuming, generally spanning over several months and ending up over budget with a subpar build quality.
These tiring and expensive processes are why most people never build a custom home. Balanced Earth Homes have revolutionised this process to make it applicable for affordable housing and for our customers to make their dream homes a reality.
We embrace the differences in how people live, plus we understand that good design is specific to each person’s individual needs of a property. This is why we have fine-tuned our technology to create unique, highly tailored, precision built homes, through an experience as effortless as purchasing a new car and using a configurator to do so online. In addition we are creating homes for a better future, to stand the test of time and be considerate of the environment, our homes are so responsive to their environments that their optimal energy performance is far superior to anything on the current market.
Furthermore, because of our shortened design process we can offer people a more interactive and engaging customer experience that will result in homes that are exactly what our customers want. Our homes closely suit each customer’s unique way of living and will meet and surpass all of the planning and local authority guidelines.
When it comes to manufacturing, we’re not just moving the traditional construction process into a factory. We are redesigning the details that make up a home to take advantage of the precision possible, in a controlled environment. Subsequently what this allows us to do is build homes that are up to 80% more energy efficient than the average new home on the market. There are no details overlooked on a balanced earth homes project.
Our combination of design optimisation and precision manufacturing allows us to make the experience of living in a balanced earth home better than even the most luxurious homes available today.
Our company ethos is to provide thoughtfully designed and well-built homes for everyone, to suit all budgets, from affordable to high-end. Our manufacturing methods allow us to be flexible and competitive one price, as we remain on par with the current home construction market. The main difference between ‘us’ and ‘them’ is the quality of the finished product, with each home different, and designed to suit the client’s specific needs.
Gone are the days of shoddily built, over-priced, carbon copy houses! Balanced Earth Home customers deserve more. Your home shapes the way you live and we continually re-invest, research, develop and position ourselves at the forefront of new technology – after all, that’s how we were founded. Let our homes enhance your environment, not consume its resources!
