The Wee House Company FAQs | Modular Home & Kit House Builders

Can you build on an island?


Yes, modular build is a very cost-effective way to build a home on an island. We have significant experience of island working including builds on the isles of Arran, Mull, North Uist, Lewis and Harris. We are a very popular home building option in areas where it can be difficult for people to source contractors to carry out a traditional build. Our modular builds have a number of benefits:

  • We take advantage of the economies of scale normally reserved for larger scale housing developments. As the build takes place in our factory, materials are ordered in bulk and our skilled tradesmen move between houses as required meaning a more cost-effective product.
  • Factory conditions facilitate better quality control whilst reducing waste and build times.
  • Building materials are stored and used in warm, dry conditions, rather than being exposed to the elements.
  • With minimal on-site time required, our team can deliver and complete houses quickly and cost effectively.
