This is the first house that I have had built and I managed the purchasing myself. The design,build and erection of the insulated frame was completed excellently by MBC. As a novice their help with completing their side of the project was invaluable Thanks Lee and your staff

What an outstanding team they are! Their attention to detail and professionalism is astonishing. They have guided me throughout the process and have thought of everything. The timber framed house they have given me is perfect. You can already tell that this house is going to be very warm and extremely airtight. I can't wait to move in. Thank you to every one of the team for the part you played.

The service and skill of everyone from MBC has been excellent, even better than I could have expected or hoped for. Everyone I have spoken to and interacted with has been extremely nice, friendly and professional and couldn't have done more to make sure that anything I wanted could be achieved (where physically possible!). My structure has ended up even better than we were expecting, thank you all so much and if anyone ever asks I will be more than happy to recommend you guys without hesitation.

I highly recommend MBC Timber Frame and especially for their Passive frame system which delivers Passivhaus levels of insulation and air-tightness. They supply a great quality product with faultless installation and high levels of coordination with other sub-contractors and ensure the envelope is airtight before handing over to the main contractor. Our last completed project with MBC delivered a new home that achieved Passivhaus certification. I look forward to working with the MBC team again.

What our clients says about MBC

Dealing with MBC has been a real pleasure from start to finish. “Nothing’s a problem!” seems to be their motto. Lots of help and useful suggestions when discussing the plans, to the standard of workmanship and helpful attitude of the site team. The MBC Foundation and build part was the most stress free part of the whole build, fantastic, thank you. 

Peter and Sue Purslow

Jan and I are delighted with the house and with everyone from MBC that we’ve worked with, so we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you guys to anyone who is considering doing a self build. The attitude and attention to detail of your guys ranks exceptional compared to most builders and tradespeople that we worked with. We both want to reiterate that we’re delighted by the house.

Terry and Jan Ellison

The MBC team consists of a great group of people, all with their own set of skills. We are so grateful to all of you. The men who came to our site were hardworking and courteous. It goes without saying that we will be singing MBC’s praises whenever we get the chance to promote the company
